Design Your Day


“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” ~Yogi Berra


Design Your Day, by Claire Diaz-Ortiz, is a simple approach to setting and attaining reasonable goals. A highly motivating book.

First of all, I like the size of this book. It’s small and unassuming. No hours and hours of sifting through pages of a thick book, in search of the golden tidbits you’re looking for.

The organization is spot on. The two-part booklet helps you set, strategize, and organize smart goals. It gets down to the brass tacks, so to speak.

A quote in the conclusion section (page 125) really spoke to me:
“Each of us has an inner compass telling us why we’re here and what we want out of this time on earth…”

This quote is so true. The world is filled with people who have a variety of dreams, hopes, talents, gifts, and purposes. The first step in reaching our goals and purposes is to discover what they truly are. Next, we need to find the best ways for to attain them.

With vision and direction, we can design our days to have a more meaningful and purposeful life. This books guides the reader to attain goals by defining them, developing routines, discovering our best time of day to work, etc. Its simplistic design is powerful and inspiring.

If you are searching for ways to be more productive, set purposeful goals, and inspiration to be your own motivator, this book is a priceless tool. I found it stirring and encouraging. Its a great go-to for reevaluating goals, as well.
