‘Perfect Productivity’ by Emily Wyatt

AD- I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review. This post contains affiliate links, and if you decide to purchase a copy of this book I earn a small amount of commission at no extra cost to you!

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.

If you’d like to check out this ebook, you can find it over on Em’s *Gumroad page. She has a sale on this January, so make the most of that by buying *your copy now!

Have you read Em’s ebook? What are your strategies for staying productive? Do you have any steps to avoid procrastination?

  1. Your review is lovely. I’m so glad you enjoyed this book! For me, I am pretty much blogging full-time and I like to work from about 9 am – 2 pm, take a break and just do social media engagement then once I’m all done cleaning and dinner, I’ll work for a few more hours until I’m off to bed! I’m not productive if I’m working a 9-5. I need an in-between refresher πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing x

  2. I’ve seen this come up a few times and considering I’m literally all over the place right now, definitely sounds like I need to check it out. Would be worth it just for the sleep schedule the way I am at the moment. Great review – always helpful to see it as a proper review as well as people shouting about it on Twitter – thanks!

  6. I think I need this in my life, I think I could learn a lot from it. And the indecision bit makes so much sense to me, it’s always the days I struggle to prioritise that I achieve the least even if I have a bigger to-do list on other days x

  7. I will read this book! I am on a quest to beat procrastination, I am 35 year old and have accomplished nothing due to this terrible monster. It would have been interesting reading what you took away from it, and if you implemented some changes after reading it. I just wrote about my first things I did to beat procrastination. Bit embarrassing as I am 35.

    1. I really recommend it πŸ™‚ I find it really hard to stay productive too, and I think the main thing I’ve implemented from this book is how to improve habits and actually understand how and why I am procrastinating, and what it means. I love how Em makes it clear you’re not lazy just because you’re procrastinating. Hope you check it out and good luck!
