1st September 2003 - The Power of Full Engagement

Today I finished reading "The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal" by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz. This is an excellent book about how to make the mort out of ones personal potential through the optimal use of energy. According to Loehr and Schwartz, the key to establishing meaning and joy in personal and work life lies in being physical energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused and spiritually aligned. If one succeeds in reaching this point, one can be fully engaged when needed.

Throughout the book, there are a number of case stories where different people reach a fully engaged level by applying the tools offered by the book; this approach allows the reader to see how different situations can be altered, this pragmatic approach serves the purpose much better than just a theoretic framework. In general the book is very good reading and highly recommended reading; it offers concrete advice to reaching a state where energy can be used with high impact and recharged, as well as inspires one to identify and focus on the things that matter in life.

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?
