Time management is energy management



Sometimes you read something and it makes something else suddenly become clear and fall into place. The following passage is from an article on time management, but explains exactly how we should consider energy management for pacing.
For years, I thought time management was about time. So when I planned how to spend my time, I would look at my calendar and book up the vacant hours.
Those plans worked on paper–but I couldn’t follow through in real life. Because time management isn’t just about time: it’s also about energy. 
These days, I’m paying attention to not only how much time events take up on my calendar, but how much–and what type of–energy they demand from me. I’m asking myself, how does this event affect me? Do I have the time I need to recharge? Can I maintain this schedule? If I can, will I even enjoy it?
