Design Your Day by Claire Diaz-Ortiz

The book, Design Your Day by Claire Diaz-Ortiz is such an excellent help to organizing your life! It includes tips and ideas to help you organize a plan that will help you achieve and reach your goals. There are also great ideas to help you start writing and figuring out what to do to first to start reaching these goals. Some of the ideas inside this book will allow you to start off by planning on the crazy ideas you may have, get them out and placed on paper before you tempt it and realize that it wasn't a great choice to try. Then you can place down some things that might help and improve your chances to get what you want to achieve or have. Of course, this is just one of the planning options inside the book, getting all ideas out on paper in front of you. There are so much more that you'll find inside, making it easier to understand what it takes to what you want or need.
I feel the author really takes the hard part out of your planning and helps you decide what to do first before making a move towards the final goal or plan you have made. This actually might save you before goofing up or ending up not achieving anything or taking longer to get it. So basically, I feel the book makes you understand how to approach what you want to get or achieve and how to get there. It's a book that supplies you with the plans and ways to work your way to whatever you may want to achieve. I think the best part is that the author separated this book into two sections, deciding and organizing. So you know to start by deciding your goals and strategies you'll do to achieve them. 
However, the part that is about organizing actually has this method called DO LESS. This actually has something to do with working less and getting more done, better and faster than taking on more and in return getting less done. It actually makes working on things a whole lot easier and  allows for anyone to have more time for themselves verse less. That part  is something everyone should read!  Finally, I found that part to be very enjoyable no matter the age, this can work for so many people. I really like the idea that if you do less and still you'll be achieving more with her helpful reasoning and ideas on how too. In my opinion, it's just an excellent book and ssomethingI so needed since I'm starting to take on, so many new responsibilities and trying to reach my goals that are still in the works.
