Step Up to the Energy Bar

Did you pop out of bed raring to go this morning and somehow become more energized through your human interactions, a buzz that you’ll maintain deep into the night? Well, there’s a chance someone is either a little jealous or a little irritated by that. Who knows? That person could be in same room with you right now. The New Yorker’s Nick Paumgarten on Energy, and How to Get It. “Entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, politicians: it can seem that energy, more than talent or luck, results in extraordinary outcomes. Why do some people have it and others not? What does one have to do to get more? Energy is both biochemical and psychophysical, vaguely delineated, widely misunderstood, elusive as grace.” (If my experience on the internet is any indicator, that’s really elusive.)
