From the Inside Flap
Stop for a moment and consider your average workday. Do you rush to get things done but still fall behind? Is the pressure of your work such that you “crash” when you get home? Do you want to exercise, but never have the time or the motivation to do so? Do you find yourself increasingly unhappy with your daily life and the struggle for more time? The very nature of modern life is hectic to an extent that could not have been imagined just a generation ago, leading to ever-present concerns over work-life balance. But despite the fast pace of everyday life and work, many people actually default to a lifestyle that never actually results in increased productivity. This can lead to failures in achieving goals, and the toll it can take on your mental state, your physical state, and your happiness is more troubling still.
Change Your Day, Not Your Life provides not only an overview of this reality, but the real-world mind-set and tools to make a change for the better. Author Andy Core helps hard-working, ambitious individuals increase their productivity and develop a positive work-life balance by sharing his secrets to achieving a healthy lifestyle, gaining more energy, and thriving at work through simple, realistic, and repeatable actions that you can incorporate into your everyday life.
The book is a perfect resource for both the individual and those charged with building and developing motivated, energetic employees and teams to further goals at the organizational level. Core will show you the four key characteristics that differentiates “Thrivers” from their less productive cohorts, how to identify where you stand with regards to these four characteristics, and how to change your day with “mini-patterns” that will become part of your way of life. Implement these important characteristics to better approach your work from a mental standpoint, keep your energy level up throughout the workday, understand why you’re working so hard in the first place, and design the flow of your day to accommodate both balance and productivity. With Change Your Day, Not Your Life, increased motivation and productivity are just a day away.
