Is time management is different than energy management?
Energy management is more important than time management?
Do you know how to use the Energy effectively to become your best productive self?
Let’s talk about why energy and time management is so important and needs to be prioritized above implementing any other productivity or self-care strategy.
Energy management is the idea of managing your work and your productivity around your energy levels. And Time management refers to organizing your productivity with your calendar at the centre.
“If you’re trying to be more productive, don’t analyse how you spend your time. Pay attention to what consumes your attention.” — Adam Grant
Time is finite and out of your control. Energy is renewable and in your control.
Time is stopping all distractions and about what you’re doing. Energy is being mindful of distractions and when you are going to do something.
The best use of our time is on what we can control (energy) versus what we can’t (time).
Some benefits of good time & energy management
- Less stress
- Better work-life balance
- Greater focus
- Higher levels of productivity
- Less procrastination
Time is constrictive because there are set times to do set things. Energy is flexible because there is an element of choice to do certain tasks at certain times. So effectively planning to use energy while doing any timed project would help you achieve any task easily.
