I haven't had a great week. I've attended a lot of meetings and I've found excuses to not be truly productive. This all changed after two wonderful conversations tonight.
Why did my whole week change for the better?
I did something that energizes me.
It's important to take stock of what energizes you and what drains you. Meetings and procrastination drain me. Colorful conversations excite me. What gives you energy? Is it solving problems? Is it speaking? Is it fixing things? Is it conversations? Whatever that is, do more of that. We are all wired extricably different than one another. To do what others around you are doing and expect to feel energized is a bad place to start. Measure yourself through the day what gives you energy and what takes away your energy.
