Hi all,

I have a question. It relates to the following from a book I was thinking of buying.

It is our ability to manage energy, not time, that determines our effectiveness at work and health and happiness in our lives.
Pretty much common sense. If anyone has a zen perspective on this, please share your thoughts. I'm rushing off to work as I write this. I know from Uchiyama Roshi's book that although zen is not meant to be used for purposes other discovering truth and "ending suffering", but something in the back of my mind gives me a hunch that energy in practice as well managing energy when doing tasks are very much connected.



ps. i have difficulty managing energy i put into general life, but the more i practice, slowly everything is starting to open up and become clearer.
