A good starting point for those wanting to kick start their productivity.

This ebook had links and downloadable content, which gives lots of value.

Using the S.M.A.R.T goals format, the book takes the reader through ways of setting and achieving those goals.

It’s a great little goal planner; breaks down the goal setting process well. Beginners will benefit from it, but if you’ve read a few goal setting books, you’d know most of this already. Still, I liked the way it’s laid out & presented.

I really enjoy this Practising Productivity Planner that is full of great exercises. There are various exercises to help you with identifying your values, setting SMART goals, tracking your progress, and more. I really like the idea of making a formal commitment to myself to help me achieve my goals, tracking challenges and milestones, and making a plan for every day, week, and month. A great book! Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. This is a great book to help increase productivity through proven techniques. I appreciated the free digital copy being available at the beginning since it made it easier for me to follow along with the activities. However, the font on the subtitles and chapter titles was difficult to read at times especially with the chapter title having colour contrast in the mix too which can be impossible for some people to read.

This was a really helpful guide to setting up and maintaining goals. I found it to be very informative and engaging. It kept everything in simplified and easy to follow along. I also liked how it provided examples to show just how to use some of the worksheets.

The Practicing Productivity Planner is a comprehensive guide to goal-setting and planning, with a unique framework that helps you connect emotionally with your goals. Some of the concepts I was already familiar with, like SMART goals, but I really liked how it was formatted. It would be especially good for anyone new to the idea of planning or coming back to it after a while. It's perfect for anyone who wants to get things done and achieve their dreams, regardless of their level of discipline, direction, or organization.

It's a bit of a diluted version of all common goal-achieving books and planners but it's worthwhile for anyone getting started in this.

This planner is split into creating your goals, and then achieving them. I appreciate that there is a massive focus on creating the goals because I've found this to be the most important part.

With the regular goal techniques, there's nothing new or revolutionary, but it's laid out well. It has the usual SMART goals, making them the right amount of challenging, creating milestones, writing things down, and committing to the plan (with a template for signing a contract with yourself).

I loved the questions to uncover your values, and I love the name.

"The Practising Productivity Planner is for anyone who wants to get things done. Whether you struggle with motivation, discipline, direction or organisation, the tools and frameworks here will help you to set meaningful goals, commit to them, and follow through with a clear plan for how to achieve them".

This informative book in ebook form has links to the productivity pages he outlines in the text. Great for those unfamiliar with the SMART method of planning. As a bullet journal planner, these insights have become a useful tool to me. I recommend to anyone wanting to evaluate living skills and plan for the year. Beneficial for business, home living, finances, etc.

I like how the daily planner in this book helps break down goals into small actionable steps, and it's encouraging to tick that column marked complete!
I got this book yesterday, and tried it this morning for some tasks that I had to get done, and the sense of satisfaction I've got by completing half of what I had set out yesterday just makes me smile.
Thanks Netgalley for the eARC. This is the book I'd recommend to anyone who is struggling with getting things done, and even tracking their growth. For writers who are participating in the upcoming NanoWrimo, this is something to try.
