Discover: How to Find Your Work-Life Balance with a Powerful Daily Routine

Imagine what your life would be like if your days were filled with purpose, productivity, and time to enjoy the little things. (Instead of chaos, overwhelm, and exhaustion.) You can make this happen by building a daily routine that perfectly blends your personality with your career and personal obligations. Unfortunately, it isn't always easy to stick to a day-to-day ritual. You might be so busy that you can't add anything else to your crowded schedule. Or you might be following advice that doesn't match who you are. (Like forcing yourself to wake up at 5 a.m. when you work best late at night.) So what's the secret to creating a daily routine that sticks? The answer: Build one that matches your natural energy levels and gives you the flexibility to meet all of your day-to-day obligations.

Learn: How to Find (and Focus on) the 80/20 of Your Daily Activities

The trick to finding that work-life balance is to be intentional with how you spend your time. You can do this by applying the 80/20 rule, which states that you achieve 80% of your results from 20% of your effort. This principle applies to all areas of life. Right now, only a handful of the activities you do each day will have the biggest big impact on your life - whether you're at work, at home or enjoying a hobby. All you have to do identify these activities and focus on them instead of worrying about time-wasting activities. The great thing about this principle is that, once you're mindful of it, you learn to focus on the 20% that yields the best results. In the book Level Up Your Day we show you how to identify the 80/20 activities in the six areas of your routine and explain how to get the most from each experience.

Repeats common info from other books

This book provides the reader with many ideas for creating a daily routine. However, the book doesn't really go into depth on the mechanics of building a daily routine. Instead, it gives you general information about human behavior that should be considered when creating a routine. Much of this information comes from other self help books. In fact, I felt like I was listening to a summary of many other books and not hearing much original content.

If you've read other books on habit making, willpower, or mindfulness, then you will probably learn nothing new here.

The narration is actually pleasant and it moves along nicely. However, at times, the book's organization seems disjointed. This is definitely not a $10 audiobook. If you are really interested, I suggest you save yourself money and pay for the $.99 kindle version instead. It's a short read anyway.

Packed with tons of tips

This is a dense book packed with tips for building good habits and creating a daily routine for 6 essential areas:
1. energy (and sleep)
2. eating
3. exercise
4. routine activities (repetitive tasks like cleaning)
5. work
6. fun, hobbies, and creative outlets

Many of the tips seem simple but adding few good habits to your routine will have a huge positive impact over time. It's important that it's done consistently. Even if you miss a day, pick it back up rather than giving up on it entirely (like exercising). Do it enough times, you get into a groove of doing it without much thought (like brushing your teeth). For example, plan your meals for the week (like Mexican on Monday, Italian on Tuesday, etc. and create your grocery list). Then each night when you get home, you don't have to think about what to make for dinner. You avoid the situation where you can't decide and end up ordering take-out pizza. For exercise, you can start small like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or parking the car a little further. No matter how busy you think are, these little habits can easily get in extra movement each day.

Practical self help

This was my first S.J. Scott book, but I have already purchased another. What could be more helpful than learning to automate the tasks we all must perform so we can get on with the rest of our lives. In addition, thoughts were shared on having an excellent attitude about all we do, big or small.

The story has lots of good points.

At first it's a bit to fast and monotonous but its getting better as moving on. Slower talk will be appreciated.

Useful points

I found I didn't like the style on the first listen, but I enacted one or two suggestions from the book. then I listened again about once a week for a month or so, and each time noticed new points I could start enacting. over time I got some good value out of the book.

it delivers a lot of direct suggestions, so is more on the practical side than motivational side.

it suggests techniques and even specific apps and software for levelling up your life. quite tangible and easy to follow up on.
