“An inspiring, heart-warming, go-getting book… an antidote to apathy.” Helen Tupper, co-author of The Squiggly Career

365 WAYS TO HAVE A GOOD DAY is a full year’s worth of daily inspiration, tools, habits, actions, and rituals that will help you live your best life. You’ll discover surprising insights from psychologists, business leaders, entrepreneurs and designers. You’ll explore the benefits of Feierabends and Laughies, have your eyes opened by a dance psychologist, and find out why one senior executive’s tattooed fingers help him make the right career choices. You’ll learn habit-forming strategies, pick up helpful hacks, and uncover tips for lasting change – all brought to life through real examples and thought-provoking stories that will get you looking at life differently.

You’ll meet a cast of characters from around the world who know all about creating success, from the founder of a billion-dollar mindfulness company in California to the Hollywood screenwriter who takes up to eight showers a day to fuel his ideas, and from the Harvard Business School professor who discovered more joy at work by wearing red trainers to the man who every Friday for five years set up a table in central NYC to give advice to strangers, including a gang member on the run.

365 WAYS TO HAVE A GOOD DAY focuses on the small stuff you can do every day to make life better. Because when you get the little things right, the big things follow. Things like figuring out where you’re going, hitting reset, designing the life you want, breaking through limiting beliefs, and creating success on your own terms. And when you find what works for you, you can do more of it, making you more productive, more fulfilled, and much happier.

"Equal parts funny and touching and yet in all ways wise, 365 Ways to Have a Good Day is more than a path to having better days; it's a simple, compelling structure to support the daily art and practice of living a better life."
Jerry Colonna, author, Reboot: Leadership and the Art of Growing Up.
"This book is a user manual for the next 24 hours. And the rest of your life. Our lives are decided by our daily practice. The problem is that most daily practices are done once a week, once a month, and for some, only once a year. Hmmm. But if you stop trying to change your life and lower the bar a little, and focus only on today. That's right, just the next 24 hours. And repeat that. Gradually, then suddenly, you will be living your best life. Because days change weeks. Months change years. Years change decades. Decades change lives."
David Hieatt, cofounder, The Do Lectures
