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 low key for me

I've listened to a lot of amazing audio books recently and this one just isn't one of them unfortunately. Lacking a great deal of information and the majority of the audiobook if not 95% is focused on convincing what 'benefits' - 'have' and 'could be' - 'maybe' from managing your energy. I'm afraid it's just not there. Glad it was free through 🙂 I'd recommend 'Getting Things Done' by David Allen or 'Work Fuel' by Graham Allcott

Short, sweet but basic.

It's free, so no complaints from me on that end. It's short and pretty basic but you might learn a thing or two if you are keen on learning.
