I just L.O.V.E reading… I can devour a book in a good few days if the book reels me in. This is why I wanted to start this Book Review feature. The NC Real Estate office are massive book lovers, and even more so, lovers of a self-help book. So here goes our newest feature…
‘Do Less, Get More’ was an impulse buy for me. I was searching the WHSmith non-fiction aisle for something uplifting to read with my burrito (priorities, OK!). Its midnight blue cover with gold sansei writing got me involved.
I’m so glad I picked it up. Shaa’s openness about how difficult it is to prioritise made her very relatable. She understands that actually it’s perfectly OK to have a lot on. Yet, hammers home the importance of doing the most important tasks efficiently.
There’s no point in wasting your time getting bogged down in the things you find difficult. Instead you can outsource those tasks or ask for help, or even better complete them in a way that you enjoy.
For me there is nothing better than having a meaningful conversation with someone or writing. However, spending time fussing over perfect design isn’t me. So, can you guess what I do and what I ask Lorenza to do as she is far more creative then me?
Essentially the book advises you to play to your strengths, not force your weaknesses. Not only does that promote more success, but also increased happiness!
This book is full of actionable tips, simple formulas for success and really easy to read. I would recommend it, but only if you are interested in more of a guide than a biography.
My takeaways are, to time how long each task takes and then plan accordingly. Leave the less meaningful tasks until later because chances are you won’t need to do them.
