There are few tools that the author provides to manage one's energy other than sleep, exercise and take breaks. Most of the stories are about why managing energy is important. I got this book to get solutions but found none.
I would change the title of the book to "Chicken Soup for Full Engagement" because it is full of stories but no solutions.
Tony Robbins is so much better in providing comprehensive solutions. I wish I never got this audible.
well, this book gives a lot of info. combined from other self-help books (IMO), but fail to address things very deeply, but you get a concept about what they are trying to say. in essense, it gives you "ideas", but fail to guide you through a step by step process, and it is because this book has too many "ideas", such as meditation, self-cultivation, personal spiritual meaning, work out theory, ..... etc. which, you can only get a glimpse of each subject. and for a length of a book, with these many topics, there is no way to get a good understanding with out seeking for external help,(such as going to their website, and maybe sign up for their programs, etc).. which I think they are very commercial.
Law Student/Warehouse Laborer. Dog Lover. Sports Enthusiast. I enjoy reading books on self improvement and business.
I really enjoyed the tips and taking other factors into account such as diet, rest, emotion, exercise and personal relationships.
Very good book. Easy to understand. Easy to apply to everyday life. Great job by the authors.
If you're new to self help and motivational books then this one gives you a good overview. I found it lacking depth and found it to be just a shadow of some of the great classics out there.

This is one of those books I keep around and listen to again every six months or so. Great insight on how to consistently bring your A game to work and life.
I found this book to be full of useful - if not earth shattering - information. On some level we all know that exercise, rest, and time with our loved ones will help us perform better. But often we need reminders (and a dose of evidence) to actually act on this information. I especially liked all of the examples of busy professionals who the author worked with. This made the information easy to relate to as I am facing pretty much the same challenges.
It was an easy listen and a message that I needed to hear.
'There is no new information just new perspectives.' The perspectives and information offered here by the authors is backed by experiences of people from all walks of life and very well researched. Models of success - taking the stories of others and their transitions using key strategies. I found this book helpful and productive. Filled with insightful ideas, perspectives and methodologies that make you reevaluate your own productivity and energy levels. Well thought out and organized ideas. A great tool in the tool box of life.
Hmm... Who would have thought that to engage fully you need to take care of your health by eating healthy and taking some time off for yourself? Unbelievable! Glad that a book like that finally came out! I tried to follow author advice avoiding negative thoughts while listening to why I shouldn't smoke, but simply gave up and lit one up to calm down the nerves from listening to this.. Maybe this is simply not for me, but then again, without a $75 online accesment who am I to judge?
