18 Unusual Habits That Boost Your Energy More Than Coffee

18 Unusual Habits That Boost Your Energy More Than Coffee | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it

http://snip.ly/lIWd

To understand unique and healthy ways to consistently and quickly boost energy daily, I asked dynamic entrepreneurs to spill their best-kept secrets.


"Being an entrepreneur is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death.”

These words from Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and Tesla, describe a mentality many founders can relate to as they go through the day-to-day grind of running a startup. Like Musk, entrepreneurs face huge ups and downs every single day, sometimes in the same moment. Having energy to confront those challenges is the essential ingredient to success.

To understand unique and healthy ways to consistently and quickly boost energy daily, I interviewed the country’s top ambitious young entrepreneurs, honorees of the Empact Showcase, who work tirelessly, day and night, to turn their visions into reality. Their responses will surprise you! Each response includes links to research and resources so you can incorporate the habit into your life if it’s right for you.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

I never drink coffee, I get too wired. I use several of the ideas described here, some adapted to what I know and who I am. Doing such things is very important to keep yourself going in a balanced way, it helps with the stress of 'living on the edge' while being an entrepreneur and stretching yourself too much - until you snap! Very important.

Far too many business owners and managers struggle with the concept of finding balance in their lives, but if they were more aware of why balance is so important, they would be more inclined to make changes that would be very beneficial for their businesses.


Businesses survive and thrive when quality decisions are consistently made, however where business owners and managers do not have good balance, their decision making ability can be severely compromised.


This excellent article, explains the importance of having a balanced life if you need to consistently make quality decisions, and in the dimensions of physical, mental and spiritual elements it offers nine tips to help anyone struggling to find the necessary balance.

Tim Ferriss on personal mantras, work-life separation and the future of flexible careers

Tim Ferriss on personal mantras, work-life separation and the future of flexible careers | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it
Tim Ferris, author of The 4-Hour Workweek, weighs in on work-life balance, dependance on technology and the future of the career landscape.

There's no shortage of motivational career and lifestyle advice out there, but one of the most ubiquitous presences in the space over the past few years is surely Timothy Ferriss, author of the acclaimed 4-Hour book series and the de facto face of a concept (and movement) aptly dubbed "Lifestyle Design."

For all intents and purposes, Lifestyle Design is a more modern incarnation of the "American Dream" — but with a focus on leading a happy, healthy and fulfilling life instead of working yourself into the grave. Much of the advice found in Ferriss' hugely successful published work provides glimpses into the future of the career landscape, as well as an underlying message of "you do you" that resonates with millennials and established business professionals alike. The bottom line: Your life is yours; don't let the status quo dictate how you live it.

We caught up with Ferriss to discuss his predictions for the future of the career industry and some of the most rewarding aspects of his work. Check out the full Q&A below.
