Manage Your Day-To-Day: Build Your Focus, Find Your Routine, & Sharpen Your Creative Mind Review
What Manage Your Day-to-Day did for me
Upon starting whatmybrosaid, I became really interested with the idea of habits, structure, routine, and deep focus.
I was on the look out for valuable advice and any practical tricks about juggling the various projects and undertakings I had going on.
I wanted to be the type of person who was able to have multiple projects going on.
I wanted to be the type of person who was getting stuff done and being insanely productive all the while not compromising on time for play.
This book doesn’t offer a productivity system, but it offers valuable insights into the human condition from which these tips and tricks stem from.
And these tips and tricks are pretty universal as they help you tend to various areas of your life without neglecting any.
It’s the little things.
Make use of the entire day.
Wake up in the morning.
If you want to improve your creativity, start writing at the beginning of the day.
That context and habits matter – creativity doesn’t just come but it can be elicited (this one was a major thing for me…I even wrote a super popular post about this subject)
Or that energy and willpower are vital things to take into account when planning your workload.
And lots of valuable advice on unplugging and taking the time to recharge so as to restore balance to your life, and why it’s important to find moments of pure solace in the age of hyper connectivity.
The devil really is in the details.
And this book is all about details.
Details that add up to broader picture of overarching success and productivity.
For me it was also a nice bonus that all the book was a joint effort.
That is, different types of writers, from various fields, whether it be from the world of film-making, business, or behavioural economics all used their unique voices and styles to add value to this great book.
By reading so many different, versatile styles, you learn what type of writing you like to read and notice how totally sometimes drastically different styles can still speak to you.
I find this quite cool because you’d have to read a few books in a row to reach a similar conclusion.

Why Manage Your Day-to-Day works
An impressive list of contributors shared their hard-earned nuggets of wisdom in this little book.
People like Dan Ariely or Scott Belsky who have enjoyed huge successes in their careers offer tips on how to perfect your routine, implement more structure into your life, or improve your creativity.
It’s all trial tested advice.
They are normal people who share many commonalities with you and me but for some reason excel at what they do.
And these reasons are in here.
If you want to be successful, just model success.
