Focusing on the importance of taking Microsteps to change habits or start new ones is an effective approach.
Marina Khidekel and the editors of Thrive Global, including Arianna Huffington, describe Microsteps in the areas of sleep, unplugging and recharging, communication, and creativity, to name a few.
My only minor critique is relatability for some of the advice. There is a certain level of economic privilege from some of the celebrities and entrepreneurs that I couldn’t grasp. But overall, the structure of the book is accessible with key Microsteps listed and explained at the end of each chapter.
What I loved: It’s a quick read packed with informative data from studies, inspirational quotes from philosophers, and questions for reflection. I also loved the emphasis on meditation and its importance in unlocking one’s full potential. I also greatly appreciated the inclusion of the pandemic and the impact it’s having on all of us and ways we can continue to thrive together. Reminders of our interconnectedness are crucial during troubling times.

Your Time to Thrive by Marina Khidekel is a book to help improve your life by taking 'microsteps' instead of making huge or dramatic changes all at once.
I love how this book encourages small and manageable actions instead of committing to run 3 miles every day (or some other dramatic and scary challenge). This book offers so many usable tips and doesn't feel heavy or filled with pressure. The book covers topics like sleep, nutrition, movement, focus, communication, creativity, and purpose.
I highly recommend this book. It's easy to read, filled with so much valuable information, and doesn't make you feel overwhelmed.
I'm so grateful to Marina Khidekel, Hachette Books, and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this ARC ebook in exchange for my honest review.
On the plus side- the books organization made it easy to skim and say- “not my problem” ( eg, I already keep work stuff off my personal phone- so Im not working 24/7) , and move on to the next section.
The micro steps were also a interesting concept- rather than make dramatic changes- make small changes, see success, then make another small change, it all adds up. For example if - eg think of 3 things I am grateful for- before I pick up my cell phone, I will have a better day. Then, maybe start writing in a journal for a few minutes each night, leading to a change of mindset. All very do-able.
I was however annoyed by the endless quotes from celebrities telling us how they “ figured it out”. Personally, ( and I know others feel differently) I am turned off by “influencers” and try to avoid them as often as possible. So I could have done without quotes from Katy Perry, Hoda Kotab, or Tiffany Shlain, filmmaker and author. “Ugh Im so busy making millions, I just don’t have time for a life, until I started journaling, meditating, taking naps, etc“. These are fortunately interspersed with actual scientific and psychological research, so I skimmed forward to those.
There really was nothing was nothing earth shattering in this book-the last 25% of the book is citing references of the info ( ie the original sources, many from “ Thrive .org”), just lots of common sense stuff, all pulled together for you and neatly organized in bite size chunks.
All that said- would I recommend the book? The answer is “Yes!” - if you can find one idea, one micro step- it could change your life, or at a minimum make you a tiny bit happier with it.
Worth a try.
Overall, the book is well structured and easy to read. Each chapter dives into an important topic, from research to stories to specific suggestions on habits you can form.
As an author myself (Tiny Habits), I know how much work goes into making a book so practical and helpful.
Don't have time to read? Don't let that stop you. Instead, get this book now and start with the summaries at the end of each chapter. Then dig into specific chapters that interest you most.
