Description

Productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co. Tonya Dalton challenges women to rethink "busy" and intentionally live with a mindset of abundance

Overwhelmed. Too many women are swamped and exhausted by all they strive to do, ending most days feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful. Tonya Dalton, productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co., offers these women a liberating shift in perspective: feeling overwhelmed isn't the result of having too much to do--it's from not knowing where to start.

In her highly anticipated first book, Dalton inspires women to reject the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more. She shows them how to focus on what's important to them and then helps them develop their own unique productivity systems. Through her proven liveWELL Method, Dalton provides actionable strategies with relevant exercises that help women to discover their purpose, clarify their priorities, simplify their lives, and finally achieve harmony by embracing the "unbalance" that is inherent in their lives. As a result, women discover they can finally live guilt-free, abundant lives--because living a life centered around their priorities results in more satisfaction and success, both at work and at home.

This book is perfect if you ever feel like you’re just juggling too much - from your work - even if you don’t work in an office - to home and personal life, this is a book that touches on EVERY area of life. I loved that it doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re in or what your job is - you could be fresh out of college, a stay at home mom, and entrepreneur, climbing the corporate ladder, or retired, and you would still be able to apply every tip and strategy Tonya shares. I love that she is relatable with wit and humor, while also sharing her biggest struggles and hardships. She basically will get inside your head and say what you’ve been thinking and wanting to say to yourself and to others. It’s honest, real and best of all… there’s action. When I finished reading this book, I knew what to do. I can’t say that often about a book… typically it’s just motivation or inspiration - but with The Joy of Missing Out, I can see a clear path ahead as it applies to ME and my life.

This book speaks to me! It’s like the author can read my mind. And to have a book with extras.. videos, links, and more completely fits into the way this brand has served its followers from the beginning. It’s more than a great book, it’s a community of encouragement, support, so that you can put into practice the nuggets you learn about yourself as you move through the chapters so that you can accomplish the goals you set out in the beginning. It’s more than a book, it’s movement, that I need, that my clients need and that my children need.

The Joy of Missing Out has changed the way I live my life and is helping me work towards the life I want. Like a deep conversation with a trusted friend, Tonya helped me reconnect with what I value most and gave me methods to help me live focused on what truly matters to me. I highlighted, wrote in the margins, nodded along and had numerous aha moments. She does not give you a rigid one size fits all answer to productivity but offers you solid systems and ideas you can make work for you. The book shares changes and choices you can start making right now, as well as how to add all the little steps together to make your ideal day your everyday. The discussion guide that comes with the book is a wonderful tool to help you connect and put into practice the ideas from the book. This is a book I will be reading and rereading for years to come.

So many aha moments for me!

I was lucky enough to get an advanced readers copy even though I had pre-ordered it and I'm soooo glad I got to read it early. This book has moments of "Aha!", "Yes!", "That's totally me!"on almost every page. I found myself nodding and laughing at how it feels like me. I am very much into productivity and trying to find the best setup for myself. I kept wondering why so many other books and processes didn't always quite work for me. This book explained it all. It is way more than a productivity book. It's about learning to say no to things/people and being okay with it. It's about saying no, because you're saying yes to your priorities and what truly makes you happy. With this, your productivity will follow. While I was reading, I found myself a lot happier and making more conscious decisions throughout my day. I'd end a day feeling way more productive, when previously I'd question what I did and if I did anything "productive". This book is focused on women and how we think and feel, however this book can be applied to anyone. Definitely planning to pass this on and talk about it to anyone who will listen. =) I'm also hoping my actions and happiness will also shine through. I'm not usually a re-reader, but I definitely will be re-reading this over and over. The discussion guides and other items included make this book also something I can implement for myself. LOVE THIS BOOK!

Amazing resources for getting your life together

The Joy of Missing Out not only helps you to decide what is important to you, but how to schedule your time to get the most important things done. The book is divided into 4 sections. Each one builds on the others and the further I got into the book, the more the concepts started to click. I love that Tonya doesn’t just tell you what to do, she tells you how to find what is right for YOU, because we each have our own lives and struggles and passions. We have to find our own “yes” and she tells you how to figure out what that looks like to you. But what makes this more than just a book are all the resources that go along with it. The discussion guide, email companion series, short videos, podcasts, and other downloads make it so that you aren’t just reading a book, you are planning out and taking action steps to make positive changes in your life. I can’t imagine ever being satisfied with just simply reading a book ever again. Every book should come with these kind of resources.

The permission you're looking for to give yourself a break from doing ALL of the things. Tonya gives you exercises that will help you figure out what is most important to YOU. Also tips on how to automate the daunting daily chores so you're not wasting precious decision making brain power on those things and have the energy to focus on the things that will move you closer to your North Star! *I received an ARC from the publisher but that in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

Re-Prioritize What's Most Important!

Tonya Dalton, founder of Inkwell Press, brings her schedule-slashing skills to the masses in this engaging book, "The Joy of Missing Out." Long an advocate of planners, organizing and putting the most important things first, Dalton has lots of experience that the reader can depend on. She lays out the book in an easy to read, simple format that teaches us how to eliminate stress by choosing that which is best for us, not just because we feel we must add one more thing to our overflowing plates. There are four main sections in the book: Pursue Discovery, Find Clarity, Create Simplicity and Achieve Harmony. Each section has three chapters that breaks the main topic down further to make it practical and applicable. Because Dalton has made a life helping others get organized and prioritized, she has a lot of great advice to give. I think this book would be a tool useful for anyone who feels as though they cannot stop saying yes to everything that seems good. She has a clear, decisive way about her writing that allows you to evaluate personally the choices you've made, while offering grace to eliminate that which doesn't prosper your life. If you've found yourself overwhelmed or treading water, "The Joy of Missing Out" is a book you need to read. There are also many resources on her website that tie in with the book, which I found extremely helpful while going through the book. She has polled women who try to do it all and asked about their specific struggles, allowing her to be well informed before trying to help solve the overarching problem of doing too much. I loved the fact that this book gave me permission to let go of things that I felt were really important, when, in fact, those things were only part of what was necessary. In dissecting all that we allow into our lives, the process of feeling free to release some less significant things in order to fully embrace the life we have was powerful to me. This book would be a wonderful one to work through in a women's group or in a work group, as the principles could be easily adapted to work for both women and men. I think the printables and website resources really helped to flesh out the book for me, so please look up those resources as you read. Being able to review afterwards was insightful! I was an early reader, thanks to Nelson Books. All opinions are my own honest feelings and I was not required to leave a review. Don't rush through this book--there's a lot to learn here! I also ordered a final copy for myself!
