Energy management

November 25, 2022

Personal time management is an area dominated by freelancers. As independent professionals, we are so highly motivated (and financially incentivized) to increase productivity that we come up with many inventive ways to do so.

Here’s just another example. Strawberry Nevill’s article How to Take Charge of Your Time in 4 Steps thinks of time in personal-energy units: “Most of us think of our workday in terms of time. But our raw material isn’t time, it’s energy.”

The author points out that once we think of our work in terms of energy, rather than time, we shift our focus to energy preservation and distribution rather than working a certain amount of time. It then leads to more realistic time estimates and improved overall balance.
