Product Description

Product Description

What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast is a powerful book about high productivity from bestselling author Laura Vanderkam.



We're all busy. But we all waste time. What are the secrets of using every hour productively? How do the most successful people spend their time?



In this brilliant accessible book, Laura Vanderkam inspires you to rethink your morning routine and jump-start your day. If you use your mornings wisely, you can build habits that will lead to a happier, more productive life.



She also helps you to rethink your weekends. She explains why doing nothing can be more exhausting than doing something, how to balance work and play, and why Sunday nights are crucial.



Finally she challenges you to make the most of your time at the office. Focusing on matching your to-do list to your natural body clock, she shows you how to maximize your productivity so you can accomplish more in less time.



By blending stories of fascinating people with cutting-edge scientific research, Vanderkam shows us how to maximize our valuable mornings, make the most of our working hours, and enjoy the results with deeply satisfying weekends.



Laura Vanderkam is the author of 168 Hours and All the Money in the World. Her work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, CBS MoneyWatch, USA Today, and Fortune, among others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Tips 20 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is good, it has some good tips, and what it explains makes sense. Also ver quick to read, funniest thing is I actually read it in the morning before breakfast. It's stuff that people may already know, but it brings it back to your attention of how much tone we waste doing bugger all or non important things. I think it worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very short 25 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this because I am a big believer in the slight edge and so enjoy picking up personal development books when I can. I read this in a morning on my way to work (figures) because it was so easy to digest. It mainly repeats what we all know - get up and do some exercise whilst there is little distraction! I will give it another read but don't bother if you don't have children (seems as this is the example of the main distraction stopping you from being successful)...!

As per title. Short and to the point but no less simple and insightful - useable stuff if a little "motherhood and Apple pie".

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple ideas that worked wonders for me 1 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a Christmas present from a very good friend of mine. I admit, I was skeptical at first (not another book trying to push me to even greater levels of "productivity" - sigh!). Indeed, it is a great read. Even better, it motivated me to make lasting changes to my mornings and family weekends. Now I am making steady progress with some of the bigger projects I want to complete in 2014. And my busy mornings, getting younger children ready for school, feel calmer too. Laura Vanderkam's approach certainly worked for me. If you prefer detailed instructions for managing your time, then you might be disappointed (like some of the other reviewers).

Very short book (I'd have been annoyed to pay any more for it). Nothing here that individuals probably couldn't figure out for themselves, but reading how others have used their time better is a nudge to do a little better myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars nothing new... 8 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
nothing I didn't know, expected it to be less about exercising, more about organising my working life. good tips but hard to implement with young family and sleep deprivation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morning runs eh?! 31 Jan. 2013
By RASwan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Looks like I no longer have an excuse for not exercising when I get in from work and feeling tired...do it first when I wake then the day is still ahead. Here's to trying!

An overall good book, it held my interest throughout and was thought provoking. Short enough to read a number of times to really take the message on board. Worth a read!
