Doing Your Best Work In 2 Awesome Hours Using Proven Science-Based Strategies
If the 8-hour work day dates back to the 1800s and we’re making sweeping advances in efficiency on a daily basis, shouldn’t a change be in order?
New York NeuroLeadership Institute Research Director & NeuroCoach Josh Davis, Ph.D. (media features include CBS News, MSNBC, USA Today, Bloomberg Businessweek, CNN and more) says you can do your best work in TWO AWESOME HOURS (HarperOne; May 2015) using proven science-based strategies.
Davis draws on the latest cutting-edge neuroscience—along with his years of experience coaching high-level executives and professionals—to lay out a simple yet powerful strategy to significantly slash your workday:
· Recognize daily “decision points” and then tackle what matters most
· Manage your mental energy
· Learn how to direct your attention rather than how to avoid distractions
· Properly feed and move your body to set yourself up for success
· Make your workspace work for you
According to Davis, the biggest challenge facing workers today isn’t the number of hours per day or the number of days each week; the most significant issue impeding productivity is the feeling of being overwhelmed.
In TWO AWESOME HOURS, Davis outlines and explains how to banish these feelings of defeat and work most effectively—along the way helping workers increase self-compassion, master their work, and gain control over their lives.
