Publisher's Summary

“A perceptive and practical book about why our calendars so rarely reflect our priorities and what we can do to regain control.” (Adam Grant) 

“Carey’s book will help you reorganize your life. And then you can share a copy with someone you care about.” (Seth Godin)

You deserve to stop living at an unsustainable pace. An influential podcaster and thought leader shows you how.

Overwhelmed. Overcommitted. Overworked. That’s the false script an inordinate number of people adopt to be successful. Does this sound familiar: 

  • Slammed is normal. 
  • Distractions are everywhere.  
  • Life gets reduced to going through the motions. 

Tired of living that way? At Your Best gives you the strategies you need to win at work and at home by living in a way today that will help you thrive tomorrow. 

Influential podcast host and thought leader Carey Nieuwhof understands the challenges of constant pressure. After a season of burnout almost took him out, he discovered how to get time, energy, and priorities working in his favor. This approach freed up more than one thousand productive hours a year for him and can do the same for you. 

At Your Best will help you:

  • Replace chronic exhaustion with deep productivity 
  • Break the pattern of overpromising and never accomplishing enough 
  • Clarify what matters most by restructuring your day 
  • Master the art of saying no, without losing friends or influence 
  • Discover why vacations and sabbaticals don’t really solve your problems 
  • Develop a personalized plan to recapture each day so you can break free from the trap of endless to-dos 

Start thriving at work and at home as you discover how to be at your best.

Critic Reviews

“The results we get are largely determined by the systems in our lives. The wrong system makes results harder to get. The right system makes it easier, almost effortless, to achieve the right results. This is brilliantly illustrated in Carey Nieuwhof’s new book, At Your Best.” (Greg McKeown, New York Times best-selling author of Effortless and Essentialism and the host of the What’s Essential podcast)

“Carey Nieuwhof offers a powerful recipe for thriving: Do what you do best, at the times when you’re at your best, while making sure other people’s priorities don’t get in the way. An important guide for anyone feeling burned out by their ‘successful’ career.” (Cal Newport, New York Times best-selling author of A World Without Email and Deep Work)

“Clear, concise, and highly practical, the strategies Carey Nieuwhof outlines will help you accomplish far more in far less time at work and at home.” (Nir Eyal, best-selling author of Indistractable)

He's lived my life!

The story of burnout was my story. I wish I would have had this book years ago. If you are in your 20's or 30's, be sure to pay attention. The lifestyle you think you love can be your greatest enemy. Carey explains this perfectly and gives you the tools to change.

So helpful.

I started implementing this book before it was even over, and started seeing and feeling the benefits on day one. One of the most practical, actually helpful, leadership and productivity books I've ever read.

Finally a custom made plan I can work with

This is such a good read. It skipped all my issues with executive functioning I have issues with and helped me to make a custom made plan that will work for me. I'm so excited to fin my green zone and find what works best in them. It is easy to understand principles and I believe it will be a realistic practical way of remaining my work and personal life to find better "balance' or should I rather say my personal passion and what works in my life. Super excited to start the journey.

Super helpful book! Recommend read

I would skip the first 2 chapters, in my opinion it starts a little slow, but there is solid life changing content in here! It offers a life of freedom and gives helpful tools to begin doing what you actually want to do.

Powerful Stuff

I loved the essentials of how much is lost in ignoring the basics.
This is easy to read and understand
My only gripe ( if you can call it such)is that it's too short.
