Top Customer Reviews
There are definitely some suggestions that I found valuable, unfortunately it was so wrapped up in how to micromanage your life, that it left me feeling a little anxious.
I want a way to evaluate what really needs to be accomplished, so that I can be more calm and more present with the people and things I value in my life. It just didn't fit what I was looking for.
The only thing I didn't like about the book, which was enough for me to detract stars, was something that a previous reviewer pointed out and I have to agree: she comes off a bit boastful. The number of times she reminds us of her success with the blog is a turn off. However, I do wonder if women readers are just not used to a woman saying, "Yep, I am successful." If the author was a man would anyone notice those remarks? I wonder. So while I totally applaud her success and I really enjoyed this book, there was a tiny whisper of me thinking "Get over yourself!"
The other thing that I wanted to point out was while you're reading it, I recommend doing the exercizes she suggests, like writing down your Best Things list, etc. Do them as you read through the chapter, at least I found that really helped me stay engaged and focused.
I liked that the advice was practical, that there were clear points to try. I also liked that the author gave many different routes to trying to get your life in order so you can find the set of ones that work for you.
I have followed Crystal Payne for many years on her blog MoneySavingMom and have been impressed with her minimalist God filled lifestyle, but she also keeps it real so I know I can attain what she teaches.
This book was so easy to read. I felt like I was having coffee with a girl friend just pouring her heart out to me, so transparent relating her struggles and successes to me. I can relate to so much of her personality . There aren't any earth shattering new ways to get more done in less time in this book. What Crystal does share is that the best ways to get something done is just to start where you are and keep it simple. I just finished a busy season in my life and even though I needed to move on with other projects, I was floundering with getting started. Crystal gave the loving guidance I needed on how to pick up and get on with myself.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is overwhelmed, tired or in a rut. Even though the primary audience is Moms, I think anyone that needs to get their life, health, marriage, family, house or finances back on track will find value in her simple steps.
First of all, let me just say that I love the way that Crystal writes. That is probably why I've followed her blog for so long. She is such a genuine person and you really get to know her through her writing. You feel like she is a close friend because she is so candid and sincere.
Secondly, even though some of the content of the book is stuff I've already read on her blog, it was so nice to have it in this format. And there really was a lot of new information I hadn't seen before. The book really is a how to guide on getting your life in order and explains clearly how to do the best you can to accomplish your goals and live a life of passion and get out of just trying to keep your head above water. Throughout the book Crystal shares her own stories and those of others which really help solidify the ideas in the book. She gives you concrete practical directions on how to implement each chapter's advice.
Overall, I was really impressed with the book. It was very motivating without being overwhelming, I think because she stresses giving yourself grace. Cannot wait to lend it to friends and family who are living in "survival mode"... and aren't we all at some point in time?
