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)

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.

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.

Very helpful — easy listen/read

This book was engaging, simple to apply, and easily listened to in one day. I believe that the principles in this book are revolutionary in that they take many areas of understanding and make them clear for personal application. Carey has done an amazing job engaging the listener and reader!

Every leader in their 30s needs this

After being an entrepreneur and parent of young kids during a pandemic, this couldn’t be more timely. Thank you for the honesty and transparency.

The book you’ve been looking for-

As a business owner, husband, and dad, not to mention volunteer, friend, and manager( the list goes on and on!); I have constantly been in the search for the right balance of productivity, building relationships, leading etc. If you are like me- you absolutely have experienced some form of the burnout that Carey Nieuwhof very clearly describes in his book. After listening and starting to put into practice, I have slowly started to regain my sanity, enjoy my work, and really be able to focus on the relationships and priorities that matter. This is not gimmicky, nor does it require a huge investment of time, money, or effort. Finally a resource that teaches you to truly be “ At Your Best!” I can’t wait to see what the next few months bring. Listen to this book- it will give you the freedom you’ve been looking for.
