Q: How do I remain low stressed and highly productive in my career?
Welcome to Episode #18 of Engineering Career TV. The topic for this episode is How to remain low stressed and highly productive in your engineering career.
I will spend most of the Engineering Career TV episodes answering questions that have been submitted from engineers around the world on how to rapidly advance their careers and live the lives they want to live.

Let’s jump into today’s topic: How to remain low stressed and highly productive in your engineering career, which is the third in a series of book reviews. In this book review I am covering Hal Elrod’s book The Miracle Morning.
- SAVERS stands for Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing or writing. Elrod’s philosophy is that if you do all of these very important things first thing in the morning, you will transform your life for the better.
- The S stands for Silence, which can be achieved by just sitting in silence for a few minutes, every morning before you start your day.
- The A is for Affirmations. Consider saying some affirmations, which are positive sayings or quotes that you say to yourself, to put yourself in a positive state of mind.
- V is for Visualization, which is just taking a few minutes to visualize where you want to be in your career and life.
- E is for Exercise. Do ten minutes of exercise in the morning.
- The R is for Reading. If you read ten minutes a day, it equates to something along the lines of 18 books per year.
- The S is for Scribing or writing. Hal recommends journaling, or maybe writing down some goals or reflections, or any kind of writing that you want to do every morning.
