Today I’m so excited to review an ebook by the lovely blogger @planningwithem. I first heard about this book via Twitter, and so when Em reached out I was so excited to get reading and hopefully find some helpful tips to improve my productivity this New Year!

Em’s ebook is called “Perfect Productivity: How to Beat Procrastination, Master your To-Do List and Avoid Burnout” and I definitely need help with all of those things so I was really excited to read Em’s chapters about productivity, her recommendations for the right apps to use, and finding the best resources.
I really enjoyed reading this book, and Em definitely gave me some fantastic ideas for staying productive and sticking to my schedule. I’m at a stage now where I need to be a bit more savvy about how I use my time- and make sure I’m focusing on my blog as much as possible! So Em’s ebook is brilliant for coming up with some strategies to improve my productivity, and keep to my schedule in a way which will best benefit my blogging goals.
I also love that Em provided the “psychology” of procrastination right at the start of the book, as it shows that procrastination is more about indecision than laziness- and that certainly made me feel better about my constant procrastinating!
Em provides tactics to get better at handling this procrastination, and I loved her strategy to sort out which tasks are worth starting with- and how to make sure you know everything you need to do, and what should be a “priority” task. She broke down the strategies really well, and I think this was one of my favourite parts about the book- I now have fantastic strategies to follow every day if I need them!
I think the resources in Em’s book are fantastic, and she provides schedule sheets and templates- as well as a sleeping schedule to keep on top of burn-outs and make sure that as well as being successful you’re also looking out for your physical and mental health. And this is something Em comes back to throughout her book- it is important to be productive, but it is equally important to look after your health.
Reading this book, it’s clear Em really knows her stuff. As well as being a productive (and busy) person, Em has also put in the research to back up her claims. For me, she is very relatable as another 20-something blogger and graduate.
Have you read Em’s ebook? What are your strategies for staying productive? Do you have any steps to avoid procrastination?
