Sample text

We see many of these symptoms in the executives with whom we work. , a midlevel manager at a large consumer company, came to us with one of the most common performance barriers that we see. In the mornings, he was full of energy, and he charged through his obligations at high intensity. He estimated that he got more than 70 percent of his day's work done before lunch. By early afternoon, however, his energy flagged considerably, and with it his enthusiasm and his focus. By the time he got home, he felt completely wiped out and complained that he had nothing left to give.

When he was in the office, he usually consumed lunch at his desk, and while he tried hard to limit himself to a sandwich and a salad, he frequently also had a large bowl of frozen yogurt for dessert. When he was traveling, he often just grabbed a hamburger and fries for lunch, or a couple of slices of pizza on the run. M. on most days, his energy flagging badly, Roger often treated himself to a handful of cookies, which always seemed to be around the office. Over the course of a day his energy spiked and crashed, depending on how long he had gone without eating and what sort of sugary snacks he ate.

On the nights he entertained clients, Roger acknowledged that he often had more to drink. Dinners started and ended later, and the wine usually flowed freely. Between a cocktail reception and a long dinner, it wasn't uncommon to consume three or four glasses of wine in the course of an evening. Not only did that add several hundred empty calories to his diet, it also frequently left him feeling groggy the next morning. Without caffeine, Roger would have had a hard time getting through his days.
