At the end of every weekday, I go through and color-code my calendar from the day that just finished. Green = Energy Creating Yellow = Neutral Red = Energy Draining. I don’t spend too much time thinking about which bucket each item fell into—I try to trust my gut.
I like this idea of color coding the calendar to show what gives you energy vs. what drains your energy. It could be a great way to work on balancing things out. I’m not sure I’ll do it, but I’ll keep it in mind.
