From the bestselling author of The Power of Habit comes a fascinating new book exploring the science of productivity, and why, in today's world, managing how you think--rather than what you think about--can transform your life. Productivity, recent studies suggest, isn't always about driving ourselves harder, working faster and pushing ourselves toward greater "efficiency." Rather, real productivity relies on managing how we think, identify goals, construct teams and make decisions. The most productive people, companies and organizations don't merely act differently--they envision the world and their choices in profoundly different ways. This book explores eight concepts that are critical to increasing productivity. It takes you into the cockpit of two passenger jets (one crashes) to understand the importance of constructing mental models--telling yourself stories about yourself in order to subconsciously focus on what really matters. It introduces us to basic training in the U.S. Marine Corps, where the internal locus of control is exploited to increase self-motivation. It chronicles the outbreak of Israel's Yom Kippur War to examine cognitive closure--a dangerous trap that stems from our natural desire to feel productive and check every last thing off our to-do lists, causing us to miss obvious risks and bigger opportunities. It uses a high-achieving public school in Cincinnati to illuminate the concept of disfluency, which holds that we learn faster and more deeply when we make the data harder to absorb. It shows how the principles of lean manufacturing--in which decision-making power is pushed to the lowest levels of the hierarchy--allowed the FBI to produce a software system that had eluded them for years. It explores how Disney made Frozen into a record success by encouraging tension among animation teams--a version of what biologists refer to as the Intermediate Disturbance Hypothesis, which posits that nature is most creative when crises occur. With the combination of relentless curiosity, deep reporting and rich storytelling that defined The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg takes readers from neurology laboratories to Google's brainstorming sessions and illustrates how we can all increase productivity in our lives.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of The Power of Habit comes a fascinating book that explores the science of productivity, and why managing how you think is more important than what you think—with an appendix of real-world lessons to apply to your life. At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity concepts—from motivation and goal setting to focus and decision making—that explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics—as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters—this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations don’t merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways. A young woman drops out of a PhD program and starts playing poker. By training herself to envision contradictory futures, she learns to anticipate her opponents’ missteps—and becomes one of the most successful players in the world. A group of data scientists at Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function, and find that how a group interacts is more important than who is in the group—a principle, it turns out, that also helps explain why Saturday Night Live became a hit. A Marine Corps general, faced with low morale among recruits, reimagines boot camp—and discovers that instilling a “bias toward action” can turn even the most directionless teenagers into self-motivating achievers. The filmmakers behind Disney’s Frozen are nearly out of time and on the brink of catastrophe—until they shake up their team in just the right way, spurring a creative breakthrough that leads to one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. What do these people have in common? They know that productivity relies on making certain choices. The way we frame our daily decisions; the big ambitions we embrace and the easy goals we ignore; the cultures we establish as leaders to drive innovation; the way we interact with data: These are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive. In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, deep reporting, and rich storytelling to explain how we can improve at the things we do. It’s a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, one that can help anyone learn to succeed with less stress and struggle, and to get more done without sacrificing what we care about most—to become smarter, faster, and better at everything we do.

From the Inside Flap "I know you are already smart, fast, and good. Now it's time to become smarter, faster, and better. It's time to ask questions, slow down, and start focusing not on just your own self-development but on your contribution to your team, your organization, and the greater good."--From the Introduction In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed executive coach Karlin Sloan offers leaders a variety of self-assessments, habits, strategies, and sustainable practices that they can use to become what today's marketplace demands: smarter, faster, and better. Sloan shows what it takes to make the move to the next level to become a leader who both grows the bottom line and contributes to stakeholders and the world in a positive way. Based on research, study, and the author's extensive experience as a coach to leaders of top organizations, this book shows how to become smarter, faster, and better by examining these questions: What are your key strengths and what do you need to develop or leverage? What are you focused on now and what do you need to accomplish to really get ahead? Are your values in line with your work? What is the end you are trying to achieve? Smarter, Faster, Better is solution-focused. It helps leaders gain perspective and self-knowledge, seize opportunities they may not have seen before, achieve their highest potential, and resolve the issues that threaten to hold them back from the success they desire for themselves and their organizations. Reviews "For those of us constantly striving to operate smarter, faster, and better, Karlin Sloan reminds us sagely, through wonderful stories, that we may well achieve our highest levels of performance, potential, and fulfillment by asking questions, slowing down, and being of service. Great advice for a weary world and particularly for leaders seeking sustained peak performance for themselves and the organizations they lead." --Timothy Dorman, chief operating officer, leadership coaching and development, Korn/Ferry International "Karlin Sloan nails the essentials of leading and motivating a senior management team for measurable success by both understanding and tapping into the power of human interaction." --Tom Bernardin, chairman and CEO, Leo Burnett Worldwide, Inc. "This book hits a home run when it comes to offering sound and practical ways to face the pace and pressures of increasing complexity and overload--and to show up as an effective leader when results have to be innovative. Smarter, Faster, Better helped me see how slowing down to move forward faster can transform my experience of being a leader in a growth industry." --Steve Kowalski, director, learning and development, Genentech, Inc. "How often have you said to yourself, 'I need help, ' 'I don't have enough time, ' or 'I'm stressed'? Karlin Sloan offers us an opportunity to learn practical strategies for bringing out the best in ourselves as well as in others through examining the lives of many leaders she has coached. Prepare to reflect and learn where your strengths lie." --Courtenay Huff, partner, Accenture
