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.

learning to manage energy by working smarter

strategies for learning to manage energy by working smarter, rather than working harder.

sometimes, it's really as simple as managing your focus and adopting good work habits.

Aspects of this book reminds me of the book:
"manage your time, manage your life " by Brian Tracy. And the book "Principles" by Ray Dalio.

keep growing and achieving more

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.
