Publisher's Summary

We live in digital time. Our pace is rushed, rapid-fire, and relentless. Facing crushing workloads, we try to cram as much as possible into every day. We're wired up, but we're melting down. Time management is no longer a viable solution. Managing energy, not time, is the key to enduring high performance as well as to health, happiness, and life balance.

The number of hours in a day is fixed, but the quantity and quality of energy available to us is not. This fundamental insight has the power to revolutionize the way you live your life. The Power of Full Engagement is a highly practical, scientifically based approach to managing your energy more skillfully both on and off the job.

At the heart of the program is the Corporate Athlete training system. During the past decade, dozens of Fortune 500 companies have paid thousands of dollars to learn the Corporate Athlete training system. So have FBI swat teams, critical care physicians and nurses, salesmen, and stay-at-home moms. The Power of Full Engagement lays out the key training principles and provides a powerful, step-by-step program that will help you to:

  • Mobilize four key sources of energy
  • Balance energy expenditure with intermittent energy renewal
  • Expand capacity in the same systematic way that elite athletes do
  • Create highly specific, positive energy management rituals

    The Power of Full Engagement provides a life-changing roadmap to becoming more fully engaged on and off the job.

      "Don't Bother- If you are looking for solutions"
      Would you try another book from Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz and/or Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ?

      No.


      What was most disappointing about Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ’s story?

      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.


      Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ’s performances?

      NO


      If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Full Engagement?

      I would change the title of the book to "Chicken Soup for Full Engagement" because it is full of stories but no solutions.


      Any additional comments?

      Tony Robbins is so much better in providing comprehensive solutions. I wish I never got this audible.

      "Not worth the time"

      Repeats many self-help tools that have been around for years. I recommend skipping this one.

      "i say it is worth the money.."

      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.

      "Nothing new here!"

      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.

      "It's a keeper"

      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.

      "A useful reminder"

      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.

      "New Perspectives"

      '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.

      "Fully disengaged..."

      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?
