Are you Exhausted as You Strive to be Efficient?
Efficiency has been a theme with clients as of late.
And when I stop and think about it, it has been for me, too, it is part of why I use a planner.
We obsess about doing things quickly. We obsess about how many things we can do in a certain amount of time.
Part of this is a scarcity mentality around time. There is not enough time to do the adulting AND have fun. So we need to efficiently adult.
I am so very guilty of this.
Then I has a thought, a question, a revelation…you ready?
What of it isn’t about efficiency?
What if it is about energy. What if we shift mindset to instead strive for energy NOT efficiency. This actually speaks to the quest for balance. Balance is having space for those things that we get done out of necessity (although you may enjoy some of these, too) and activities that fuel you so that you can partake in the activities that maybe take more energy then give.
This ‘leads me to another question.
What are your non-negotiables? What are the things that have to happen in order for you to have energy and be your best. What gives you energy and ability to be present.
Think about it.
It’s not about time, its about energy. What gives you energy?
Let me know!
To a life all in!
