Do you want to save hours a day and do more in less time? Do you want to feel productive instead of stressed, defeated, and overwhelmed?
If you wonder where your time goes, you can’t motivate or organize yourself, and you struggle to buckle down and concentrate when it really matters, then your to-do list is not cutting it anymore. You need to develop “Instant Focus” and all that comes with it.
“Instant Focus” teaches the most important of skills — the ability to get stuff done. Without it? The difference between the life you want versus settling for “good enough.”
Self-motivation is notoriously difficult, so this book contains systems, hacks, tips, psychological phenomenon and external motivators to make success and productivity inevitable.
Each tactic for focus and productivity is the product of years of practice and experimentation. There are also tips used by many high-performers, including an interview with New York Times bestselling author Kevin Kruse. ♦
After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’ ” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.
“Option B” combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart — and her journal — to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But “Option B” goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere… and to rediscover joy. ♦
