About the Book

Nationally recognized productivity expert and bestselling author Tanya Dalton delivers a hard-hitting message that will motivate women to step into their purpose, invest in themselves, and boldly make their mark on the world.

Book Synopsis

Are you filling your calendar or are you filling your soul?

In her latest book, productivity expert Tanya Dalton helps you to define your purpose and live with intention--even if you feel you are too busy to pursue your big dreams. She offers cutting-edge research and thought-provoking real life stories of women and leads you through innovative, yet deceptively simple exercises designed to help you understand:

  • how to create a map to your ideal future;
  • actionable strategies to move forward with confidence;
  • simple shifts to turn unexpected obstacles into opportunities; and
  • daily steps you can take toward a more fulfilling life.

Dalton doesn't tell you what to think. She empowers you to choose how to think. She doesn't help you fit in with the status quo; instead she shakes the foundation of how you view the world. Because it's your world, and it's filled with opportunities you might not even realize are there.

Living On Purpose isn't about changing who you are. It's about rising up and becoming the best version of you--adjusting your mindset so you can discover your daily choices. On Purpose will help you find the unhurried purpose that is hidden in each one of your days when you stay true to your soul's path.

"It's time to choose to be awake in your own life"

5 out of 5 stars
Jblack - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
I'm a new entrepreneur, and I've been following (and loving!) Tanya's work for over a year now. Tanya is incredibly inspirational and outspoken about all the things I care about: women's empowerment, living intentionally, and managing ourselves. Tanya has a superpower for combining funny, relatable language and stories with no-nonsense, tough love truth bombs...all while distilling complex topics like productivity and goal setting into simple, easy-to-understand (AND easy to implement) processes. She's brought all that and more to On Purpose. Throughout the book, she demystifies feel-good but vague concepts like purpose, living intentionally, and personal power...and actually walks you step-by-step through how to start living them. The downloadable Reader's Guide is *insanely* thorough, and really helped me translate what I was learning while reading into insights and actions that I can apply to my life. This is NOT a book to read and then stick on a self. This is a manual for how to reclaim your life. In an age where our attention is constantly divided, On Purpose cuts through the junk and shows you how to reclaim your power, passion, and, yes, purpose to create a life you genuinely love. There's no way you can read this book and not feel empowered to make some REAL changes in your life!

A book that speaks to your soul!

5 out of 5 stars

This is not just another "success book" that sits on my bookshelf half-read. This is a book I looked forward to reading every evening. It became a delicious "me-time" experience! I recently learned about Tanya when I heard her speak at an online event. She was such an insightful speaker and cared so much about her audience. I knew that her book would be jam-packed with helpful insights and tips for her readers, so I bought a copy. This book exceeded my expectations. In "On Purpose: The Busy Woman's Guide to an Extraordinary Life of Meaning and Success", Tanya Dalton shows she truly understands the busy lives of women today and the blocks that stop them from creating the lives they want. Whether they are busy with career, family, community or all of the above, she speaks to the souls of women everywhere who want to feel alive, on purpose, and more fulfilled. I loved her conversational tone, her sense of humor, and the examples from her life and the lives of other women that I could identify with. Tanya helped me understand why I make the choices I do, what new choices I want to make, how to move forward, and how to handle those crazy curveballs that life will throw my way. I think my favorite chapter was Chapter 3 when she talked about adulting and how we "often end up living the way we think we are SUPPOSED to live, chasing other people's dreams or whatever it is we think we should be doing." Life doesn't have to be this way! I encourage you to read her book. She has a wonderful talent for helping you understand just how powerful you really are and then challenging you to claim your power and make choices in a way that will be a good fit for you!

In this new book, Tanya Dalton doesn't fail to hit all the points! How can we live...truly live...unless we focus on what matters most to us! Most of us don't look at the big things and where we want to be and the impact we want to make! SUCH AN IMPORTANT thing to do!!! Make time to read this book...you won't be disappointed!!!

Choose to Pursue your Purpose

Tanya Dalton has done it again. Her first book gave me the structure to start my business and this book has restarted my passion to take it to a whole new level. She shows time and time again the power of intentional action. In her last book JOMO, Tanya defines overwhelm as not knowing where to start. This book is a great start.

Angie McKain - 11 months ago
How often do we just let life go by like we have no choice of what happens to us? Not with this book. Tanya is amazing at helping you learn to live your life and take action on things intentionally and with purpose. This book will make you open your mind up and think about the possibilities and opportunities all around you that are there for the taking. If you want to be more mindful and intentional in designing the life of your dreams I can’t recommend this book enough!

A must read for moms who don't know what they want anymore!

5 out of 5 stars
Allison - 11 months ago
I'm a new mom who works from home full time, so free time is rare. I had lost sight of what I wanted for my life somewhere in the piles of laundy, dirty bottles, and work calls. Tanya's book helped me to not only dream and define my life but to also create a blueprint to getting there. The comprehensive reader's guide that is complimentary is worth the price of this book alone! It acts as your own therapist, uncovering truths I didn't realize were holding me back!

Your go-to for 2022 goal setting

Reading On Purpose feels like the author is right here with me chatting like an old friend. She leads us through reflecting on why we make the choices we do, what choices we want to make in the future, how we can move forward on those choices, and what to do when life gets off track. Which we know it will. I’ve already printed out the interactive reader’s guide to dive deeper and take action on the strategies she shares in the book. Her Action Road Map helps ease the feelings of overwhelm, keep us accountable with a progress check-in and makes our big goals achievable. Her Wayfinding Map helps us set our goals with priority landmarks. She also helps us determine if our distracting activities that we choose are negative or nourishing. Some of my favorite quotes: “Magic doesn’t happen when life is centered and balanced, it happens when we lean into priority.” “If something is a priority, I won’t put it off for Someday.” “We can live each day On Purpose by choosing how we want to spend our time and where we focus our energy.” “We can be so busy focusing on crossing that imaginary finish line that we end up missing all the meaningful moments in our everyday life.” “Overnight success is a bedtime story that isn’t based on truth.” “Numbers do not define you and they do not determine your worth.” No doubt this will be your go-to resource for achieving your goals in 2022. I highly recommend it and to grab your girlfriends together for book club to cheer each other on.
