Book Look: “How to Have a Good Day”

By Kelsey Ogletree, September 15, 2016

Economist and former McKinsey & Company partner Caroline Webb has written the productivity-focused book to transcend all others with “How to Have a Good Day: Harness the Power of Behavioral Science to Transform Your Working Life.” Its key message is to set intentions and create filters to maximize day-to-day efficiency—and ultimately create a life of happiness. “We miss a big opportunity if we simply let the day happen to us,” writes Webb, who encourages readers to arrange their priorities from a top-down approach (long term to short term), and then schedule each to-do item based on those. The book also shares valuable tips for building fulfilling working relationships with co-workers. You’ll find yourself folding down every other page corner to remember to share tidbits with your team.
