This is the 21st podcast for the power sector corporate strategy study we will soon release as part of our Executive Program.

Many readers have written in asking how we manage the fatigue of running such an intense study while managing all the numerous Firmsconsulting initiatives.

In this podcast I briefly touch on the practical tools I use to manage my time, set priorities and manage my diary to ensure I keep the trains running on time.

I also discuss the myth of loving what you do. While that is important, it does not insulate one from the trauma of dealing with abrasive situations. I manage this in a different way.

Finally, I discuss the problem with reading magazines and articles on learning how to de-stress. Best practice, as you will learn, is not going to work for you.
