Time vs. Energy


Do you spend time working when you have no energy?

At other times, do you have energy and think, “This would be a good time to be working?”

Here is an idea.  Schedule your day so the energy for certain activities actually matches the times when you have the right amount of energy for the task.

Let me give you some examples:

  • It is Friday afternoon and you are running low on gas.  Is this a good time for you to meet a top client or is this a time when you can meet effectively with a vendor?
  • It is Tuesday in the middle of the day and you normally have lots of energy.   Perhaps this is when you should schedule your “tough” client meetings?
  • Do you work well at night being creative on case design?  Schedule that work for then.

Biorhythms are real but different for everybody.  Track yours carefully using pencil and paper. 

After a few weeks, a pattern will emerge for the best times to meet with easy clients, difficult clients, and vendors—or just doing some computer work.

You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to do the right task at the right time.  Schedule accordingly!


Guide – Your body’s rhythms are real.  Pay attention and schedule your week accordingly.

Action Item – Begin tracking the best days and times to do particular tasks. Ask your assistant for help.  You will be thrilled with the results as you feel less drained.
