Book Description

Imagine if your best just got better every single day

In Your Best Just Got Better, productivity expert Jason Womack teaches readers that working longer hours doesn't make up for a flawed approach to productivity and performance. Workers need to clarify their habits, build mindset-based strategies, and be proactive. Womack's signature "workplace performance" techniques offer specific strategies to consistently and incrementally improve performance.

Readers will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of workflow and the principles of human performance
  • Arm themselves with the tools and the processes to get more of their work done, on time, with fewer resources, and with less stress

Making your best better won't happen overnight, but learning how to effectively manage just a few critical success factors lead to an effective workday and an overall successful professional career.



Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

How did you spend your time today? What did you do really well? Were you running behind for every meeting? Feeling stressed? Constantly struggling to maintain your focus? If your performance today was your best, then it's time to make your best better.

In Your Best Just Got Better, productivity expert Jason Womack shows you that working longer hours doesn't make up for a flawed approach to productivity and performance. Workers need to clarify their habits, build mindset-based strategies, and be proactive. Womack's signature workplace performance techniques offer specific strategies to consistently and incrementally improve perfor-mance. Learn how to maximize your four most limited resources—time, energy, focus, and productivity tools—to build solid and sustainable workflow habits.

Your Best Just Got Better will help you identify your role in making your best better. Through strategic, iterative change, you can become more effective and efficient at work and in life, making time for the things and the people you love. Womack's powerful advice will show you how to:

  • Set goals and take consistent, calculated action toward achievement
  • Invest 15 minutes every day to make your best better
  • Reflect on your achievements and let them power you towards your next goal
  • Build a strong, productive social network
  • Track your use of your limited resources—time, energy, focus, and your systems and tools
  • Test new practices with the Five Day Experiment

It's time to work smart and think big. But how smart you work depends on how well you know yourself, how clear your goals are, and how well you're using your time. By applying just a little focus to when you're at your best, you can improve how you get things done. Make your best better, and make new things possible today.

From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR YOUR BEST JUST GOT BETTER"Jason Womack teaches you not to settle for your 'best' but to keep the target moving forward. With his help, break through and do better than you ever thought possible, in every area of your personal and professional life."
--Keith Ferrazzi, bestselling author of Never Eat Alone and Who's Got Your Back
"A lot has been written about peak performance--the power of clarity, focusing on positive outcomes, time management, relationships, and mastering self-talk. Jason Womack is one of the very few that pulls it all together in a practical, actionable, and meaningful way. Your Best Just Got Better is a blueprint for finding true balance and meaning, and achieving your best in life and business."
--Matthew Hately, VP Strategy, Macadamian
"After working with Jason for the last ten years to help my teams achieve the next level of success and effectiveness, I was thrilled that his new book offers a unique perspective along with actionable strategies to maximize the impact you can have in your business, your community, and your life."
--Russ Stalters, Director, Information & Data Management, British Petroleum
"Jason's ability to help people focus on the most important things is a game-changer for personal productivity. His ability to help de-clutter our thought processes and work with more intensity and intention is invaluable. Pick up this book. Read it. Digest it. Read it again. It could change your life."
--Tony Wilson, CEO/Founder, Performance Coach to Australia's leading athletes and executives

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, packed with great ideas February 20, 2012
By Dr Rob
Format:Kindle Edition
I must admit to being a long time fan of Jason's approach to life and business. His idea of making "Your best, better" really resonates with me and I was interested to see how he would develop these ideas into this book. I was very impressed how Jason has synthesized all his ideas into a coherent whole, explained clearly and simply in this book. I'd highly recommend this book if you are at all interested in optimizing how you manage your time energy, focus and tools to take your performance in life up to the next level (and beyond).

Jason starts with a simple premise, but one that seems to be lacking in a lot of "time management books" and that is you need to identify your role in making your best better by identifying how you work, think and make things happen. Rather than giving you a list of things you must do, Jason provides pointers and guidance but then encourages you to identify and experiment with things that will work for you. I'd recommend keeping pen & paper close at hand whilst working through this book, ideas and exercises pop up at regular intervals and working through them will really make a difference to the way you approach life and work.

After reading this book and experimenting with the ideas Jason develops in this book I have already made some significant improvements in the way I manage by time and activities during the day and I feel I am certainly making my best better.

Your Best Just Got Better is an incredible book with incredible insights on how to use your time more effectively, and how to change your behaviors to work smarter and think bigger. I shared this book with my 20 year old daughter who is a junior in college. She was experiencing the natural anxiety of "what do I want to do with my life", and "am I picking the right major to get to where I want to go?". The practical insights found in Jason's book regarding the Most Important Things and our Ideal Day were invaluable to her as she regained clarity and confidence in the direction she's headed...and how better use of her time and making small behavior changes will make all the difference. A must read for everyone who wants to be Better at any aspect of their life.

"Your Best Just Got Better" is full of practical ideas, concepts and action steps that, if implemented, will certainly move you forward and make your life and career better. Jason Womack has put his enthusiasm for life and ideas into this motivating and inspiring book.

Your Best Just Got Better is the result of Jason's many years as an executive coach and productivity consultant. This book is very readable and practical. It is not a time management book, but a way to look at many aspects of your life, analyze what is working and most importantly, how you can do things better.

Throughout the book, Jason shares his own experiences, as well as examples of his interactions with his clients and his mentors. In Chapter 7, Jason discusses the question, "Why do I do what I do?," as a way to help the reader clarify their purpose, so they can focus more on that. His answer for himself is: "I share information and activities with leaders so that they have more time and energy for the things they want to do.

In this book, Womack definitely accomplishes this goal. This book will move you forward, if you apply numerous concepts he presents. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Best Definately Got Better!!! February 6, 2013
By Devon B
Format:Hardcover
If you want to improve your life, READ THIS BOOK!!! After reading Jason's book I saw an immediate improvement in my productivity once I began implementing some of his strategies. What started out as a goal to increase my productivity at work, has actaully spilled over and transformed my personal life as well. Because of the suggestions laid out in the book, I found that I was getting alot more done in a shorter amount of time leaving me with more personal time to do the things I enjoy. The MIT's and 15 block of time, have really been two very helpful tools in increasing my productivity. My thought process of how to attack the tasks for the day, week and months have completely changed. I am more efficient than ever at work, less stressed and feel more satisfaction after a day of work. And the added benefit is that as my productivity increased, so did my time with my family and friends. Thank you Jason for this wonderful template for success in life!!!

This book is like a red bull in book form. Jason takes you through a transformative process that allows you see what you are good at and enhance those strengths. I would strongly recommend that readers take the book literally. What I mean by this is that when the books says write down 15 things about X - do it. Every activity is in the book at a specific location BY DESIGN. I believe that a lot of the impact that this book had on my life was because of the time that I invested in the activities and the decompressing what those ment in the greater picture of my goals, and strengths. Excellent read for entrepreneurs who need to find out what they should focus on, and what the need to hire for or outsource.

One more thing...

Email Jason - I was blown away how fast me got back to me when I asked him questions about his writing. A truly amazing individual who cares about his readers!
