Give your energy demands and those of your team a cleanup. Free up some random access memory (aka RAM). Start engaging everything with all of your might, but to do this, we’ll have to eliminate the complexity that comes with uncertainty and procrastination. We have super creative minds – they’re amazing and beautiful. Often, though, we overcomplicate simple “yes” and “no” answers. Ask yourself. “Can I get my heart completely on board with this?” If not, ask, “Why not?” If that why not is true and proves misalignment with your goals, then it’s an easy “no.”
In our workplaces, most would appreciate an employee or staff member who just carries out and obeys commands, right? However, one of the best questions anyone can ask a manager, employer or leader is, “Why are we doing this?” Too often, a WHY question is seen as a threat and a retort is given without really answering and instilling the same belief and insight from the leaders’ heart into those following.
Great leaders, encourage WHY questions. This is quickest and surest way to inspire enthusiasm in your team and garner their conviction!
This will free your teams’ RAM by enabling them to put their all into what it is you’re asking of them. Of course, this demands a thorough understanding and belief of the WHY ourselves. When we don’t make time to distill and instill the reason – our WHY – we miss the truest nugget of gold any leader really possesses. Clear utterance of our WHY demands the hard work of thought and clarity.
Leaders who adopt the Energy Equation and put all their might into their work of instilling the WHY, will in turn enable their followers to throw all their heart and might into achieving the goal! Free up RAM by dumping what you’re half-heartedly believing in; invest all your energies into those things in which you believe whole-heartedly in.

P.S. Regarding stray thoughts and ideas, have a standard operating procedure for getting them off your mind so you can stay focused. I have this practice of texting myself great ideas and going back through at the end of the week to see if anything stuck, resonates or is something I should apply or follow-up on. Text, email, write, chicken-scratch, Evernote, or voice-record it so that you can data-dump and keep RAM freed up. Then, have a routine time to reflect and journal. Your mind will understand, and will begin loving your habit and ease up on you. When your mind knows you will make the time to listen to it, it will settle down a little bit for you. Have this routine so that you’re less stressed and can attack what you’re working on with everything you’ve got!

Bouncing & Pedaling Contribute to Energized Culture
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Team members bounce and pedal at work contributing to the thriving culture and accelerated growth of TwelveStone Health Partners, a premier provider of post-acute chronic care services based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Large fitness balls are more than decoration. They’ve replaced several cubicle chairs of the pharmacy’s 150-person staff. Kerstyn M., a registered dietician for TwelveStone, reported her workflow, focus and fitness all increased because of the mobility and slight bounce she enjoys balancing on her fitness ball.
Jennifer B. works in the billing department of TwelveStone and enriches her day with an “Under Desk Elliptical” from FitDesk, a North Carolina company. Jennifer has two sons and staying strong to fully engage work and then go home with energy for them is important to her.

She said moving and investing in her health significantly impacts how she feels about her contribution at work and in life.
Tim Hooper, founder of Time4Energy, also based in Murfreesboro, has aligned with TwelveStone as they sponsor the national campaign, “Got Energy?” Tim speaks to teams about passionate, abundant and vibrant living and encourages small changes like those exemplified at TwelveStone. “We were made to move; when we move our bodies, we stimulate our minds,” Tim stated. “I was super encouraged by the modern, and wellness-centered philosophy of Twelve Stone when I toured their state-of-the-art facility.”
Tim noted numerous gym bags lying in team members’ offices. He watched staff members give cold, 17-ounze water bottles to visitors and patients. Chief executive officer, Shane Reeves, has labelled these, “living water.” Additionally, Lee Golden, chief pharmacy officer who miraculously fought and is rehabbing from a raging illness, was supplied a height-adjustable standing desk upon his return to TwelveStone.
Shane Reeves leads by example as an avid member of Murfreesboro Athletic Club; further, Reeves and Hooper share a monthly run discussing business. TwelveStone also sponsors a local, annual 5K race paying registration for team members.

“They’re not just hype; they truly encourage and invest in the well-being, fitness and energy of their people,” Tim reflected. “When you truly invest in team members’ wholeness, team members wholly invest into your business!”
Last year, TwelveStone Health Partners made its third evolution since their start as a Murfreesboro drug store in 1980. In 2016, Shane Reeves, launched their vision for national expansion. Just last month, Claritas Capital, a Nashville-based private equity firm, announced they will invest 3.35 million in TwelveStone’s expansion. This sort of investor-confidence is driven by leadership’s clear vision and a cutting-edge business plan; and, just as importantly, an energized, enthusiastic and engaged team of people to carry out that plan and propel the business forward!
Time4Energy, founded in 2013 and owned by Tim Hooper in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, transforms overwhelm, stress and burnout into energized, enthusiastic and engaged living through keynote speaking, workshops and coaching. Tim’s book, “Got Energy?” launched an international campaign partnering with corporations and communities to facilitate passionate, abundant and vibrant living. Website: http://timehooper.com
