DODGE BURNOUT AND SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS. Greater Expectations is for anyone who's felt the Pressure to be all things to all people. Every morning you wake up to a state of digital overwhelm. You're still in bed and you reach for your phone; you scan the day's schedule, the night's build-up of news and texts and emails and your ever-mounting to-do list. It's not even 8 a.m. and you're already burned out. It doesn't have to be this way. Many of the world's most successful people have one thing in common, as simple as it is profound: They have established a routine. And you can do the same. We live in a time of greater expectations---we can't escape that. But we can be intentional about our response. These pages will show you how to reorder your days---and by extension, your life. Greater Expectations is part of the FRAMES series - short yet meaningful reads on the top issues facing us in today's complex culture. A new kind of book brought to you by Barna Group, to help you read less, and know more.
