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.

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".

Don't be fooled, this may be a relatively short book, but it has some fantastic content that will help you if you are looking to get more done, be successful etc. Well worth a read, some extremely useful stuff to implement

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great deal of substance 7 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise of the book is fine. However, the execution leaves you feeling a little short-changed. It seems to be a series of essentially essay-type stories blended together around the idea that much of your time is flexible. Whilst this is the case for some middle/upper income young professionals, it's not really inspirational for those who have obstinately structured full-time jobs.

There was also a strong undercurrent of exercise, parenting and praying about the examples, as if the author had essentially tapped into a group of people who are almost wholly drawn from such backgrounds. Maybe its my British reserve, but this was an angle which jarred.

Nevertheless, it contained one or two helpful tips which is why it isn't less than 3-stars. Truth to tell, if you're drawn to a book with this title then the chances are your already engaged with most of the ideas here. For reasonably well-read self-helpers there's not much new.

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.

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!
