About this title: We live in digital time; the pace is rapid-fire and relentless and many of us experience 24/7 demands on our time. Always rushing to catch up, we try to cram as much as possible into every day. We are wired up, but we are melting down. However, Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz demonstrate that it is managing energy, not time, that determines our effectiveness at work and in our health and happiness in our personal lives, arguing that this fundamental insight can revolutionize our understanding of how to manage our lives. Their book is a scientifically-based training programme which they guarantee fuels high energy and top performance in today's high-stress, high-speed world. In the vein of Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" the programme aims to improve your performance at work, eliminate burnout and restore balance to your life. At the heart of this programme is The Corporate Athlete training system, which executives from dozens of Fortune 500 companies have paid thousands of dollars to learn. The key elements of the programme were developed over a period of 25 years to help some of the world's greatest athletes perform at their best under brutal, competitive pressure. Here, it has been adapted to suit corporate executives and homemakers alike. The programme will show you specifically how to: mobilize four key sources of energy; balance energy expenditure with intermittent energy renewal; expand your capacity by training the same way elite athletes do; and create highly specific, positive routines to make lasting changes. The result is the life-changing power to be fully engaged, which means to be physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused and spiritually aligned.
