The Checklist Book

Set Realistic Goals, Celebrate Tiny Wins, Reduce Stress and Overwhelm, and Feel Calmer Every Day (The Benefits of a Daily Checklist)

By Alexandra Franzen

Daily Checklist―Increase Your Productivity by Going Back to the Basics

Making lists is always a great way to organize yourself...it really will help that procrastination we all suffer from. ―Capturing Your Confidence

#1 Best Seller in Time Management, Business Skills, Education & Reference, and Memory Improvement

Too much to do, too little time? Feeling overwhelmed and stressed? Go back to the basics by writing out a simple daily checklist. It will change your life.

Simplicity at its best. The checklist is one of the world’s oldest—and most effective—productivity systems and time management strategies. If anything, it is just as valuable now as it was during the days of the Roman Empire. Writing out a simple daily checklist allows us to plan our day and set in stone what we want to accomplish.

Cut out unnecessary noise. There are countless apps and organizational systems to help us straighten out our lives, but often they only add to the madness. Trying to keep up leaves us feeling drained and overwhelmed. Learn how to choose your highest priorities, set realistic goals, celebrate tiny wins, and feel calmer every day with the magic of checklists.

Be realistic about the time in a day. By physically writing down our tasks on a single piece of paper, we force ourselves to limit how much we can do in a day. Too often, we cram our day with tasks and chores and leave almost no space for self-care or time with loved ones. We end up disappointed in our inability to complete our never-ending to-do list. Checklists help you plan your day in a more realistic way. You accomplish what needs to be done—and enjoy things you want to be doing, too.

Inside learn:

  • The history of the checklist and why it's effective today
  • The science behind the success of checklists
  • How to create a basic daily checklist—and checklists for specific situations

Readers who love life-improvement books like The Bullet Journal MethodFree to Focus, or Atomic Habits will love The Checklist Book.

Never Give Up!

“This book is your new best friend on a bad day.” —Vanessa Van Edwards, bestselling author of Captivate

“It's one thing to say ‘never give up!’ but it's another thing to actually live through the pain of rejection and disappointment that makes you question your work and your worth. When that happens, read this book. It will get you through.” —Nicole Antoinette, host of Real Talk Radio

Life involves overcoming adversity. No matter what kind of career you’ve chosen, you’re going to deal with discouragement, frustration, and situations that are, shall we say, “less than ideal.” It could be a hysterical client who’s demanding a refund, a job interview that goes nowhere, watching your best friend get the exciting promotion that you wanted, or a vicious one-star review that rattles your self-esteem and makes you question your talent, your identity, everything. When that moment arrives, open this book.

Defeat and getting through it. Each chapter is filled with honesty, humor, and words of motivation to help you stay motivated, keep marching, and never give up―even when things feel incredibly tough. Inside, you’ll find stories by professional authors, chefs, lawyers, Broadway performers, business consultants, and more―each describing one of the worst moments in their entire career, and how they got through it to achieve their career goal.

In You’re Going to Survive, you’ll find:

  • Heartfelt encouragement
  • Inspiring true stories
  • Tips of how to overcome setbacks
  •  And so much more!

If you loved books such as You Turn, Mind Over Matter, or Crush Your Career, then You’re Going to Survive is the perfect addition to your book collection!

So This Is the End

By

#1 New Release in Science Fiction & Fantasy — What Happens When You Find Your Soulmate, but You Only Have One Day to Live?

Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You and Jill Santopolo’s The Light We Lost, comes a powerful romance

What if doctors could revive you from death—and give you an extra 24 hours of life?

One more day. One more chance to tell your family how much you love them. One more chance to say goodbye to friends, listen to your favorite song, throw an epic party, feel the grass beneath your feet, or watch the sunset. How would you spend your time?

So This Is The End follows Nora Hamilton as she navigates her final 24 hours. She’s determined to do something meaningful and make every moment count.

Enter: Renzo. Ren, for short. Strong, compassionate, unfairly attractive, with a face that makes Nora’s stomach explode into stars. Their connection is immediate, with white-hot intensity. Nora is wracked with bittersweet joy and confusion as she realizes, “I’ve finally met the love of my life… on the last day of my life.”

Should she tell Ren the truth about her condition—tell him she doesn’t have much time left? How will he react? Is it unethical to allow yourself to fall in love with someone when there’s no possibility of a future together? Or is love a precious gift, no matter how long it lasts, even if it’s just for one day?

What happens next is a story about taking chances, making your own rules, and the power of living like there’s no tomorrow.

A moving romantic drama: Early readers call So This Is The End "a breath of fresh air," "moving and beautiful," "an amazing wake-up call," a book you'll be "unable to put down," with a story that makes you "fall in love the instant you start reading."
