Book Review: No Plaid Suits
Reviewed by Tomi Alo
Insightful and encouraging—No Plaid Suits guides you toward self-fulfilling choices and living the life you desire
In today’s world, we strive to be busy. There is pressure pushing down on us in our daily lives. We lose ourselves in the midst of this chaos and can end up feeling stressed and suffocated. We have so many things we want to accomplish every day, but there is never enough time to do that and to have time for ourselves.
No Plaid Suits serves as a guide, or map, designed to help individuals develop resilience, a strong growth mindset, and an unstoppable life. The book demonstrates how small but deliberate actions can go a long way in making our daily lives easier and less cluttered, which in turn will leave us with more meaning and satisfaction.
There are four sections in the book, and each one touches on different aspects of life. Although the chapters are brief, they are packed with valuable information. This makes the book easy to pick up in small intervals during the day, like before work or before bed.
My favorite chapter in this book has to be the “Time AKA (scheduling)” chapter, in which author Amrita Rose introduces us to the “Easy-as-Pie 3-Step Scheduling Template.” It explains how to organize that lengthy, never-ending to-do list effectively. What an enlightening process and a strong way to stay on top of daily activities.
Amrita Rose’s writing style is friendly and warm, like having a kind and thoughtful conversation with an older and more experienced friend. Using years of personal experiences, positive psychology and wisdom, she guides the reader on a self-reflecting journey that encourages readers to create new systems and make different self-reflecting decisions that make an impact on your every day.
A nice touch to the end of each chapter is a list of practical tips that enable the reader—regardless of how busy their life or career is—to incorporate changes in their daily routine. The author even goes further to include additional reader resources at the end of the book for those who want to go further and deeper into building their resilience and taking this self-care journey to another level.
No Plaid Suits is a thought-provoking and inspirational book that offers a welcome respite from the constant pressures of our daily lives. I would recommend it to anyone looking to rediscover themselves through time management and positivity.
