In this backstage interview from Leadercast Women 2018, Molly Fletcher—speaker, author and founder of The Molly Fletcher Company—explains why leaders must figure out who and what are worth their energy.

“We have to manage our energy sometimes more than our time,” shares Molly. “For leaders, figuring out who are you going to invest your energy into is an incredibly important thing because we have a finite amount of time, but we have an enormous amount of energy, but we've got to decide who we want to give it to.”

Watch the video to learn more from Molly about knowing where to invest your energy.

We have to manage our energy sometimes more than our time. And I think we live in a world where we're obsessed with time. It's on our watches, it's our phones. We love to say that we're really busy. It's like a badge of honor to say that. How are you? I'm busy. That's what we hear so much.

And so, we have to decide who we're going to give our energy to and who are we not. As an agent, no question. I had to get really clear on what athletes to chase, what were sort of worth the chase, what were sometimes better than the problems maybe that came with it. Then you could invest in those relationships effectively and manage the expectations effectively.

We have to change the narrative that we tell ourselves. If you're going after baseball players, the narrative is this is going to be eight years before I make any money. And by the way, 50 percent of first round guys even make it to the big leagues.

So for leaders, figuring out who are you going to invest your energy into is an incredibly important thing because we have a finite amount of time, but we have an enormous amount of energy, but we've got to decide who we want to give it to.
