"Rating: 5/5 starsBefore I start, two things about me: One, I might be the biggest procrastinator in the entire universe.Two, I am not the biggest fan of self-help books, however, I have found them necessary in the last few months.While I am still struggling to reach the seventh chapter of Antoni De Melo's Call To Love (which might be due to a poor translation) and yes, I am still putting Joe Barry's Panic Away Program to the test, I successfully tackled Design Your Day within a day (pun not intended, if it is, in fact, a pun).ATTENTION UNIVERSE: Mrs. Diaz-Ortiz deserves all the awards for this book.When I stumbled onto this book on NetGalley, I KNEW that I had to read it. I felt like it was written for me.Now, let me tell you a couple of reasons why I needed Design Your Day in my life, and therefore you need it in yours.First off, the writing. Mrs. Diaz-Ortiz has a one of a kind gift. She has the ability to explain complicated mechanisms with ease and wit which not only makes a usually-slow-moving-genre book interesting, it makes you excited to read the rest. It inspires you to try what it suggests.I started this book at six in the morning (thanks to my cat) with the intention to power through it, wondering if a rainy Saturday morning is the best timing for a self-help book. But I ended up finishing it in four hours AND I already had my WORD OF THE YEAR, as well as a brainstorming session. That's how inspiring it is.Second off, the theories and techniques Mrs. Diaz-Ortiz suggests. While it all sounds complicated and hard to achieve after reading the introduction, once you actually start reading, you'll see how simple it all is. Some day-to-day things we do can make a difference in your productivity.Third off, IT WORKS."Reviewed by Hristina Petrov, NetGalley, Dec 27, 2015
