The Charge Book
Inside this Book – A Charged Life is a very different kind of life from the one most people lead. That’s not because it’s unattainable, but rather because most people rarely think about (or strategically manage) their longterm energy and engagement in life— what we’ll call their “charge level.” They don’t think of their lives this way, because most are simply trying to muster up enough energy to get through their busy, exhausting days. They’re puttering along from one week to the next, just trying to make it to the weekend, when they can collapse on the couch or do something they really want to do. What they don’t often understand is that the busyness of our lives has a funny way of creating a myopic vision of what’s real or possible. When you can’t see past your own day planner, it’s hard to see the cumulative reality of who you have become and where you are headed. Sometimes it’s helpful just to stop amid all our craziness, poke our heads above our busywork and computer screens, and ask ourselves about the overall feel and quality of our lives. We should gauge our own charge levels, asking just how excited we really feel about our current reality and our future.
