There doesn’t ever seem to be any time to just sit and “enjoy” a quiet moment! And, the work load, whether personal or professional, we won’t even talk about that!

Does this describe you or do you find yourself constantly immersed in responding to emails and performing mundane tasks?

Tony Schwartz, founder of The Energy Project, who has been featured on the IDEAS AT WORK blog before, offers some great tips for finding your way back from being on overload to renewal! The great part is you will be able to experience this rejuvenation all while performing the same everyday tasks (you’ll just be handling things differently)! The point of it all is to find focus, and to do that Schwartz suggests that you: 

  1. Take the first 90 minutes of your day to work on your most important or challenging tasks, without interruption
  2. Follow-up with a deliberate break, even if only for a few minutes
  3. Take control by managing your time and energy
  4. If you’re a night owl and you have more energy later in the day, consider scheduling your most important work then
