The Sweet Spot

How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work


About the Book
Do you find yourself exasperated by the busyness of modern life? Have too many conflicting obligations and not enough time, energy, or patience to get everything done?

Live in that zone you’ve glimpsed but can’t seem to hold on to — the sweet spot. This is where you have the greatest strength, but also your least stress and greatest ease.

Not long ago, happiness and productivity expert Dr. Christine Carter thesweetspotfound herself exasperated by the busyness of modern life: too many conflicting obligations and not enough time, energy, or patience to get everything done. She tried all the standard techniques — prioritizing, multitasking, delegating, even napping — but none really worked. Determined to create a less stressful life for herself — without giving up her hard-won career success or happiness at home — she road-tested every research-based tactic that promised to bring more ease into her life. Drawing on her vast knowledge of the latest research related to happiness, productivity, and elite performance, she followed every strategy that promised to give her more energy — or that could make her more efficient, creative, or intelligent.

In this step-by-step guide, her trials and errors are your reward. From time-saving micro-habits to bigger picture shifts that convert stress into productive and creative energy, The Sweet Spot shows us how to:

  • Say “no” strategically (and know when to say “yes” with abandon)
  • Make decisions about routine things once so you can focus on higher priorities
  • Stop multitasking and gain efficiency
  • “Take recess” in sync with your brain’s need for rest
  • Use technology in ways that bolster, instead of sap, energy
  • Increase your ratio of positive to negative emotions

Complete with practical tips as well as stories from Carter’s own experience of putting The Sweet Spot into action, the proven principles within this book will help you achieve more by doing less. It’s possible, and The Sweet Spot shows you how.
