Publisher's Summary

Turn your good intentions into action.

Whether you run your own business or work for someone else, you've probably got a lot on your plate. Along with the portion of your work that you truly feel like doing comes a generous helping of things you'd rather not do.

As consultants, Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper have seen countless clients struggle - and often fail - to do the many success-producing things they know they should do but don't feel like doing.

The Power to Get Things Done will teach you how to consistently turn your good intentions into action so that you can be as successful as possible in the work you do.

Don't feel like filing those pesky tax forms or making the follow-up calls you've been putting off? The Power to Get Things Done will show you how to get yourself - and keep yourself - in gear.

Levinson and Cooper offer you a host of practical solutions, including:

  • The smart way to think about and treat your own good intentions
  • Three key principles of following through that will change everything
  • Simple but powerful principles and strategies that will turn you into a follow-through champion

    "Terrible"
    Would you try another book written by Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper or narrated by Fred Sanders?

    Repeat, repeat, repeat... for three hours... waste of money!


    What could Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    added more content to it.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Fred Sanders?

    anyone else would have been a bonus.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power to Get Things Done?

    a fair bit as it was quite repetitive.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, dont bother with this book.

    stop repeating things, deliver the same content in different format does not make it new.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Fred Sanders’s performances?

    not sure

    "life changing content if you want to follow throug"

    great book! This book isn't magical it's simply points out the simple yet growling tasks we do or don't do to hurt and or help our selves.

    "Clever in many ways"

    Narrator made the book. Changed the way I'll think about my never-ending task list. Much of the book seemed obvious but the some of the suggestions people use to motivate themselves gave me a different angle on how I'll approach the things I don't want to do.

    "Super repetitive and dissapointing"
    What disappointed you about The Power to Get Things Done?

    The repetitive nature of this and no solid suggestions .Silly things like hire someone to make you get it done. well duh, if we had the disposable income to do that I wouldn't need a book on how to stop procrastination on things I feel are boring and mindless and or not up my alley.


    Has The Power to Get Things Done turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO, there has got to be a book out there that gives suggestions in other than common sense manner to get things done that you feel are just mind boggling boring or tedious.


    What aspect of Fred Sanders’s performance would you have changed?

    Stop with repetition. Actually have some substance to your book with decent stories.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    definitely disappointed I wasted so much time listening to it hoping it would get better.
