    Are you overextended, over-distracted, and overwhelmed? Do you work at a breakneck pace all day, only to find that you haven’t accomplished the most important things on your agenda by the time you leave the office? The world has changed and the way we work has to change, too. Manage Your Day-to-Day will give you a toolkit for tackling the challenges of a 24/7, always-on workplace. We’ll show you how to build a rock-solid daily routine, field a constant barrage of messages, find focus amid chaos, and carve out the time you need to do the work that matters.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Manage Your Day-to-Day to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I haven't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The practical tricks and tips how to manage my time.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Stella and Laural Merlington ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't


    What did you learn from Manage Your Day-to-Day that you would use in your daily life?

    • Creative work first, reactive work second.

    • Don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has to get down to work.

    • We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.

    • The human mind is better suited for running sprints than marathons.

    • We tend to overestimate what we can do in a short period and we underestimate what we can do over a long period. A small daily task, if it'll be really daily, will beat the labours of a spasmodic Hercules. Over the long run, the unglamorous habit of frequency fosters both - productivity and creativity.

    Story

    This book is about going deep and really digging under the surface. I strongly suggest it to any couple who's interested in lasting relationship.

    I really hated the mixing of different audio files... I guess some parts of the audiobook were from the old version and some from the new version. Poorly mixed, really.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    Story

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Habit the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was the best I've heard so far.


    Would you recommend The Power of Habit to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend only the last 20 minutes of the book, the rest is just too much information.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned a lot from this books, I could say too much. All I wanted was a formula that would help me change my habits and to be fair, I got it - the last 20 minutes of the book. The rest was just story telling with too much insights and details, which my in my opinion were unnecessary.

    Story
    Would you listen to How to Stop Worrying and Start Living again? Why?

    Yes! Because this book is full of practical information and real life stories that I won't be able to grasp at once. Besides, this book really calms my nerves just by listening to it, so yes, I would listen to it again.

    And more thing, since worrying is a habit and habits are hard to break I think it is necessary to listen to it over and over again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The practical knowledge that can be easily applied to any life situations.


    What about Andrew MacMillan’s performance did you like?

    He's voice is really calming and clear.
