Why would you ever settle for less ?
Why would you ever settle for less ? This is a very real and serious question for most people. If you could do better and should do better – why would you not make the pursuit of doing better? For most, it’s because they don’t know how or they don’t have a success model to follow.
Jason Womack has written a masterpiece. In a marketplace that is bombarded with motivational books and resources, “Your Best Just Got Better,” is head and shoulders above the others.
I loved it – and am reading it for the 2nd time as I post this !

Have you ever had a day at work when your best was just not good enough?
Jason has taken a large body of knowledge about personal development, time management and
productivity and packages the information in a way that allows you to see how focusing on the
development of your strengths is your best strategy for success.
Each chapter stands alone as a primer for working on some aspect of how you can truly function
with your most valuable resources: your time, your energy, and your ability to focus on the things
that really matter to you.
A neat reference book that is worth buying for your library! You will go to it many times as you seek
to improve your life as well as the way you work. He makes it absolutely clear that mastery in one area
of your life is bound to spill over in to others.

Most people can imagine their ideal day, but what would it take to make your perfect day – or parts of it – come to life? Jason W. Womack, an executive coach and workplace performance trainer, tells you how to change your habits and make your ideal day a reality. Womack identifies some commonsense ideas about how to “work smarter, think bigger and make more.” While few of his ideas are revolutionary, they add up to a compelling prescription for breaking through barriers that hold you back. getAbstract recommends Womack’s well-constructed collection of sound, practical, life-improving advice to anyone seeking increased efficiency and productivity.Was this review helpful?
