I am starting to think about the idea of managing my energy as at least as important as the notion of managing my time.  There will always be too much to do.  Embrace this first.  Once you come to terms with this, determine what you really want to do…how do you want your life to look?  Then focus on what you know recharges your batteries and be vigilant about that.  Merciless in fact. 

I think if I don’t embrace these ideas and really start to work them, I will be less effective day to day and may wake up in 30 years and say "Dear God, where has the time gone?" and the only one I will have to blame is myself.
