Professor Cassie Holmes visits Google to discuss her book "Happier Hour: How to Beat Distraction, Expand Your Time, and Focus on What Matters Most." Cassie argues that our most precious resource isn’t money. It’s time. We are allotted just twenty-four hours a day, and we live in a culture that keeps us feeling “time poor” —like we just never have enough. Since we can’t add more hours to the day, how can we experience our lives as being richer? Is it possible to spend our days so they aren’t just full, but are fulfilling?

Based on her wildly popular MBA class at UCLA, Cassie demonstrates how to immediately improve our lives by changing how we perceive and invest our time. “Happier Hour” teaches you how small changes can have an enormous impact, helping you feel less overwhelmed, more present, and more satisfied with your life overall. It all starts by transforming just one hour into a happier hour.
