No frills. No fuss. No bullish!t.
How To Get Sh*t Done is, hands down, the best productivity book that will transform your life.
Something that always bothered me about the other time management/productivity bibles, Â namely Get Things Done and Deep Work, was the complete omission of work outside of the workplace.
Cooking. Cleaning. Laundry. Bills and taxes. Managing their kidsâ€™ schedules.
You know. Work, of the home variety.
Women, by large, take on the lionâ€™s share of this work. And it is draining, time-intensive, and sometimes stressful. No productivity book has addressed this. Until now.
How To Get Sh*t Done is much more about the work/home work balance. Itâ€™s a purposeful guide that walks you through setting the right goals, prioritizing everything in your life to help you achieve them, and actually doing the work.
It addresses it all – personal relationships, workplace politics, dipping a toe in the outsourcing waters, and when to put blinders on vs. when to reassess.
Itâ€™s an honest, funny, and very real book. Erin Falconer doesnâ€™t hold anything back, from losing her most valuable possessions in her first days living in Los Angeles to being let go from her own company.
Itâ€™s warm. Itâ€™s funny. Itâ€™s the first productivity book that I felt understood me – as an entrepreneur, as a mother and wife, as a friend.
I highly recommend picking up a copy for yourself – and one for your best friend, and another for your sister.
Itâ€™s the gift thatâ€™ll keep on giving.
I highly recommend reading this book, The Big Life, and Drop The Ball (in that order). Things that help me get my own sh*t done – blocking out my entire day in iCal, going offline and writing my content in Evernote, and filling out my self-care checklist. A perfectly organized work bag, blue-light glasses, and this aromatherapy treatment also help.
