Overcoming internal resistance -- attempting to force yourself into doing somthing you don't want to do -- will drain down your energy faster than any task itself. Either find a way to like what you do, or do something else.

Some things boost your energy level, while others drain it. You need to know which is which. What drains your energy? Worry, medical or dental concerns, work piled on your desk, not enough sleep, diet, unfinished tasks, negative people, angry coworkers... anything else? Once identified, take action to eliminate these drainers and replace them with energy gainers: Exercise, high energy foods, more sleep, medical attention, friendly faces -- anything that makes you feel better, perform better and increases your energy rather than depletes it.

Don't waste energy dreading a job. Change how you view it, change how you do it, or change who will do it.

"The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary." ~ Thomas A. Edison

So, Are You Committed to Maximum Success?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Energy Factor 1B? (Promote Energy Gainers -- Eliminate Energy Drainers.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (1B rated 8 or better) suggests you actively seek out the cause of physical and mental burn-out -- and you eliminate it -- before it takes a toll on your performance. You have the endurance to be your best, all day long, every single day. You keep going when everyone else is ready to quit. You spend your time on activities that produce more energy than they consume. You're capable of getting as much work done in the last hour of the day, as in the first. You have the power to plow through obstacles and setbacks without undue strain -- and still have the energy to enjoy family, friends and recreational activities.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you're someone whose energy can be spent, well before the day is done. You start out with high expectations for what you want to accomplish, but too frequently, your best intentions slowly fade as the energy drainers take their toll. Jobs are left half done because you don't have the energy to complete them. Phone calls are deferred until later because you're not "up to the call," and personal issues stay unresolved longer than they should. Your day is shot well before it's over, and you rarely have the "left over" energy to devote to friends and family.

What happens when you do Factor 1B more frequently?

You have more power. By staying ahead of the energy curve, you get more out of every minute in your day, because you put more energy into every minute you have.

You accumulate performance positives like "Energetic, Refreshed and Motivated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do Factor 1B?

You have less power. When you allow energy drainers to take their toll, productivity drops like a rock, goals slip beyond your grasp and your positive attitude bites the dust.

Negatives like "Drained, Weary and Unmotivated" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
