Everyone Should Read This!

Would you listen to Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time (Harvard Business Review) again? Why?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I changed some of the things I do in my life.

Instinctively Knew Some Of This But Great Read

What made the experience of listening to Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time (Harvard Business Review) the most enjoyable?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about Todd Mundt’s performance did you like?

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.

Good but limited

What made the experience of listening to Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time (Harvard Business Review) the most enjoyable?

The author definitely knows their subject

Any additional comments?

Not a lot of practical guidelines, due to the briefness. The Power of Full Engagement gets in a lot more depth.

Too wordy and not very broken down.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I kind of tuned out after half of it.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More points and longer pauses between those.

What three words best describe Todd Mundt’s voice?

Voice was easy to listen to.

Did Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time inspire you to do anything?

Spend more time doing enjoyable things and be more purposeful in my work.

Effective

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 useful evidence based advice

I've listened to this and read this several times. The rituals have made a huge difference to my energy levels. I now can much more often make it home in the late evening without being exhausted.
