Producing new and better results requires the investment of energy in productive labour. This makes your energy one of your most precious assets.
When energy is lost or misplaced, productivity is hindered and minimalized. To preserve your protective energy, it’s critical that you understand the things that can drain that energy and protect yourself against them.
In this article, I share three (3) factors that can speedily drain your productive energy hence,
- ACTIVITY without DIRECTION.
When you keep expending effort in unclear and undefined directions, you will waste your energy.
Before embarking on any task and committing to action, clarify its purpose and establish an intended outcome that will guide your actions and define success for you.
- BURDEN without ACTION.
If there’s something on your mind you need to get done, please find a way to get it done.
Design a strategy for doing it.
Ask for the opportunity to do it.
Seek support in doing it.
Launch into doing it.
Not giving expressions to your compelling desires can drain you of emotional energy. If you have to do something, find a way to do it.
- CONFLICT without RESOLUTION.
If you cannot deal with issues, problems, difficulties on your path, you will become consistently frustrated.
Life can be messy. It’s critical that you master problem-solving skills. The higher you rise, the more problems you face.
When you are able to deal with the problems that come your way, you will be more motivated and available to do what matters.
Avoid these three things and you will enjoy adequate supply of energy for producing great works.
