About the Book

“If you feel like a hostage of your to-do list and struggle to find time for what matters most, this book will be a huge help.” —Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of When and Drive

We’re all familiar with the signs that things are getting out of hand. The week has barely started and already you’re playing catch-up. At the end of another busy day, your to-do list is longer than it was that morning, your inbox overflowing with other people’s asks.

At times like those, no matter how hard we work, it can feel like we’re spinning our wheels.

Enter GRIP: The Art of Working Smart, by Dutch entrepreneur and bestselling author Rick Pastoor. GRIP is a fresh and forgiving guide that helps you get things done and free up time for what’s important to you.

In the space of one year, Rick went from being a 25-year-old engineering hire to leading a team of 30 at Blendle, the New York Times-backed journalism startup. It was clear he needed a new way of working. And fast.

So, Rick started experimenting. He’d keep what worked, ditch what didn’t, and share with coworkers what he learned along the way. The result is GRIP: a flexible collection of tools and insights that helped the team do their best work. Now it can do the same for you.

An overnight sensation in Holland, this bestseller has helped thousands find clarity amid the chaos of our demanding times. Now available in English, for everyone who’s looking to reclaim their sanity and add direction to even the most hectic days and weeks.

Rick's friendly, no-nonsense approach makes it easy to dive in. The book’s pick-and-choose structure, complete with cheat sheets for each section, means you can start applying what you need straightaway.

GRIP walks you through:

  • Unlocking the power of everyday tools you’re already using like a calendar, to-do list, and email
  • Lowering the volume on distractions to find your focus
  • And freeing up room to think big and grow

So you can get started on making your dreams a reality.
