about

We live in a world where the demands we face as professionals, parents and students has grown exponentially, yet the amount of hours in a day has stayed constant. Many people turn to time-management strategies to keep up with the growing to-do list. But time is finite, and it’s outside of our control.

Energy management, on the other hand, is within our control. It’s about striking a balance between moments of high performance and periods of renewal. Getting enough rest and recovery, leveraging our stressors and enjoying the presence of our loved ones are positive actions connected to energy management. In Thriving in a 24-7 World, author and high performance expert Peter Jensen shows you how to manage your energy to not only perform better but also live a healthier and happier life.


Jensen tells the fictional story of sixty-eight-year-old sports psychologist Ken Coghill and how he introduces the world of energy management to an elite basketball team, high performers at an IT firm and callers to his weekly radio show. Thriving in a 24-7 World imparts critical skills that lead to resiliency and excellence in environments where pressure and the need for high performance are equally present. Based on considerable research, Jensen offers guidelines to leading more enjoyable, less stressful lives without sacrificing achievement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Performance simplified!! Really enjoyed the book. Very practical performance coaching interventions for regular people, execs, athletes. The format of the story reminded me of Pat Lencioni's "5 Dysfunctions of Teams". Super engaging read, but Peter's book had more meat and was more enjoyable for me likely because it dealt with performance coaching. Also enjoyed how Peter tied in the research of contemporary researchers and authors. Amy Cuddy's "Presence" is my next read so nice to see Peter give Amy some juice in his book. Loved the chapters with the Women's National Team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read Woven throughout the engaging story are practical methods for energy management which enable all readers to respond to pressure in a productive way. Learning how to be a thermostat rather than a thermometer is a reinforcing and easily applied metaphor. As with Peter Jensen's previous books, Thriving in a 24-7 World is a definite keeper on my book shelf!
