The other day I had what most people would call a ‘full’ day; a calendar full of meetings without breaks, plenty of other work to do, and a target of finishing early so that I could spend some quality time with family & friends.
I decided to attack the whole day with intensity.
All areas – both work, and personal.
What do I mean? How do you ‘attack’ a personal dinner with intensity?
Well, you can.
First, of course, I woke up early, did all of my morning training, and then dove into the day.
Doing this ‘with intensity’ doesn’t mean that I was aggressively yelling at people.
But later, when everything was all done, and it was time to stop working, disengage, switch over, and have fun, I did that with the same level of intensity. A different frequency and type of energy in the activity, but the same intensity with regards to what I was doing at that moment.
I made it a strong point not to allow one to bleed into the other.
And guess what?
Later that night, I went to bed with intensity as well.
If you need to rest, you need to rest.
So then just get your a** into bed, and don’t let anything else get in the way.
