'Laura Vanderkam is one of the world's leading experts in time management and productivity . . . her insights in Off the Clock can change your life' - Dorie Clark, author of Stand Out

'Laura Vanderkam delivers a compelling and evidence-based argument that busyness is overrated in our current culture. Living a full life, at work and at home, is about doing the right things well, and confidently missing out on everything else' - Cal Newport, bestselling author of Deep Work

Learn to savour life's best moments - no matter how busy you are - through mindset shifts that alter your perception of time.

Laura Vanderkam, the acclaimed author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, isn't like other time-management gurus. She's not trying to shave off 30 seconds here or there; she's interested in the emotional and psychological side of the 168 hours everyone has each week. Her message is that we all have more time than we think we do, and can feel less stressed while getting more done.

With the right habits, you can live efficiently and effectively, and yet still see time as abundant. For instance, Vanderkam teaches:

- How to clear your calendar of activities that are boring, stressful or simply not the best use of your time
- Why tackling your top priorities during the hours when you have the most energy will change your perception of what it means to be productive
- How to linger in great experiences while they're happening, and why good memories seem to make time expand

Packed with insights from busy yet relaxed professionals, including 'time makeovers' of people who are learning to use these tools, Off the Clock can inspire the rest of us to creative lives that are not only productive, but enjoyable in the moment.
