How to Have a Good Day is an extraordinary book - a wonderful mix of science, practical advice, and stories based on Caroline Webb's years of experience helping a huge range of people transform their professional lives for the better. Every chapter is studded with engaging real-world examples that ring true and illustrate how to make the most of the book's suggestions. Whatever your personal definition of a good day, you'll have more of them after reading this book. (Susan Cain, author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking )
How to Have a Good Day is a smart, thorough, and eminently practical book. Just about every page offers a science-based tip to help you become better off - or, in many cases, just plain better. (Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive)
The quest for self-improvement usually takes place on a well-trodden path, with many different gurus offering guidance. But the advice, in addition to being contradictory, often lacks solid foundations. Fortunately, How to Have a Good Day is the breakout exception to this category. The evidence and examples packed inside its pages leave the reader in no doubt that Webb's advice will make a real difference. Better days lead to better lives, and this extraordinary book will lead to both. (Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup and The Happiness of Pursuit)
Behavioral science has come of age in recent years, and it has begged for a world-class translator. Now we have one. Caroline Webb's peerless translation of the behavioral sciences into tools for shaping the quality of our day is the book we've been waiting for. Play with just 2% of the ideas in this book, and you might just end up changing your life's course. Words like 'magisterial' come to mind. Bravo. (Tom Peters, co-author of award-winning bestseller In Search of Excellence)
Finally, a practical book based on evidence. How to Have a Good Day is grounded in state-of-the-art research on behavior and neuroscience, and animated with vivid examples from professionals who have successfully applied Webb's advice. It might even leave you looking forward to your next tricky conversation or challenging task as an opportunity to try out her tips. (Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals)
Almost all of us work in environments where our time is stretched far too thin. How to Have a Good Day helps us rise to that challenge, containing ideas and techniques that show us how to be at our own personal and professional best every day. (Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.)
Webb has given us a great gift: she has synthesized all the advice coming out of labs around the world, filtered it for quality, and illustrated it with well-chosen examples. The appendices alone will save you dozens of hours per year - particularly on email - and help you create more great days for yourself. This is the only self-improvement book you will need in the next five years. (Jonathan Haidt, NYU-Stern School of Business, Author of The Happiness Hypothesis, and The Righteous Mind)
There's a big difference between having a great, productive day and having a bland, ordinary one. Caroline Webb deftly explains how to squeeze the most out of twenty-four hours, to create more of the former. Very useful. (Sir Michael Moritz, Chairman of Sequoia Capital)
Imagine what your life would be like if you could simply 'choose' to have a good day. Webb makes a powerful case that we can. Best of all, she shows us how. Webb gets her arms around the vast body of information coming at us from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience, and distills the best of it into the kind of practical advice a wise friend might offer. It's the book Daniel Kahneman might write if he'd been working in the business world for twenty years. Masterful. (Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen, co-authors of the bestselling Difficult Conversations and Thanks for the Feedback)
A powerful toolkit to improve both work and well-being. From email and meetings to making the most out of every day, Webb shows us not just how to be more productive, but how to be more fulfilled along the way. (Jonah Berger, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Contagious and Invisible Influence)
The 7-step plan to having a lifetime of good days, backed by cutting edge research.See all Product description

My biggest take away - I see a difference in my attitude to tasks, starting the day with intentions, helped to think more practically and I feel less dispersed at the end of the day.
I’m not one - but could be useful for artistic souls, like my mum.;). She doesn’t speak English though. ;).
Simple and clear explanations, practical and usable tips, some aha moments about our failures on productivity.
I can’t recommend it enough.
