Editorial Reviews

Review

"This inspiring book is a must-read for entrepreneurs and knowledge workers alike who want to grow their impact without losing sight of their core purpose."
  • CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, NYT bestselling author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup 
"Jason Womack has emerged as a new and exciting voice in the world of professional development. YOUR BEST JUST GOT BETTER offers an action-oriented and powerful set of resources leaders can use to improve themselves and help others achieve their greater potential."
  • DANIEL H. PINK, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
"In business as in sport, you can achieve more than you think is possible. For both it takes a well-defined purpose, unwavering perseverance, rock-solid patience, and an in-depth plan. Jason Womack's book, Your Best Just Got Better, will help you with all of that!"
  • JOE FRIEL, Cofounder TrainingPeaks
"Jason Womack's book, Your Best Just Got Better, provides a refreshing and current tack on a highly useful guide for being more productive and successful in work and life. His emphasis on focused planning, careful listening, and thoughtful self-examination is spot on. Bravo."
  • STERLING SHEA, Head of Wealth Management Programs, Barron's
"I've known Jason for at least 10 years. We've used him to train executives at General Mills, I've had him speak to my Leadership class for the University of Minnesota Executive MBA program and I've benefitted first hand from his coaching. All in all, his impact takes a number of forms:
- HIs material is current, cutting edge and high quality. In all my encounters, there was an immediate benefit and value-added application idea from him.
- Jason has a gift to tune into the audience or 1-1 coaching partner to communicate effectively and deliver exactly what is needed.
- Finally, Jason is a role model of high energy, fun, productivity and servant leadership. I can highly recommend him."
  • KEVIN D. WILDE, Former Chief Learning Officer @ General Mills, Executive Leadership Fellow, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota


Expand your perspective to improve your outcomesThis book is very interesting, practical, energizing and I highly recommend it.  Throughout, Jason offers hands-on exercises to get you into a more active mode of driving your own future.  I read the book cover-to-cover, but now I am planning to go back and conduct the exercises step-by-step (I skipped some exercises because I was on planes, or my energy / attention levels weren't where they needed to be) because I can see just how powerful they can be.

One pervasive theme throughout the book is to think beyond your "normal" perspective so you can stretch your goals, drive different and better effort, and get more assertive in pushing your life where you want it to go.  For example, the book begins with an interesting visioning exercise called "Your Ideal Day," which gets you to begin imagining how things could be if you had a magic wand.  
- Dwayne Melançon, Genuine Curiosity

From the Author

  • "Setting realistic goals does not mean you should understate what you think is possible. Instead, direct your focus toward the experience of completion and give ample attention to the next milestone of achievement. Build a series of bridges as you continually reach toward experiencing more of your Ideal Days." 
  • "An important aspect is that most sustainable changes people tend to make usually start small, are repeated with consistency, and often result in a payoff greater than anyone could have hoped." 
  • "There are only 96 15-minute blocks of time in a single day, and there are just 168 hours in a week." 
  • "Things are the way they are because of the way you think." 
  • "If you're waiting until you have time to decide what you'll do when you have time, you'll always run behind." 
  • "Use your mind to create new idea, develop old ones, and prioritize those you're contemplating right now."

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.

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!

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!!!
