Achieve more by doing less! Learn to live in your sweet spot, that elusive place where you have great strength but also great ease. Not long ago, Christine Carter, a happiness expert and sociologist at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, found herself exasperated by the busyness of modern life: too many obligations and not enough time, energy, or patience to get things done. Drawing on her vast knowledge of the latest research related to happiness, productivity, and performance, she followed every strategy that could make her more energized, efficient, creative, or intelligent. Now she shares the practices that transformed her life from overwhelmed and exhausting to joyful, relaxed, and productive. This timely and inspiring book shows us how to say no strategically (and know when to say yes with abandon), stop multitasking and gain efficiency, "take recess" in sync with the brain's need for rest, use technology in ways that bolster-instead of sap-energy, be more resilient and joyful, even in tough times Book jacket.
