Doctors' energy levels
07 January 2013
Fully recharged? Or are you running on empty already?Time is a finite resource. It’s an issue that almost always comes into sessions with my clients. None of us feel like we have enough of it and at the beginning of a New Year, we feel the passage of time more keenly. How we spend this valuable resource and how effective and efficient we are at it, is a common concern. One-way of repositioning our relationship with time is to think about how energized we are when we are spending time. We cannot change how much time we have, but we can control how much energy we have.
Schwartz at The Energy Project describes a model of four energy dimensions that should be invested in:
...greater capacity makes it possible to get more done in less time at a higher level of engagement and with more sustainability.” Tony Schwartz.
- Physical Energy – sleep, exercise, diet and taking breaks.
- Emotional Energy – defuse negative emotions, fuel positive emotions, and review upsetting situations.
- Mental Energy – reduce interruptions to important thinking tasks, stay goal focussed and switch jobs at healthy intervals.
- Spiritual Energy – identify those task that give you more energy, allocate more time to those tasks that are really important to you and live by your core values.
