In my late 30’s I learned the difference between managing my energy versus managing my time. This was a game changer. Later in my 40’s when I was leading a retreat at the Omega Institute, I received an even more powerful gift: the understanding that my energy, or life force, is like gold. I am the gatekeeper, the one who gets to decide how, when and where I allocate this precious and finite asset. Now, I pause daily to ask, “What’s the best use of my energy right now?” In my 2-minute Live Inside Out video below, I explore this theme and I invite you to join me!
Want more? Read my post Is Your Pace Sustainable (+ 9 ways to say “no”)? I’d love to hear how the week goes for you and what you notice around how you manage YOUR energy. If you happen to live in Western North Carolina, consider joining me for my new women’s group starting this spring (details below). We’ll focus on how to say, “no,” and cultivate an unwavering allegiance to ourselves!
