I recently delivered talks to two separate groups, one focused on attention-getting 30-second introductions and the second was on personal branding.

We live in exponential times…something I call Globalization 3.0. The rate at which technology impacts our lives is increasing dramatically and individuals have access to transportation methods that make global travel easy.

So if your daily routine has you feeling stressed, tired, as though you are being pulled in too many directions, or unhappy in your career…what can you do to maximize your energy and re-engage with the activities you deem meaningful? Here are two resources that will deliver results.
Buy a copy of Sink, Float, or Swim by Tignum founders Scott Peltin and Jogi Rippel. Tignum teaches its clients how to integrate Mindset, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery strategies to create powerful habits that will restore high levels of energy, resilience, and brain performance. As the Tignum best practices become habit, you’ll feel better, be more productive, become a better leader, and improve your value to your team, your organization, and to your brand.
THE ENERGY PROJECT
Another great resource to consider is The Energy Project. On CEO Tony Schwartz’s webpage, you can take a complimentary assessment that will gauge you on whether or not you are working at peak performance. The 20-question assessment determines how you’re managing four sources of energy: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The corresponding report and tips page is very helpful.
