Energy Matching

Your energy fluctuates a lot throughout the day.

And if you want to perform at your best consistently, it’s good practice to schedule your days accordingly.

For instance, I’ve noticed that my creative energy is substantially higher in the morning.

So, I’ve scheduled a non-negotiable two-hour time block for writing each workday morning.

After lunch, my energy is better suited for less focus-demanding tasks.

So, that’s when I do other business-related tasks like having meetings, updating my website, and answering emails.

In the late afternoon, I typically do my best running, so that’s when I usually hit the trail.

You can think of this strategy as energy matching, and it’s a simple two-step process:

  1. Reflect on what your energy levels are typically like at different times during the day.
  2. To the extent possible, schedule your tasks accordingly.

The better you manage your energy, the more you’ll get out of your time.
