The Energy Clock with Molly Fletcher
“This book really came about because when I was an agent, what I saw the best athletes and coaches do was they looked at their lives through the lens of energy. And then when I transitioned to the business world, what I found was business people look at their lives through the lens of their calendar. And it was so fascinating to me, because the best athletes in the world, as you know, make sure that they have the energy for the games, the moments, the practices, and the best of the best, don’t get bogged down and distracted by all the other things that come at them consistently. But then when I got to the business one I was like, This is so fascinating. I mean, business people accept meetings, they go to these coffees, lunches packed up or whatever and so often, it’s really not laddering up to maybe the thing in their life that in fact matters most the moment in the day and the week, the people that matter most and so there was sort of that lens at some level. And then really the book was a bit of a result of mistakes that I was making in my own life relative to managing my own energy.
I’ll tell this brief story I was beginning to speak and I think I’d given like a keynote and like Miami and then I went to Vegas and then Vegas to Boston, and then I had a meeting in Miami and flew my mom down from Michigan to help with our girls who were six and seven, I think at the time and I remember boarding a plane and I was really exhausted. And I remember thinking “Man, I am smoked and I gotta I’ve got to step out on a stage in front of 1000 people and speak on performance, and I don’t have any energy.” So long story short, that was when I really pulled back and started to look at my own schedule through the lens of energy and create a system by which I could ensure I had that kind of energy that I needed for the moments that matter most. And I think, you know, so often in life books, thoughts, ideas often stem from us as individuals, leaning into it ourselves. And then testing it, seeing the benefits, and then saying, hey, I want to I want to share this with others in case it helps them. So to get to your question, one of the things that we teach in our energy training, and it’s in the book, etc, is an energy audit. And so to me, the first step is getting really clear on what gives you energy.
What are the things that give you energy? And what are the things that drain your energy, and what are the neutrals? And we want to maximize the moments that give us energy, we want to make sure we have those in our days consistently. We want to minimize, delegate, and remove the drainers. And then we want to be as efficient as we possibly can with the neutrals. And so the audit, which we can send and you can put in the show notes, if you want if it would help people is a way for people to start to create the kind of alignment that you need to meet balance. Actually, Eric is bullshit. I mean, I just don’t think there is such a thing. And the world that we live in today, it’s about alignment, it’s about getting clear on your deepest values on the people in your life who matter most and then getting really clear on that. And then living into that through alignment, rather than at some level of balance. Because balance to me as I mean, I was pretty out of balance when I was building my career early on. And then as you have more demand and your life as you age, you have to train to create the kind of alignment that you need to perform at your best and to live into the people in the values that matter most to you.”
