’The hardest part is starting it’’. That was the best piece of advice I received before signing up for a course of study in addition to my full-time job. Useful advice at a time when I was reticent about starting a study programme which I hoped would be beneficial to my career, development and intellectual capacity, but had fears about it impacting on my job and ultimately my life.
I love my job and I love working hard at it. Most days it doesn’t feel like work and no two days are the same, bringing variety and change to my life on a weekly basis. I’m an athlete, blogger and motivational speaker. I built my own business from scratch over the last four years, turning an idea into a platform that reaches 1.2 million people globally every month.

Making good energy choices has never been more important. It’s a key high performance trait. If you want to be ready to perform at your best in the moments that matter to you, having good health and a full energy tank on your side can make a difference. You don’t need to be an expert, but if you don’t make helpful choices, you’re probably facing frustration, illness and exhaustion.
If you want to perform at your best no matter what the conditions, prioritising your energy levels will help you maximise your performance, even when life and work gets busy. Here’s some of the Planet K2 team’s top tips on how to prioritise your energy management, avoid energy dips and maximise your performance throughout the day.
It’s Monday morning and I feel like crap. I feel dehydrated, knackered and like I’ve been run over by a bus. So here I am, Monday morning, a demanding week ahead and I’m starting off on the back foot. My energy tank is low and I’m going to need to dig deep if I’m going to simply survive, let alone thrive this week.
