Q. I need to get a better handle on how I expend energy, and the activities/people/events that exhaust me. Any suggestions?

A. I commend you for wanting to manage your energy more effectively. It begins with awareness. I have tons more energy now because I’ve learned to expend it more wisely.

In my book MindWaves, there are several examples of how to evaluate your energy expenditures. Plus I have included an evaluation tool to make it easier, at least initially. Before long you’ll get the hang of it and be able to do in your head. Go for it! You’ll be glad you did!
