Description

This is a book for working women and mothers who are ready to release the culturally inherited belief that their worth is equal to their productivity, and instead create a personal and professional life that's based on presence, meaning, and joy. As opposed to focusing on "fitting it all in", time management, and leaning in, as so many books geared at ambitious women do, this book embraces the notion that through doing less women can have - and be - more.

The addiction to busyness and the obsession with always trying to do more leads women, especially working mothers, to feel like they're always failing their families, their careers, their spouses, and themselves. This book will give women the permission and tools to change the way they approach their lives and allow them to embrace living in tune with the cyclical nature of the feminine, cutting out the extraneous busyness from their lives so they have more satisfaction and joy, and letting themselves be more often instead of doing all the time. Do Less offers the listener a series of 14 experiments to try to see what would happen if she did less in one specific way. So, rather than approaching doing less as an entire life overhaul (which is overwhelming in and of itself), this book gives the listener bite-sized steps to try incorporating over two weeks!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Wanted to like it more

After reading Kate’s first book I was excited for this one. As someone struggling with chronic never enough syndrome I was hoping it would help me work through some of those emotions. Instead I found the material hard to relate to. So much would be easier to connect to if there weren’t multiple mentions of 7 figure incomes and the unreality that comes from not struggling to make ends meet. It would be easier to do less if there weren’t financial stressors or other factors like lacking a support system. This book felt like it was not written for your average person. Overall it was hard to connect to and left me feeling lesser than for not having the resources and connections necessary to “do less”.

couldn't get through it

So bad. I kept trying to listen for the point, but couldn't get past all the pseudo science. Things she states as facts have very weak evidence if any at all. useless book.

You Get To Choose

Great daily deal of $1.95 to help you choose the YOU you want to be. If you are looking to understand WHY you are not where you want to be, never in the moment, or trying to understand why you are doing more, but getting less satisfaction, then take advantage of this deal. It is a fairly short listen, eg Lightly by Francine Jay a great fave to actually change your life and Self Discipline by Jennifer Allison. These two books were daily deals that actually changed my life. Check them out. I found they helped me to physically do things so I could get to the point of understanding the meaning of this book. How great is that??
This book helps a person understand themselves if they REALLY want to get to a place of tranquility. The key here is tranquility, which many of us do not even understand what and where that place really is in our lives. I found this book is really about letting go of the I wants, dealing with the reality of your life, and most importantly understanding self esteem.
Regarding some of the examples in this book, remember, it is about dealing with what YOU have and not what others have.
Were my comments of help?

This definitely is not just meant for mothers...

This definitely is not just meant for mothers but for women in general. The book reminds you that you should show a bit of self-compassion while staying productive and - what's most importing - setting your priorities straight.

Totally new-to-me info & actionable

I love self-development books and feel like I've read every book on productivity. As a business owner and mom of three young kids, I'm always overwhelmed and looking for ways to make the best use of my time. I heard Kate on a podcast (Amy Porterfield's "Online Marketing Made Easy") and everything she said just resonated with me. I got the book on audible and probably blew through it in a few days. I loved Kate's narration (I've learned that I really don't like books that are not narrated by the author - there's just something more authentic when an author reads their own material.) I love the idea of planning out my month based on the energy I have, based on my cycles. If you're not cycling, due to pregnancy, menopause, etc, you can instead plan based on lunar cycles. When I put this into practice, I felt the guilt of "not doing enough" during my inward phase disappear. But then, during my outward phase, I felt more energy and ideas flowing and it all made sense. I'm in my 40's and wish I had learned this a long time ago! I now try to plan out, as much as is possible (Kate recommends a goal of 20% of activities) to plan out my schedule based on a monthly cyclical calendar instead of always trying to cram in as much all the time as I possibly can. That's not to say it's an excuse to be lazy - no no. But using our own energy in the most effective ways. I need more rest during certain times of the month, more self-care, and at other times of the month, I need to focus on hitting it hard and get things done. I've found it not only to be freeing, but also much more efficient with my time. Kate also has amazing bonuses and a FB group community where she's active. Overall, listening to this book has been a fabulous experience!

Inspiring ideas for modern conscious-leaning womxn

This book will appeal to all womxn (but directed at young mothers, as the author is one) that are aware of conscious living and conscious parenting. If you are not aware of this type of living or have some sort of spiritual beliefs, you will probably think it's a waste of time.

Kate Northrup introduces her own ideas about how our menstrual cycle links up with the moon, and how we can use this knowledge to create a more rich mother, work, and personal life. Beyond the lunar cycle, she gives good advice about generally living consciously in an easy to digest, friendly way.

I did feel a little disengaged at some points because although because I liked the information and the way she presented it, I also felt that she was very "white-priveleged, wealthy and first-world", which she is and that's perfectly fine. I simply felt disengaged for less than 10% of the book.

All in all, good info and most certainly left me feeling inspired to do something ... well, DO LESS to achieve more.

Push thru the first hour of “cycle talk” to get to the great content!

Ok - this book starts off talking about new moms and women’s cycles - and I almost turned it off in the first hour. Fight that urge! This is such a great book about time management, priorities, maximizing your most productive moments and appreciating being in the moment. Ms Northrup is very engaging but succinct. The entire book was only about 5 hours long and there wasn’t repetition or filler! I highly recommend this read to any female of any age and to any open-minded male who wants to achieve more by doing less.

Every woman should read this book!

Do Less truly captured my attention from start to finish! So many of the facets of our productivity and our cycles that Kate Northrup discusses gave me "aha" moments. She has really given every woman a way to slow down without sacrificing productivity. Whether you're a stay at home mom, student, or part of the workforce you will be able to use the material presented to simplify your life. Highly recommend!

Couldn’t Finish

I picked up this book because, as a working mother, I’m generally interested in techniques that other working women found effective. But when the author made a Rainman joke, I couldn’t listen to another word. It is quite obvious that I could not possibly learn anything from this woman except that mocking those with special needs is appropriate. I hate that I supported her by buying this book.
