About

Michael Hyatt

If you’re like most of my readers, you’re already a high-achieving leader. You’re committed to making big contributions at work—and seeing big results. But you’re not just looking for one-dimensional success. You also want to thrive in the other domains of life:

  • Your relationships with family and friends
  • Your health
  • Your spiritual and intellectual growth
  • Your hobbies, passions, and interests
  • Your legacy in the lives of the people around you

You’re after long-lasting, multidimensional success. And that really matters. Winning in all of life’s domains improves the lives of everyone around you. Your team enjoys a more joyful, fulfilled leader. Your family rests assured that they’re No. 1 in your life. Plus you have the energy, creativity, and stamina you need to be your best at work and at home.

But there’s something in the way, isn’t there?

You want to live this vision of your life, but it feels like there’s no time for it. When you’re traveling for work, you miss your daughter’s soccer game. When you make the game, you’re constantly worried you’re missing something important at work.

The sense that you’re shortchanging one priority to serve another never ends. You feel like a juggler with fifteen balls in the air and, too often, important ones—like your health or your personal development—get dropped. Sound familiar?

I’ve been there, too.

I know what it feels like to be in over your head—to have your success outpace your ability to manage it, while still attending to the things that matter most. For years, I struggled to balance it all. And my success came at the expense of my health and my most valuable relationships.

The turnaround for me came when I realized the answer isn’t simply to get more done. Success is about getting the *right things* done. I discovered how to sync my daily activities with my most important goals and priorities. Since then, my life has never been the same.

I’ve continued to flourish professionally. Formerly the chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, I’m also a bestselling author, and successful entrepreneur. In fact, my business was recently named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies after experiencing 330 percent growth in just three years.

Michael & Gail Hyatt

But my favorite wins are at home. I’ve been married to my wife, Gail, for thirty-nine years and we’re more in love now than ever. We have five grown daughters, eight grandchildren, and an exceptional dog named Winston. To top it all off, I’m in my sixties enjoying the best health of my life.

It’s not a magic trick, and I’m certainly no superhero. I’ve simply discovered a way to do more of what matters and less of what doesn’t.

Can I help you do the same?
