Summary

Summary

“An absolute gem—useful, evidence-based, and a pleasure to read” (Katy Milkman, author of How to Change)—this is a clear-eyed and comprehensive book that decodes the science of how to better use your time to live a more meaningful, pleasurable, and fulfilling existence.

Our most precious resource isn’t money. It’s time. Not only are we allotted just twenty-four hours a day and an unknown number of years, we also live in a culture that tricks us into feeling “time poor,” like we never have enough.

Based on her wildly popular class at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, Professor Cassie Holmes guides us in how to immediately improve our lives by better investing our time. Happier Hour reveals that the amount of time we have isn’t actually the problem but rather, how we perceive and choose to spend the time we have. Holmes clearly lays out the solution—providing accessible, easy-to-implement tools that will allow you to:

- Expand your time
- Optimally spend your hours and feel confident in your choices
- Sidestep distractions
- Create and savor moments of joy
- Design your schedule with purpose
- Look back on your years without regrets and much more

Enlivened by Holmes’s upbeat narrative and ground-breaking research, Happier Hour demonstrates how just a few, small changes can have an enormous impact—helping you feel less overwhelmed, more present, and more satisfied with your life overall—things that money can’t buy. With this book, you will learn how to craft the time of your life. It all starts with a happier hour.
