I have listened to it several times and recommended it to many people I work with as well as my husband. It's message that we all have limited energy is a critical one.
I changed some of the things I do in my life.
Always on the lookout for the next great read
This was a short piece which was tightly focused on energy and how to manage energy. It began from the standpoint that time is a finite resource whilst energy can be renewed. Then it went into the ways to renew energy. Great listen. I will undoubtedly listen to it again - something I do with very few titles.
I liked the tight focus. It focused on one area and covered it well. I'm definitely looking at more from the Harvard Business Review.
He was easy to understand, didn't speak too fast or too slow and seemed to impart an enthusiasm for the topic which was enjoyable.
Always strive for an open mind.
The author definitely knows their subject
Not a lot of practical guidelines, due to the briefness. The Power of Full Engagement gets in a lot more depth.
Tell us about yourself!
Good one! Thanks to Audible for having this in store. I would recommend this book to my family and friends.
I'm a speck in the universe trying to seize the most out of life and sometimes step into a great story and live the life of an other.
Perform an audit to recognize the energy destroyers and practice rituals that help manage the renewable resource, energy. Love it!
I kind of tuned out after half of it.
More points and longer pauses between those.
Voice was easy to listen to.
Spend more time doing enjoyable things and be more purposeful in my work.
Busy Astrologist and a tour leader trying to listen books
Highly effective performance.
I already do that half an hour walk daily, breathing excersise, but I didn't really thought of using voice mail to recall all the messages. Much more effective than reading SMS or emails. I shall try that one too.

Very interesting but quick pace narration made it difficult to stay focused. Starts and finishes with plug for HBR!
The article is very interesting but the reader's voice is very monotonous which made it difficult to concentrate on the content.
