Juice is a term used by sports commentators to describe the energy that a player brings to the game.

If they’re constantly active and hustling, they are said to have a lot of juice.

I recently heard a particular basketball commentator say, “If you’re juiceless, you’re useless.”

Wow, that’s harsh.

But perhaps it’s also true and perhaps the application applies beyond the court.

People with energy and enthusiasm are wonderful to work with.

They make work more exciting and positive.

They help to raise the pulse of the people around them.

And, frankly, they get more done.

Conversely, there are few things worse than working with someone who’s get up and go has got up and left.

It’s dour and draining.

It’s tiresome.

The days seem to drag and productivity drops.

How are your juice levels?

Are you up and about?

Are you looking for opportunities to add value to the energy levels of your team?

Do you bounce into Mondays with pep and enthusiasm?

I hope so.

Because if you’re juiceless, you’re useless.
