Summary, etc.:
"Our most precious resource isn't money. It's time. We are allotted just twenty-four hours a day, and we live in a culture that keeps us feeling time poor -- like we never have enough. Since we can't add more hours to the day, how can we experience our lives as richer? Is it possible to spend our days so they aren't just full, but are fulfilling? Based on her wildly popular MBA class at UCLA, Professor Cassie Holmes demonstrates how to immediately improve our lives by changing how we perceive and invest our time. Happier Hour provides empirically based insights and easy-to-implement tools that will allow you to: Optimally spend your hours and feel confident in those choices, sidestep distractions; create and savor moments of joy, design your schedule with purpose, and look back on your years without regrets. Enlivened by Holmes's upbeat narrative and groundbreaking research, Happier Hour teaches you how small changes can have an enormous impact, helping you feel less overwhelmed, more present, and more satisfied with your life overall. It all starts by transforming just one hour into a happier hour."--Provided by publisher.
