The world of work has changed but our ways of working haven't kept pace. We are now working even harder, longer and at a faster pace than ever before. Longer hours and harder work aren't going to give us the career and life that we want. Today's work where you're selling your brain power and creativity, then your focus, attention, mindset and engagement are what will make the difference.

35 practical and pragmatic tips based on latest research in positive psychology, neuroscience, and common sense, will help you be more focused, creative and productive. Be more focused while at work, get more done, learn to switch off, get on and enjoy your life.
