Hi Vince….interesting post…lately I’ve started asking my executive coaching clients who are in a funk about what they are doing in their lives that is generating energy as opposed to consuming it. I’m finding that a lot of them are answering ‘nothing’. They are consumed by their jobs and typically the non-creative, reactive parts of their job. The fire-fighting leaves them with no energy to do any of the activities in their lives that generate energy. They have stopped exercising, spending time in nature, painting, writing for fun, wood-working, reading for enjoyment, socializing, volunteering etc etc. They talk about how they will get back into those things when things slow down….oh really….when will that be? When you finally completely run out of energy and your body takes you out? People need to invest in themselves by doing things that generate energy as well as consuming it and get themselves out of those funks and step up their leadership accountabilities.
