Summary

Productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co. Tonya Dalton challenges women to rethink "busy" and intentionally live with a mind-set of abundance.

Overwhelmed. Too many women are swamped and exhausted by all they strive to do, ending most days feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful. Tonya Dalton, productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co., offers these women a liberating shift in perspective: Feeling overwhelmed isn't the result of having too much to do - it's from not knowing where to start.

In her highly anticipated first audiobook, Dalton inspires women to reject the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more. She shows them how to focus on what's important to them and then helps them develop their own unique productivity systems. Through her proven liveWELL Method, Dalton provides actionable strategies with relevant exercises that help women to discover their purpose, clarify their priorities, simplify their lives, and finally achieve harmony by embracing the "unbalance" that is inherent in their lives. As a result, women discover they can finally live guilt-free, abundant lives - because living a life centered around their priorities results in more satisfaction and success, both at work and at home.

The ultimate goal of productivity isn't to get more work done faster, it's to make you feel happier and empowered in your life as a whole. Productivity isn't just about your work - it's about your personal and home life, too. Included exclusively in the audiobook is a secret episode from Tonya Dalton's podcast, Productivity Paradox. Tonya shares the six key choices you can make in your daily life to find harmony in each of these areas, allowing you to reduce stress, boost productivity, and create happier families.

Referenced charts are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Have JOMO not FOMO!

I’m a magician... you know a wife, mom, full-time employee, daughter, friend, school and church volunteer, neighbor, and in charge of morning carpool... just a few things. Not much. Tonya describes me over and over again in her book, The Joy of Missing Out: Live More by Doing Less.

Because of her, I am now a recovering To Do List junkie. Before reading this book the only way I felt like I was truly accomplishing anything was by crossing off a task on my list. I'm one of those people who would add things that I already completed just because it made me feel better about my day. Now I focus on my priorities vs my to dos. Just one of the many game changers I took away.

This book was EXACTLY what I needed at this point in my life. It was real and forced me to look at my week (my 168 hours) differently. Tonya didn't just tell me what I needed to do though, she gave me the tools to work through how to make those changes. Day-by-day I'm implementing her suggestions. JOMO is truly a liberating shift in perspective and I highly recommend it to anyone feeling the pressure (and who isn't).

Even though I received an advance reader’s copy from Nelson Books for an honest review, I purchased the audiobook as well. Everything shared in this review are my own thoughts.

Loved this book.

I previously thought Tonya Dalton owned a planner company, but after listening to her book, I now understand she’s a productivity guru who offers tools to help people achieve their goals. I really enjoyed hearing all her thoughts and I’m looking forward to implementing a lot of her ideas so I can live centered on my priorities.

Sample was misleading

The Sample for this book was misleading. Every chapter sounds like and into to a book. I stopped listening after chapter 4

A must read

Amazing, life-changing! Tonya hits it right on the head with real tangible advice that is easy to implement. The resources that allow the reader to action immediately makes this a mini training and inspirational book all in one. Thank you Team Dalton for sharing this gift with the world.
