- Make sure to set your mind on the work that is before you. Discipline yourself so that you don’t get side tracked and accomplish what needs to get done.
- Be intentional about getting up and moving around every once in a while. Getting exercise helps you have more energy to go about your day.
- Make sure you are on top of your business. Know what is going on in your field, what others are doing, and not being afraid to borrow good ideas.
- After losing over 100lbs Chris has more sustained energy throughout the day.
