    I would have avoided a lot of pain and suffering if I had read this book two months ago The central conceit of The Power of Full Engagement is that Energy not time is the fundamental currency of high performance basically the number of hours you work is less important than your energy levels during those hoursI picked up this book because I was pretty burnt out For months I had been working around the clock on a big project for my startup I used to look forward to each day but work just wasn't fun any Reading this book I found myself saying that sounds a lot like how I feel right now with many of the cases they discussed It was a wake up callAll through college I considered myself a personal efficiency GTD ninja But as I read this book I realized that although my time was nominally managed uite well I had lost the balance in my life and the uality of both my work and my personal life and fitness were suffering as a resultLoehr and Schwartz do an excellent job laying out their philosophy on how to be fully engaged Much of what they says stems from research on how professional athletes sustain extremely high levels of performance Some of the most important insights Physical energy is the fundamental source of fuel in life We too must learn to live our own lives as a series of sprints—fully engaging for periods of time and then fully disengaging and seeking renewal before jumping back into the fray to face whatever challenges confront us Creating positive rituals is the most powerful means we have found to effectively manage energy in the service of full engagement NOTE the authors use the word ritual with no religious overtones it's like strong habits that you really commit to like setting aside an hour each night to play with your kids and never letting anything else encroach on that time Another example they use a lot is the warm up ritual a tennis player does before each serve Far from precluding spontaneity rituals provide a level of comfort continuity and security that frees us to improvise and to take risks The sustaining power of rituals comes from the fact that they conserve energy “We should not cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing” wrote philosopher A N Whitehead back in 1911 “The precise opposite is the case Civilization advances by extending the number of operations which we can perform without thinking about them” In contrast to will and discipline which imply pushing ourselves to action a well defined ritual pulls us We feel somehow worse if we don’t do it Expanding capacity reuires a willingness to endure short term discomfort in the service of long term reward Sustained high performance is best served by assuming the mentality of a sprinter not a marathoner Over the span of a thirty to forty year career performance is optimized by scheduling work into 90 to 120 minute periods of intensive effort followed by shorter periods of recovery and renewal After interviewing a large sample of managers and their employees the Gallup Organization found that no single factor clearly predicts the productivity of an employee than his relationship with his direct superior More specifically Gallup found that the key drivers of productivity for employees include whether they feel cared for by a supervisor or someone at work; whether they have received recognition or praise during the past seven days; and whether someone at work regularly encourages their developmentI've already made significant changes in my daily life as a result of reading this book largely in the form of some new rituals like Running 3 miles at 8AM 6 days a week Going home for an hour at lunch and reading in a park by my house Taking a 30 minute nap at 430PM each day Only checking personal email at noon 5PM and 10PM Writing in a daily log for 5 minutes each day Reading in bed from 11 to midnight each nightEven though I'm actually working fewer hours I've already been far productive than I've been all summer I actually find myself pretty excited to get back to work and I'm certainly in a much positive place emotionally now too Now to be fair I've only been doing this for a week so it's too early to tell if this is a long term winning plan But it certainly feels like it isFive stars not because it's even particularly well written in fact it sometimes sounds a bit like a sales pitch for their consulting firm but so did GTD in certain parts but because the problems this book addresses are real and the solutions work It has already made a huge difference in my uality of life

    This was not my book My hackles were raised on page 42 when the authors detailed publisher Nancy Woodhull's busy work focused lifestyle eg enjoying recording new ideas while on holiday adjacent to her death from cancer aged 52 They say There is no way of determining conclusively whether there was any relationship between Woodhull's work habits and her early death but her profile was not significantly different from many of the Japanese who die from karoshiOkay so a karoshi deaths are due to heart attacks and strokes Not cancer Work stress does not cause cancerb that wording?And c you don't need to threaten readers with cancer in order to spruik the benefits of a balanced lifeThe book is from 2003 and it's in a very dated 90s style of writing Overall I just didn't like it

