How to Stop Wasting Energy and Operate at Peak Efficiency

Most people don’t know how to use their energy efficiently.

Routines Take Away Most of the Work

“When we sit down day after day and keep grinding, something mysterious starts to happen. A process is set in motion by which, inevitably and infallibly, heaven comes to our aid. Unseen forces enlist our cause. Serendipity reinforces our purpose.” -Steven Pressfield

But once you start a routine, the routine takes all your energy-draining choices away. Everything is already set — now you just have to do it. Nothing to think about. All your energy goes into whatever you’re currently doing.

Only Low Performers Criticize, Gossip, and Complain

“Criticizing others wastes energy we could be using to grow.”

David Kadavy, Love Your Work podcast

Only low performers continue to waste energy criticizing others.

Most of the Things You Do Are Unimportant.

  1. Our regrets
  2. Our legacy

“Only think about the people you enjoy. Only read the books you enjoy, that make you happy to be human. Only deal with the people who love you back, who are winners and want you to win too.”

Invest in your important things. Only get to everything else if there’s still time.

  • If you ever got your boss to like you
  • If you boss fires you
  • If your political candidate wins this year
  • If you burn some bridges
  • If you don’t own the latest electronic
  • If you never become a millionaire
  • If you get rejected

If you want to stop wasting energy and operate at peak efficiency, then create a better system that produces results every day.
