Publisher's Summary

Most people are stuck. Every day we seem to just go through the motions, following our usual routine without ever stopping and thinking why we do what we do, or what we'd rather be doing instead. But sometimes, we have that one day - that Perfect Day - where everything just clicks. We feel great. We are unstoppable. And at the end of it we think, "Why can't every day be like this?"

Critic Reviews

"Everybody wants to live the perfect life but fail to understand you do that by designing and living the perfect day, day after day. This book shows you exactly what you have to do to create that day." (Larry Winget, author of Grow a Pair)
"Like his site Early to Rise, Craig's book relies on ancient wisdom and classic thinkers - including my favorite, the Stoics - to help you organize your day and run your life." (Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle Is the Way)

90% motivational speaker-ese, 10% good ideas

I'm into self-improvement books, but this one was too cheesy, poorly written and over-simplified for my tastes. He makes big promises about how the Perfect Day template will change your life in every way possible (*eyeroll*), says things like "make rules for yourself and stick to them and you'll beat procrastination" as if that's any kind of real solution, and waste a lot of time with inspirational filler words, like life, goals, dreams, aspirations, etc. By part 2 I was audibly making gagging noises every time he overused those words. I was gagging a lot.


But having said all that, here I am at 6:20 in the morning, writing a review for this book. So yes, there's a good idea in there, and if this book could be summed up in one sentence, it would be: Get up early and tackle your one thing.

OK, so this review is not the most important thing in my day. I'm going to go get work done now. I just thought I'd spare the rest of you I whole bunch of wasted time by reading this book.

Life changing! This book/system is great. Read it.

An easy to follow (and easy to listen to) system to improve all areas of your life. The author has put his heart and soul into this program. Read/listen to it, do the exercises, then watch your life take off.

Great Book for Personal Improvement

I really enjoyed this book. The content was put together in a way that anyone could incorporate into their life. It showed me how much time I waste on things that don't matter and to focus on what really does to have a purposeful and happy life.

It's simple, yet we make it complicated!

Enjoyed the book very much. Very insightful! I truly admire the motivation behind the book, and look forwards to implementing the ideas for a perfect day.

Too many examples

I got tired of listening to him tell a story for each little thing. 5 pillars of success, a whole chapter of telling stories for each. I felt like I was listening to someones life story. Every "secret" to success was so simple, oh you have a goal? Break it into small goals! Bam, problem solved. Thanks for that groundbreaking advice Craig. The only thing I got out of it was the idea of creating a daily Not To-Do list.

Craig cut to the Chase, didn’t talk about anything “too woo” and gave me LOTS of “hard is what to do” that I find many of these kinds of books just don’t do. It was great to hear him read it as well. I will be attending a “perfect life workshop” after this. I’m very impressed.
