Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance.
The secret to high productivity that actually lasts is not managing time or working harder—it’s all about managing yourself, specifically your energy.
We all have the same 24 hours every day. The main reason why some people achieve 10x more in any given day than most people do in a month, is not because they manage time better—it’s because they manage their energy better.
If you want the absolute best chance to succeed at getting things done better, your approach should always be the same; focus on quality work. This means recognizing that not all work matter equally. Shifting from one task to another in rapid succession, with the aim to get more things done is not sustainable.
Focus on quality work that contributes to the bigger goal. Don’t compromise the quality of your work.
Prioritise your tasks and projects. Choose your actions and compress similar activities, setting a timer if necessary. Take breaks for mental recovery in between actions.
