One of my favorite authors and thinkers is Tony Schwartz.  Tony is the CEO and founder of The Energy Project, a consulting firm that helps individuals and organizations solve intractable problems and add more value in the world by widening their world view.

Tony is the author of several books but he is perhaps best known for The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal

I want to share with you one of Tony’s deceptively simple diagrams that illustrates my personal struggle with getting everything done I want to get done – without becoming a danger to myself and others.  This diagram helped inform my thinking about The Rhythm of Our Business and embracing the natural seasonality of the real estate market to ensure we are prepared to seize every opportunity that presents itself, while preserving our health and personal well-being. 

The Rhythm of our Business, and Tony’s diagram below, are both about taking care of the goose that lays the golden eggs.  (That’s you!)

The goal is to spend as much time as possible on the right side of the diagram, alternating between the Performance and Recovery zones.  We find ourselves on the left side of the diagram when we strive to stay in the performance zone at the expense of recovery.  My goal is to be in the performance zone whenever it makes sense, and to spend as much time as possible in recovery before I find myself in the survival or burnout zones

 I hope you find as much value in this simple diagram as I have over the years. 

As always – here’s to the good life!
