在我们之前的访谈里,猛犸老师就曾经介绍,管理时间的实质是管理精力。今天这篇文章 Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time 很详细地介绍了如何管理精力:

Defined in physics as the capacity to work, energy comes from four main wellsprings in human beings: the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. In each, energy can be systematically expanded and regularly renewed by establishing specific rituals—behaviors that are intentionally practiced and precisely scheduled, with the goal of making them unconscious and automatic as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, without intermittent recovery, we’re not physiologically capable of sustaining highly positive emotions for long periods.
Becoming aware of the difference between the facts in a given situation and the way we interpret those facts can be powerful in itself.
The most effective way people can change a story is to view it through any of three new lenses, which are all alternatives to seeing the world from the victim perspective.
With the reverse lens, for example, people ask themselves, “What would the other person in this conflict say and in what ways might that be true?”
With the long lens they ask, “How will I most likely view this situation in six months?”
With the wide lens they ask themselves, “Regardless of the outcome of this issue, how can I grow and learn from it?”
Unless people intentionally schedule time for more challenging work, they tend not to get to it at all or rush through it at the last minute.
