About Your Best Just Got Better Book

Imagine if your best just got better every single day

In Your Best Just Got Better, productivity expert Jason Womack teaches readers that working longer hours doesn't make up for a flawed approach to productivity and performance. Workers need to clarify their habits, build mindset-based strategies, and be proactive. Womack's signature "workplace performance" techniques offer specific strategies to consistently and incrementally improve performance.

Readers will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of workflow and the principles of human performance
  • Arm themselves with the tools and the processes to get more of their work done, on time, with fewer resources, and with less stress

Making your best better won't happen overnight, but learning how to effectively manage just a few critical success factors lead to an effective workday and an overall successful professional career.

The Three Driving Points

The Three Driving Points

  • First, to work smarter, use all the available time in your schedule, identify your top priority tasks, pare your task list down and maintain your focus. To work better, change your work habits, even if your existing habits brought you success.
  • Second, to think bigger, believe in yourself and what you can accomplish. Spend time with supportive people, expand your social network and eliminate distractions.
  • Third, to make more – more money, time, opportunities, memories or anything else – create a continuous cycle of improvement.

Your Best Day

Your Best Day

Imagine your ideal day. What time would you get up in the morning? What would you do first? What would you accomplish? Who would you be with? Visualizing your ideal day and committing that vision to paper will help you “work smarter, think bigger and make more.”

Working Smarter

Working Smarter

A day consists of 96 blocks of time that are 15 minutes long, so each 15-minute block is about 1% of your day. You can dramatically increase your efficiency by managing the time on your calendar in blocks of a quarter of an hour. When you suddenly have an extra 15 minutes, such as when a meeting ends early or when someone you’re expecting is late, be prepared to use the time to your advantage.

Carry the tools you need to complete some of the small tasks on your to-do list, like making hotel reservations, listening to your voicemail, writing thank-you notes or outlining a writing project.

Your ambitions will never be out of reach when you keep your focus on them and surround yourself with people who inspire you.

Just Do It

Just Do It

Focus on one truly important goal

  1. what is the one thing that will have the most impact on your job/life?
  2. what are the small steps to help you attain this goal?
  3. debrief regularly your progress: what worked? What didn’t? What do I need to change?

Find Your Pace And Leverage Small Windows Of Time Effectively

Find Your Pace And Leverage Small Windows Of Time Effectively

Progress is achieved by steady action. Find your pace, avoid burn out and keep momentum.

Value each pocket of time. Make the most of 15 min windows here and there to tackle smaller tasks and free up mental space for more complex and time consuming tasks.

Eliminate Distractions

Eliminate Distractions

  • Do a brain dump of all the uncompleted tasks that distract you from your main objective. Tick those distractions from your to do list.
  • Spend time with those that inspire and energize you. Each day debrief how the people you spent your time with made you feel (energized, productive). Adjust your schedule accordingly if possible. Try to spend at least an hour per week with those that truly inspire you.
