Forget Time Management. Energy and Attention is where it’s at.

This is a book for those who want to manage their energy and attention, not simply try to fill every time “block” in their lives.

It’s a book about the art of living in the now for managers. A book about focusing on your behaviours in the now. And in doing so building great teams that have positive, healthy and professional cultures. Sort of like baking “well being” in at the start.

I also share ideas on where to focus your limited energy and attention whilst at work.

We cover painting a picture of who you want to become, setting goals as targets, but using them to instil positive routines and habits, and some common activities I believe managers should focus on.

Time doesn’t respond well to being managed. We have limited energy and attention. Where do you want to focus it?
