Should an undisciplined person read Say Goodbye to Survival Mode?


I am so very thankful for how many bloggers have taken the time to review my new book on their blog. I especially loved this review from Candace at Mercy is New.

Here’s a snippet:

I’m sure many of my readers have heard of Crystal Paine’s new book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode: 9 Simple Strategies to Stress Less, Sleep More, and Restore Your Passion for Life! I was blessed to receive an Advanced Reader’s copy at Allume in October and I finished the book in January, so I thought I’d share my thoughts here with you!

I decided to read this book in January because I’m working on SETTING and KEEPING several goals in several areas of my life right now. I will admit, I am a VERY undisciplined person. The thought of goals and actually keeping them is kind of something I gave up on a long time ago. Ugh. I hate even admitting that…but it’s true.

Read the full review.

    Thanks for posting this review from someone who is not a Type A personality. I think I may actually buy the book and start readying, but then I thought of the unread stack of books by my bed and how I would like to get through that pile first. Then I realized, if I read this book first, maybe I can prioritize my time better, set goals and get all the books read eventually instead of looking at them each night and then deciding that sleep is more precious to a mom of four as I turn out the light 🙂 ! I a going to start with your book and go from there! Great review to encourage the undisciplined procrastinator.

    Yes get it. I am Type B and then some. Excuse me I need to go back to decluttering. It’s kind of over due and the book helped motivate me to start.

  • Candace says:

    Crystal, thank you so much for sharing my review here! 🙂 I know there are others who will appreciate your book that are in my same position…it truly has useful information for EVERY personality type, and actually, maybe even more so for folks like me who aren’t naturally disciplined or goal-oriented. CONGRATS on making it to #8!!! Woo-hoo! Looking forward to hearing you at Teach Them Diligently, too.

    I love that you’re posting all these reviews! I’m excited to read it, but waiting for my library to carry it as purchasing is just not in the cards right now.

  • JOYCE KACZOR says:

    My Library can’t get it, so it would be great if you could send me a copy of your book. Thanks, Joyce
