Energy Spendthrift

4/28/07

The Compulsive Energy Spendthrift

Consider spending your energy the way you spend your money. Compare the value of what you receive with the cost of what you give in exchange for it.

If you can’t see the value, don’t make the expenditure.

How often we make a great effort (consume a lot of energy) to achieve a goal of inconsequential value.

Think of the times we don’t recall a name or a place or other fact and find ourselves thinking of little else, even though the recollection is not important. If that effort were money, it would be a wasted asset. Or, even if we successfully retrieve the memory, it is at an exorbitant price of energy.

We constantly waste energy, to the detriment of our health and well-being.

Don’t be a “compulsive energy spendthrift”.
