The Power of Full Engagement © Copyright Philosopher’s Notes, LLC page 1 The Power of Full Engagement Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz Free Press © 2003 256 pages The Big Ideas Full Engagement: The 4 principles. Sprinters vs Marathoners. The Pulse of Life Honor it. Points & the time between ‘em. Drink Plenty of Water! And other tips. :) Turn Off the TV! (Please.) To Be Fully Engaged Emotionally. “How Am I THAT?” Fun shadow work. Purpose Intrinsic (vs. Extrinsic) Precision & Specificity Need both to get it done. Positive Rituals Build them. Now. Plz. Jump Ahead ... to the end of your life. GET YOUR WISDOM ON “Every one of our thoughts, emotions and behaviors has an energy consequence, for better or for worse. The ultimate measure of our lives is not how much time we spend on the planet, but rather how much energy we invest in the time that we have. The premise of this book—and of the training we do each year with thousands of clients—is simple enough: Performance, health and happiness are grounded in the skillful management of energy.” ~ Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz from The Power of Full Engagement The Power of Full Engagement is a *great* book. I read it on my Kindle and I basically highlighted half the book. It’s so densely packed with Big Ideas that we can apply to our lives that, if you’re feelin’ low on energy or if you’re the kinda person who likes to play full out and is always looking for ways to optimize, this book is on the “must buy” list. :) Grounded in the research and consulting they’ve done with the world’s greatest athletes, Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz provide a set of Ideas and tools to help “Corporate Athletes” function at optimal levels of performance. At the heart of their wisdom is the fact that: “Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance.” In this Note, we’ll start with the 4 Principles of Full Engagement and then take a look at a handful of some of my favorite Big Ideas on how to get our Full Engagement on. If you’re feelin’ it, get the book. It’s loaded with case studies and practical tools to help you take your energy and life to the next level. Powerful stuff. The 4 Principles of Full Engagement “Principle 1: Full engagement requires drawing on four separate but related sources of energy: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Principle 2: Because energy diminishes both with overuse and with underuse, we must balance energy expenditure with intermittent energy renewal. Principle 3: To build capacity we must push beyond our normal limits, training in the same systematic way that elite athletes do. Principle 4: Positive energy rituals—highly specific routines for managing energy—are the key to full engagement and sustained high performance.” That’s the brilliant book in an *itty bitty* nutshell. :) Now let’s explore a few of the dozens of Big Ideas on how to bring those principles to life!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
