How you Manage Your Energy? If you have Energy you are Unstoppable!

by Mohsin Rasool 17 replies
Dear Warriors,

Just another day I was having conversation with my buddy about the life of an internet marketer.

I experienced this, that i had many things in my todo list, which needed to be completed,
but the day i tried to manage my energy, i cannot stop myself doing great things:

how one can manage the energy?
Well this is the question I ask you too!
How you do this?

Here is what I have been doing and i suggest the same at my recent blog post
at: Forget about todo list, Manage Your Energy | Mohsin Rasool

1. Stop working in the nights. Yes you can have few days in your month to break
this rule, and do stuff for whole night, as we are used to work on, but this should
not be your lifetime routine...get to work in the day light!!!!

2. Do some exercise everyday....i am talking about morning walk,jogging, or light exercise,
to give your plenty of Energy and Oxygen!

3. Take good food and plenty of water... this is only possible when you work on days..
during night..damn cola abuse our body in night shift.

4. Work in specific time blocks and take short breaks.

5. Work on ONE thing at a time..and do not leave it until you complete it..
you can do this only..if you have plenty of energy in your body, and focus..
which you really can get if you have followed, #1,and #2..yeah exercise and enough sleep!

That is it for now...
I was thinking to expand my Blog post which I referred above..so decided to ask
and post here... now would you please share few tips in this regard..how you make your
day full of energy and feelings of doing something great...how you make and keep yourself
fit while you are on your own in your own internet business?

Best Regards,
Mohsin

    I second the exercise point - exercising every day really helps me clear my brain out for some reason.

    The hard part is making all of your points a habit.

    Eat fruit for breakfast. They are filled
    with fluids and charge you up for the
    whole day.

    The first meal sets the tone for
    the rest of the day. If you start the
    day off a bad meal-then you're setting
    the whole day to be as bad.

    I have found out that exercising is REALLY important. I have kept track of my productivity over the last few months, and on the days when I got at least 30-60 minutes of exercise I found that I had so much more energy to do things and it also helps to put you in a more positive frame of mind.

    Another thing to note is to have a fairly light mid-day (2nd meal) that is not heavy on carbs. If you eat something heavy then, you go through this carb-induced haze afterwards that makes it a little hard to really focus on things. If you end up feeling tired in the afternoon, it does not hurt at all to either meditate or take a short nap to refresh yourself. You'll be amazed at how much more productive the rest of your day will be by doing that!

    1. You will definitely need adequate sleep.
    2. Exercise - get out your house; don't be holed up in your so called lab. It's killing you.
    3. Stay positive - be enthusiastic with your online business. If you're mentally frustrated, that alone will disrupt your energy flow.
    4. Have a healthy dietary regime.
    5. Make sure you still have your social life.

    That's all for now

    I wouldn't recommend fasting if you're going to be concentrating on something that requires brain and mental power... Meditation is fine though, it actually works really well in helping you focus.

    Solid sleep and exercise are definitely prerequisites, and meditation is the icing on the cake that really supercharges your focus and productivity.

    Here's another tip of mine.
    Work in a small block of time - around 25-30minutes. Rest a while then get back to working for another block.

    This maintains your productivity throughout the day.

      Tyler it is great habit to develop...but In my experience 30minutes are not that much to build
      the momentum. I go for 45min or sometime 90min... as it brings me intense focus..and also it is like parabolic graph...you stat..then your focus and concentration keep growing..you hit the peak..and then it is downward...in my experience in 30 minutes just hit the peak..now you should also enjoy the downward drive..as your mind has really got into the task in hand..it is easy to follow next 15-30 minutes. And i get done more in the last 15 minutes,
      than the starting 15 minutes!

      Again thanks for the input.
      Regards,
      Mohsin

    Tyler, I have read that many big-name internet marketers do this, and it's a very efficient way of working that keeps you on task and minimizes distraction.

    This thread is a GREAT reminder and this is a true "mind warrior" type of thread. (I don't know why it's not in mind warrior section, oh well.)

    Exercise. Exercise is one of the smartest things you can do for your energy? Especially if you go for a walk or a run outside first thing in the morning.

    Exercise pumps new oxygen into your brain which will make your brain more effective for the whole day. This alone can make a huge different in your energy levels.

    Breakfast. Starting off the day with a healthy breakfast is huge. It sets a precedent for what you will eat for the rest of the day. Plus, to an extent, "you are what you eat."

    Want to have a cookie and some sugary cereal for breakfast? Fine, you will perform more like a fat unfocused person throughout the day than a Lance Armstrong. lol.

    Preparing your mind I think the single most important and powerful thing you can do is to understand how your brain works and how to control your feelings.

    Learn to control your certainties and uncertainties and how to change them.

    For example, if you are supposed to be writing articles to get traffic to your site, but you are unsure about:
    "whats the best type of article"
    "what are the best article sites"
    "I don't know if I can get traffic with articles"
    "traffic is hard"
    "I can never get enough traffic"

    These beliefs and doubts will #%(*&%#% kill you.

    Uncertainty and doubt I think is a more common killer of warriors than laziness (I think for the most part laziness is a myth and the main problem is doubt).

    You need to have the certainty that you CAN get traffic and you CAN do what you need to do to get the money you believe you need for your lifestyle.

    This needs to be the same certainty in your body that the sun will rise tomorrow.

    You need to feel it. You need to believe it. If you don't have the feeling, but instead you have the feeling of doubt, the feeling of "I can't get traffic" and "deeaamn I can't convert" ... then you will keep failing.

    What you are expecting to happen will probably happen, because that is what you are looking for. The tide comes in every day and it brings in weeds from the sea every single day. But not everyone is looking for weeds and they don't notice them.

    Control your expectations of the future, and you can pretty much control the chemicals that your brain will release into your body and you can feel good pretty much whenever you want to.

    Of course your expectations will not necessarily change reality, but your expectations will make you feel differently and you WILL act differently based on the feeling that you have.

    You need to be able to imagine and feel and experience your success before it happens. Most people who can't do this never experience it in real life.

    Thanks for reading I know that was long, but I hope it was very helpful and thought provoking. You must get rid of that doubt. Must, must, must must must. lol
