"Too often, the monotony of a hectic lifestyle causes us to expend all excess energy on trivial activities. Learning to redirect most of your energy will empower you to reach each dream much sooner." Dr.K. John
Everything in life requires some attention and some energy. Everything that you do requires some energy. Everything that you do requires you to spend some energy and so everything costs energy.
It takes some energy to wake up in the morning, get dressed and go to work. It takes some energy to make breakfast in the morning. If that energy or time associated with that energy is spent on something else, either you have no breakfast before you leave home or the energy is spent at another time or lost.
It takes some energy to drive to work or anywhere else and while you are exerting your energy doing that, you cannot be elsewhere doing something else. You can spend your energy on a number of things at the same time within the same space and time zone, which is called multitasking but everything that you do requires spending some energy.
You could be stuck in traffic and spend your energy getting frustrated or alternatively use the opportunity to stay calm and preserve your energy or direct it to constructive thought. You could be on the phone trying to resolve some issues and spend your energy that way, although texting and driving is not recommended.
When you get to work, you are spending your time and energy to make a living. You are spending your time, your energy and ultimately your life working for someone else. Even if you are working for yourself you are spending energy and time, although maybe that is energy better spent and more fulfilling.
You can spend your energy and time being productive and constructive or spend your energy and time being lazy or playing the role of critic or gossip. I prefer the productive and constructive option. Even gossip takes up some energy but is it energy well spent or energy that could be utilized more constructively and productively?
Each and every capacity of us takes up energy and time. It takes a lot of energy to be a husband or wife, parent or guardian, professional, worker, baby sitter. friend or even foe. At the end of the day, a lot of energy is spent and you reach exhaustion.
If you have enough energy left from your reserves or from a few cans of red bull, you might just be able to sit down and catch an episode of your favorite TV series. If you have spent your energy wisely and have some left, you might just be able to spend some time with family or some quality time by yourself. If you still have energy left you might just be able to slot in a moment of passion or you might even forget about having a meal and have no energy left for a passionate moment and schedule that for the weekend.
Maybe tomorrow, I will spend some energy on myself and or my dreams, you might tell yourself. Maybe, maybe not. Maybe tomorrow, I will get to do what I did not do today, you might try and convince yourself. The trick is to manage and spend your energy wisely. You have some time, but not all the time in the world.You have to spend and direct your energy wisely. Spend some energy on yourself and your dreams. It is not being selfish but being sensible about how you expend your energy.Spend some energy and time with family and friends and lovers and delegate some energy and time to work. Be proactive, not reactive.
Spend your energy wisely today, through the week and the days ahead and ultimately you spend your life wisely.
