Badass Habits Review || Jen Sincero
I, Johanna, confess to being a Badass Habits drop-out. This book was part of a book club for a small business marketing coach that I adore, Windy Lawson. I wanted to be a good student and read the book and seem hella-smart and witty during book club. I couldn’t do it. Okay, I could have done it, but it did not reach the must-read priority stack.
From the parts of it I did read, I could see it providing value and the swift kick in the tush that you need to start cultivating some habits to help your business. Jen Sincero has a writing style that makes you feel like you are a part of her head’s internal dialog that sometimes aligns with the internal dialog in your own head. She doesn’t take herself too seriously but makes serious content easy to digest.
Layout and/or interesting features
The 21-day challenge, 21 Days to Badass Habits, has some amazing prompts and will help you hold yourself accountable. Do them. Lean into the things that feel weird and less like yourself. As James Clearing discusses in Atomic Habits, doing the work makes the habits stick.
This book was not my cup of tea. It could be that I have already embraced a lot of healthy professional and personal habits over the last year + or it could be the element for the “area for improvement” listed in the next section. I got more out of The Bullet Journal Method and Atomic Habits than I did with my Badass Habits review.
Area for improvement
I’m not too fond of the font types used in this book. It made reading it a challenge for me. I know I am a weirdo, but I cannot be the only human that dislikes Jen Sincero’s branding. Am I? Drop me a line and let me know if it bothers you.
Would I read it again?
Well, perhaps I should read it through first before trying to reread it? Ha! One of my great business buddies, Katie, had an insightful comment though – – use it to drop a bad habit! That might motivate me to at least focus on the 21-day strategy.
What should I read next?
Let me know! I need some suggestions. I have a couple of marketing books to tackle and would like some ideas besides the textbooks I read for grad school. Comment below or drop me a line!
