MANAGE YOUR ENERGY Instead of Your Time to Actually Be More Productive w/ Simon Ong
Show Notes

Welcome to episode 41 of the Mindful & Driven podcast! It's all about how to not lose sight of what really matters whilst chasing your dreams.

Episode 41’s guest is Simon Ong. He is a life coach and business strategist. Simon’s focus is on energy and how you can use it to lead you to the right way in achieving your goals and what really matters to you. He has won many awards for his coaching as one of the most sought-after coaches in the world. 

He started his career in investment banking but realized that what he was doing on the side had so much power and could change so many people’s lives. In order to help him in this mission,  he is releasing his new book called ‘Energize’ which would be released in early April. It might be already out by the time you are listening to this podcast. I’ve had an early copy myself and I can vouch for how amazing his insights are and how much I’ve enjoyed the way he tells stories. 

Topics discussed in this episode:
Why you should manage your energy instead of your time. How to make the most out of your workdays. How to better manage your time. Manage your energy instead of your time. How to increase your energy levels. Your energy influences your productivity and presence with others. Why exercise helps you be more productive. It's better to manage your energy than your time.
