Day by day we have a certain amount of energy that allows us to do all our activities, from the first moment you wake up until the last second when you fall asleep at night.
Some of these activities add energy such as eating healthily, exercising regularly, and working on things you enjoy doing.
But there are also the thieves of your energy, those situations or people who are often unexpected and who consume time and energy from you.
The Dalai Lama is credited with the following decalogue, I think these points deserve a reflection. And while you can see it at a broader level than this text, I encourage you to read it by relating it to your work or business and how it can help you to change your thinking and behavior to be a better businessman or businesswoman.
1. Let people who only complain go.
Some people seem to be unable to avoid complaining about almost anyone or any situation. They tell us their problems with stories, judgments, and sentences. Everyone is against them and no one understands them. For them, we are a trash can which they throw their stuff, try that they don’t use your mind for that.
2. Pay your bills on time.
Living worried takes out energy and time. Be proactive and disciplined with your payments. In the same way, charge who owes you, or if it is impossible to recover it, you can make the decision to let it go.
3. Keep your promises.
It is better to say NO on time than to commit to doing something that you are not going to do or will reluctantly do.
Yo not only look bad, but you are wasting your energy.
If you got to compromise without being sure, mentalize yourself to do it in the best way you can. If you have to do it anyway, you spend less time and energy doing it with the right mindset.
Of course, you have the right to change your mind, renegotiate and apologize. You can compensate by offering another alternative.
4. Eliminate as much as possible and delegate those tasks that you prefer not to do.
As entrepreneurs, we often think that we are the ones who have to do the job. Discuss if you can delegate some activities to do something in which you are an expert and you can be more productive. This way, you spend more energy on activities you enjoy.
5. Permit yourself to rest.
You’re a workaholic, fine. But do not neglect moments of rest when you need it. Besides resting the body, the mind thinks better and is more creative when it is not trying to juggle daily problems. Of course, if you have to act and work, you have to take advantage of the opportunity moment.
6. Throw, lift and organize.
It is said that nothing spends more energy than the clutter and accumulation of things you no longer need. It’s about not spending your energy looking for things that should be at hand for your work.
7. Give priority to your health.
This is easy to understand, if you are not healthy, how do you expect to perform in your business? The machinery of your body must be ready to give its maximum. Eat well, exercise, rest, and take measures so that stress does not affect you too much.
8. Face the toxic situations you are tolerating.
As far as possible, get out of those negative situations that steal your energy. Whether it’s a client, a boss, or a coworker. Value if those bad moments are justified. Again, it is about dedicating your energy to positive actions for you. Seek help from your partner, a friend, a group or a professional.
This is not resigning, but resisting and fighting something you can not change takes away an enormous amount of energy.
You can not avoid the pain, however, you can do it with the suffering. Forgiving is a way to let go a situation that is hurting you and subtracting energy that could well lead you to something better for you.
