This is part 3 of a 4-part series designed to help you be more in touch with your energy levels and the various ways to manage it.
There are many ways to spend your water…
..but how does water waste happen?
Most of the time you don’t even realize you’re wasting water until, all of a sudden, you’re exhausted.
One of the biggest energy creeps of all is multitasking.
It sure sounds like a very productive thing to do, but more often than not, when we try to multitask, what we’re actually doing is jumping from task to task at an incredible speed. We’re not solving two problems at the same time, we’re just solving one, then another, then jumping back…
And one of the biggest energy drains when you work, is to just start. When you get your focus, you get in a flow and things start moving, right?
You’re more likely to blow a bulb if you keep turning it off and on instead of just letting it stay on for a while. The exact same thing happens with your brain.
In our bucket metaphor, I call this splashing your water. You’re not diving in, you’re just splashing your energy away for no good reason. And then a lot of it ends up unused on the ground.
For now, hold on to your water. Don’t splash it.
