What would it look like to have success in both your personal and business life? Many people wrestle with attempts to balance their time and energy between multiple priorities: career, family, hobbies, personal growth, and friendships. Many things constantly pull for our attention, energy, and time. With limited resources in all these areas, we must be wise in strategically approaching our priorities.
In Win at Work Succeed at Life: 5 Principles to Free Yourself from the Cult of Overwork, authors Michael Hyatt and Megan Hyatt Miller present the idea of the double win- winning at both work and life. Championing a message running polar opposite of the hustle approaches embraced by many successful entrepreneurs, Michael and Megan write 5 principles they have sought to live personally that allowed them to win in the most important areas of life and career.

- Work Is Only One of Many Ways to Orient Your Life
- Constraints Foster Productivity, Creativity, and Freedom
- Work-Life Balance Is Truly Possible
- There’s Incredible Power in Nonachievement
- Rest Is the Foundation of Meaningful, Productive Work
Through the pandemic and beyond, Michael and Megan have introduced the culture of the 6 hour work day in their company proving that the principles of this book work not only for them but for their company as well.