    Different than I had expected as it is one of the books that gets talked about at the office The concept of needing recovery and rest really stuck with me I remember working 20 hour days and just pushing and pushing until I was 'done' which was impossible But with a new job 9 hours of pure focus is exhausting The idea of creating little rituals throughout the day really appealed to me I liked that they included tons of examples of people who in very small ways changed their habits but improved their uality of life This book was much less of 'how to get done' type of book It really was about atuning with your purpose and vision and reaping the benefits of that as a side effect at work I'm really keen on setting up new habits with my new job and trying to find ones that feed me This book prompted me to set up some daily intervals on my calendar to 'recover' and see if I can get done in less time if I attend to the other parts of my life fully The book really stresses the physical emotional mental and spiritual aspects of one's life I did read it in a short span of time and am interested in rereading it in a few months time to remember some of the advice and principles It's a lot to think about absorbing at once Here's a uote Purpose fueled by the feeling of deficit also narrows our attention and limits our possibilities Imagine for a moment that you are out on the sea in a boat that springs a leak Your purpose immediately becomes mobilized around keeping the boat from sinking But so long as you are busy bailing water you can't navigate towards a destination The same is true in our lives When we are preoccupied with filling our own holes to stay afloat we have little energy available to define any deeper or enduring purpose By contrast when we are able to move from the inner experience of threat to one of challenge we introduce a whole new range of possibilities into our lives Rather than reacting to fear we can focus on what moves us and feels meaningful pg 135

    The message is clear optimal performance comes from living a balanced life not from working 12 15 hours straight What will get us results is not the number of hours we put in but the uality of those hours which is affected not only by the specific skills we bring to our job but by what we do outside the workplace in the physical emotional mental and spiritual spheres What Schwartz is saying may be counter intuitive how logical does it sound to say that if you work less you get done? And yet it's true Many people spend way too much time at work without allowing for adeuate time for the essential recovery process to unfold Our work culture is built on the assumption that we function like computers in a linear fashion It just so happens that we are humans and we function rhythmically in an oscillatory fashion Sleep good nutrition regular exercise a healthy emotional life and a strong sense of purpose are essential factors for our performance and general well being When they are lacking we are underperforming no matter how good our technical skills are and we are leading a dangerously unidimensional life In order to correct our dysfunctional habits we need to diagnose them and then establish positive rituals which in time 30 to 60 days should engrain new healthy and productive habits For me I found that I needed sleep exercise and time to do non work related activities such as reading writing and watching moviesdocumentaries To unlearn old habits is not easy and it takes a lot of willpower But the results in terms of performance and uality of life should be well worth it

    While certainly targeted at white collar workers with nuclear families to come home to the principles in this book are general than that and I found it helpful and inspiring despite living a alternative lifestyle While the idea of needing stress and recovery for maximal performance was not foreign to me this book makes the value of oscillation super clear whether it's for getting the most out of physical training with intervals maximizing mental performance at work or increasing emotional control and resilience The illustration of how high power athletes use rituals for recovery was super useful If you don't oscillate you're a flat linerI disagree with some of the book's advice on eating particular its encouragement of snacking 5 6 small meals a day but I suspect that's mostly because the book was published in 2003 so the advice is a bit dated Eating healthy food on a snacking schedule is better than grabbing fast food at your desk though which is probably why they got great results using that advice See for info on the snacking myth

    The Power of Full EngagementI love innovative books when you're reading a book a day like I am it's hard to be impressed with ideas that you've read in 4 5 other books this book is the exceptionI realize that most of us have a focus on managing our time schedules meetings and not what the author Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz suggest which is manage your energyThere are so many examples that answered literally every uestion and objection I had regarding managing time vs energyHe links that full engagement as a person takes successful energy managementHe shows how there are 4 dimensions of energy body emotion mind and spirit no new age information hereHe focuses on performance and precision and gives many exercises and a solid system to followI will also say this is a great dinner conversation book I have had many conversations about the ideas in this book and it's absolutely entrepreneur reading material mom material and the rest that have a will for full engagement with their life life's work and relationships around them


  10. says:

    This was an interesting read It focuses on the idea that instead of managing time we should manage our energy since there is always too much to do It talks about making sure we are balancing our spiritual mental emotional and physical energy It's also talks about changing our view from running a marathon through life which produces burnout to small sprints with periods of recovery in between I really enjoyed reading the case studies and looking at the processworksheets in the book that let you follow what they do for their clients There were a few places I felt they exaggerated to make the point the fifty year old who died from a heart attack allegedly because she couldn't relax but overall it was a fun read I only gave it three stars because it was pretty basic stuff eat right sleep well find a purpose larger than yourself etc and didn't bring a ton of new things to the table But still worth the uick read If you're in a huge hurry scan the bullet points at the end of each chapter and use the worksheets in the back
