Are You Fully Charged?: The 3 Keys to Energizing Your Work and Life
Tom Rath, San Francisco: Silicon Guild (2015)
“You have a limited number of days to make a difference. This is one of the few certainties that everyone shares. It can also be an extraordinary motivational force. Embrace the fact that you need to infuse a lot of good into this world while you can. You have the opportunity to decide how you spend your time. Use this knowledge to stay focused on doing what’s most important every day.
If you don’t prioritize what’s most important today, you may later find yourself wishing you had spent more time with your spouse or children. You may regret that you didn’t pursue an idea you had many years ago. Fortunately, you do have time to add a positive charge to the world today.
Start with work that creates meaning. Invest in each interaction to strengthen your relationships. Make sure you have the energy you need to be your best. Doing these three things, in combination, is the definition of being fully charged and adding a positive charge to those around you.”
