A Powerful Guide to Getting the Life You've Always Wanted
Do you find yourself exasperated by the busyness of modern life? Have too many conflicting obligations and not enough time, energy, or patience to get everything done?

Happiness and productivity expert Dr. Christine Carter shares the combination of practices that transformed her own life from overwhelmed and exhausted to joyful, relaxed, and productive in her best-selling book The Sweet Spot.

In this step-by-step guide, her trials and errors are your reward. From time-saving micro-habits to bigger picture shifts that convert stress into productive and creative energy, The Sweet Spot shows us how to:
  • Say "no" strategically (and know when to say "yes" with abandon)
  • Make decisions about routine things once so you can focus on higher priorities
  • Stop multitasking and gain efficiency
  • “Take recess” in sync with your brain’s need for rest
  • Use technology in ways that bolster, instead of sap, energy
  • Increase your ratio of positive to negative emotions
Complete with practical tips as well as stories from Carter’s own experience of putting The Sweet Spot into action, the proven principles within this book will help you achieve more by doing less. It’s possible, and The Sweet Spot shows you how.
