I was invited by Xero, a cloud-based accounting software company, to be their global keynote speaker for their annual Xerocon event. Subsequently, I gave keynotes in San Francisco and Brisbane, Australia, titled “Conscious Accounting”.
The keynote was based on the premise that we only have a finite amount of energy each day but most people never evaluate who and what they should invest that finite amount of energy in. I encouraged the 3,000 people from the accounting industry I spoke to across both events to treat energy the same way they treated money.
When it comes to money, I said, you have a system of accounting in place. Why? Because you only have so much money. It’s a finite resource. You should treat energy the same way as well and create a system to manage it, reallocate it and wisely invest it. For this we need to evaluate who and what is deserving of our energy.
Life is a manifestation of where we invest our energy. Since you only have so much of it each day, wisely discriminate who and what is deserving of it and then invest your finite amount of energy into them. The result is you manifest the life you want.
