Synopsis: Practical thoughts about working efficiently and effectively, making the most out of the time you have.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to read The Savvy Solopreneur’s Guide to Productivity for quite a while now. Other commitments have cropped up, but I finally took a chance to read it this past week! I’m afraid I wasn’t able to devote quite as much attention to it as I would have liked, but there were a few key things that I thought would be quite helpful—no matter where one is in the creative/marketing/business spectrum. We all want to make sure our time counts, that we are making good use of our resources and energy—and for some, I think this book would be helpful.
Starting out with a discussion on what goals ought to be (and how to make the best ones possible for yourself), Karen shares how sometimes just starting moving and adjusting later is the best idea. Then she talks about how it’s a good idea to do things you are excited about, otherwise you’ll tend to procrastinate a lot more—as well as not being able to deliver as well to the people you’re serving. She also talks about figuring out what you actually ought to be doing, so you don’t waste as much time on the things that don’t work.
There are several other things she covers here as well, but I’ll let you discover them for yourself. I thought this book would be a great help to anyone looking to be a bit more specific and focused in their work, or wanting to learn how to handle their time a little more effectively. There were some good things to think about in here for writers as well as business owners, and I came away with a few ideas to mull over and implement. In all, The Savvy Solopreneur’s Guide to Productivity is a good resource, although I’d personally love to see a few more tips and ideas than what was shared here. I did feel like most of the tips could be found elsewhere if one were to search for it, but if you like having things put together, this could be a good choice for you. For the length of the book, I feel like there’s a good amount shared.
I requested a free review copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it.
