    5. Melek on said:

      The book is written in two parts Decide and Organize , so I ll review them seperately.The first part Decide was all right I liked the general ideas though, considering that they were far from being new or original SMART goals chapter, for instance , that may not have anything to do with this book itself Being the sometimes over organizer I am, the chapter Fine Tuning Your Goals had my heart, but I think Word of the Year isn t something a lot of people can apply to their lives.The second part Org [...]

      It s clear from the first sentence of Design Your Day, that author Claire Diaz Ortiz understands the plight of the modern day person there never seems to be enough time to accomplish the goals you actually WANT to do It s also obvious that she has an intimate understanding of what it s like to feel the weight of too many conflicting obligations, coupled with the daily curve balls that inevitably occur I found her simple message of learn to live your days well is inspiring and I believe you will [...]

      Just when I had almost given up on the notion that I would somehow make order out of the chaos that is my life, I found Claire s book, Design Your Day I must admit, I picked up her book with skepticism What did this book hold that every other book or article on organization didn t There are a lot of books out there about goal setting This one is special, Claire boldly asserts.Only a few pages in, I hoped her declaration would hold true By the end of the first chapter, I found out she was absolut [...]

    17. Bethany on said:

      This book isn t revolutionary by an means, the idea behind being productive and living purposefully is obviously a very popular theme check any self help section , but what I felt this book does and does well is really break down the absolute basics and zero in on the best ways to not only improve ones life but go from survival mode to thriving.I absolutely loved how to the point and succinct the whole book was, you can easily sit down and read it in an evening, although I don t necessarily ad [...]

    18. Samantha Thomas on said:

      A great read Clear and concise I did, however, feel like the focus was on setting good goals rather than actually designing your day.

      A small text about making sure you use days wisely and productively, but these are tips easily learned in other places Additionally, the religious overtones don t appeal to me.

    28. Jessica on said:

      Not much of the information was new, which in itself wasn t awful, as there was some good stuff However, it seemed like this book was written for someone with a very specific work environment, one that is super flexible, and for a lot of people, that s not the case I can t schedule work tasks at certain times of day just because it s when it feels right I have certain things to do at certain times and that s not something I can control If your work is like that too, then much of this will be unu [...]
