The publisher, Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point, provided me with an ARC of this nonfiction book, You Goal, Girl: A Goal-Setting Workbook, in exchange of an honest review.
Nowadays, most people multi-task constantly. They have a long lists of tasks they need to perform and goals to meet. I’m no different. I’m a full-time student, avid reader, critique partner, and I’m also either writing my own books or editing them. I was so glad the publisher granted my wish on NetGalley and approved my request to read this book.
Based on the title and description, I was expecting a book that guides us on how to make doable goals and how to actually meet them. Most of us believe we’re Superwoman and we can do everything in record time. Sadly, we’re not. This book helps readers understand what a realistic goal is, see how we can achieve them, and find a way to hold ourselves accountable. Last but not least, it also offers worksheets that are beautiful, effective, and easy to use. And don’t worry; it has many examples of the sheets so you have a lot of space to strategize over your goals and set the steps needed to achieve them.
I found it delightful and light-hearted. The authors create a friendly and easy-going atmosphere throughout the book, maintaining a perfect balance of “doing the work” without making it feel like a chore. It makes goal-setting fun and optimistic while providing the information readers need to achieve their goals no matter what and how complicated they are. The only reason why I’m not giving it 5 stars is that there was no ground-breaking moment or advice. Maybe, there isn’t any out there, or maybe, I’m too organized and goal-oriented myself. This doesn’t mean, however, that I didn’t learn anything new or that it didn’t help me.
All in all, You Goal, Girl: A Goal-Setting Workbook is delightful and immensely helpful! I strongly recommend it if you wish to be more effective and productive in your daily life or if you juggle a lot of tasks/jobs at the same time and need help with prioritizing and setting manageable goals.
4 stars – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
