Win the Day: 7 Daily Habits to Help You Stress Less & Accomplish More

Mark Batterson. Multnomah, $21.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-593-19276-4
In this spirited motivational guide, Batterson (The Circle Maker), lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C., shares seven transformative habits to help Christians conquer life’s challenges. He explains that “winning the day isn’t about getting it right the first time... it’s about getting it right eventually.” To that end, he discusses seven habits: “flip the script, kiss the wave, eat the frog, fly the kite, cut the rope, wind the clock, and seize the day.” Together, the habits are meant to help readers push back against one’s internal “voice of doubt,” move beyond one’s past by “hiding from nothing,” tackle the day’s most pressing concerns first, “do little things like they are big things,” identify patterns of self-sabotage, confess sins, and learn from failure. Batterson cites the life and record-setting career of the late UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, who lived by the dictum “make each day your masterpiece,” as an example of someone who took to heart the “seize the day” mentality. This encouraging message to “give your dead yesterdays a eulogy” will appeal to any Christian reader of self-help. (Dec.)
