Crystal's ebook excited me to restart habits and goals I was swallowed up by. I'd like to read and study my Bible every morning, as well as get my home cleaned and organized. Crystal's advice breaks these goals into smaller chunks so I have a better shot at becoming successful. She is a great encourager if you do happen to fall off the wagon, and she also gives you successful tools to get you right back on that wagon. She has gleaned information from other organizing pros and includes those titles so you can read directly from the source.
Every Mom and wife will be encouraged to accomplish self discipline after reading this ebook. While I have read other books about self discipline, I haven't been successful. With the enclosed tips, I will surely be successful! Crystal's easy to read writing style and small chapters make this an easy read, especially for those with busy schedules.
I did structure my reading so that I read one chapter each day for 21 days. Each chapter is about three pages, plus an additional page follow up on a "mega project."
While the information in each of the chapters was okay and occasionally helpful, there were a couple of key factors that were very distracting to me.
First, the author seems to have assumed that the only readers of this book are women, so she used feminine pronouns and references. That's not really a problem, but some of the references included items about fixing your hair and doing your makeup. As a man with a shaved head, it was rather hard to relate.
Second, the references seemed to focus primarily around stay-at-home moms, with projects and tasks associated around that. That means that many of the recommendations included references to cleaning the house, organization, and planning around childrens' activities. Again, that's not really a problem if that's what you're looking for and expecting. However, the references to business tasks only seemed to refer to the work-at-home moms who run their own business or have complete flexibility in the work they do (such as talking about working early in the morning so that you can have more time available in the day for kids' activities). Even many of the work-from-home moms that I know do not always have that kind of flexibility - they may need to have a structured schedule to be available for client communications. The inclusion of directly work-related recommendations were a small percentage of the recommendations.Read more ›
Celina, homemaker and mother to 3, who struggles every day.
Crystal Paine is one of my favorite bloggers and she has written a new eBook based on her own struggle with self-discipline that is definitely worth your time! From the very beginning of the book I felt like she was describing me and my struggle!
"Instead of addressing the root issue -- my own, personal lack of self-discipline -- I convince myself that a fancy new system or a change in circumstances will fix the problem. But here's the reality: A bad system is not the problem. My circumstances are not the problem. I am the problem." (page 7)
Crystal breaks down the daunting problem of lacking self-discipline into a 21 day process of identifying and solving the issues that plague so many of us, making it attainable. Each day is filled with simple tasks and suggestions that overtime will foster an environment of self-discipline, and the wisdom in these pages is amazing. After 21 days of focusing on these things, you will be better equipped to be more self-disciplined in every area of your life!
The days include topics like: "Be Realistic"..."Stop Comparing Yourself to Others"...and "Do It Now"...all things that I need to focus on daily!
I have a feeling this is a book that I will come back to again and again.
I received a copy of this eBook for review from Moneysavingmom.com. The opinions expressed are my own.
