Blog Tour & Review: Eat Sleep Work Repeat by Bruce Daisley

Title: Eat Sleep Work Repeat
Author: Bruce Daisley
Release Date: February 25th, 2020
Publisher: HarperOne
Synopsis:

“An important reminder of simple everyday practices to improve how we all work together, which will lead to greater team and individual happiness and performance. Great results will follow.”—Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square

“With just 30 changes, you can transform your work experience from bland and boring (or worse) to fulfilling, fun, and even joyful.”—Daniel Pink, author of When and Drive

The vice president of Twitter Europe and host of the top business podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat offers thirty smart, research-based hacks for bringing joy and fun back into our burned out, uninspired work lives.

How does a lunch break spark a burst of productivity? Can a team’s performance be improved simply by moving the location of the coffee maker? Why are meetings so often a waste of time, and how can a walking meeting actually get decisions made?

As an executive with decades of management experience at top Silicon Valley companies including YouTube, Google, and Twitter, Bruce Daisley has given a lot of thought to what makes a workforce productive and what factors can improve the workplace to benefit a company’s employees, customers, and bottom line. In his debut book, he shares what he’s discovered, offering practical, often counterintuitive, insights and solutions for reinvigorating work to give us more meaning, productivity, and joy at the office.

A Gallup survey of global workers revealed shocking news: only 13% of employees are engaged in their jobs. This means that burn out and unhappiness at work are a reality for the vast majority of workers. Managers—and employees themselves—can make work better. Eat Sleep Work Repeat shows them how, offering more than two dozen research-backed, user-friendly strategies, including:

Go to Lunch (it makes you less tired over the weekend)
Suggest a Tea Break (it increases team cohesiveness and productivity)
Conduct a Pre-Mortem (foreseeing possible issues can prevent problems and creates a spirit of curiosity and inquisitiveness)

“Let’s start enjoying our jobs again,” Daisley insists. “It’s time to rediscover the joy of work.”

My Review:

Bruce Daisley gives an insightful look at the workplace and adds reasoning as to why employees aren’t happy at their jobs. He gives examples based on statistics and experiences to show how workers can be more productive while reducing stress throughout the week and even enjoy their time at the workplace.

I really thought enjoyed this self-help book because it is coming from a well-known CEO which means this man is dedicated. I’m sure a busy man doesn’t have to sit down and take the time to write a book, but as I was reading I felt his willingness and eagerness to make the workplace for everyone better.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I give Eat Sleep Work Repeat 4 stars. I think Bruce Daisley creates hacks that can actually be accomplished and attainable for many. He adds a wide variety of hack and steps to take that are beneficial for everyone.
