How did you spend your time today? What did you do really well? Were you running behind for every meeting? Feeling stressed? Constantly struggling to maintain your focus? If your performance today was your best, then it's time to make your best better.
In Your Best Just Got Better, productivity expert Jason Womack shows you that working longer hours doesn't make up for a flawed approach to productivity and performance.

It's time to work smart and think big. But how smart you work depends on how well you know yourself, how clear your goals are, and how well you're using your time.
