INC. THIS MORNING
 
 
Energy hacking

Good morning,

When it comes to the skills that are necessary for success, time management invariably lands at the top of the list. But what if managing your time isn’t the most important thing? What if, instead, you focused on managing your energy?

That’s what Apple CEO Tim Cook does, starting each day at 3:45 a.m. (and landing back in bed at 8:45 p.m. sharp). Early risers aren’t hard to come by in the world of business and entrepreneurship, but Cook’s approach centers less on the timing of his routines, and more on the way that he feels. By managing his energy, he’s able to tackle his responsibilities with the focus and sense of dedication that they truly demand. 

Admittedly, waking up before the sunrise isn’t manageable for everyone—but this productivity-oriented mindset shift is something that all entrepreneurs can learn from. Read on for more ways you can better manage your time by hacking your energy.
