Publisher's Summary

Creative people tend to see the world a little differently from everyone else. But that doesn't mean they can't zero in on their goals, get focused, get organized, and not only accomplish what they want to achieve but earn money doing it.

In Get It Done, a beloved teacher and successful writer, actor, and comedian helps you get a handle on your own particular - even peculiar - creative process and harness your energies in positive, productive, and income-generating ways. Sam Bennett's innovative exercises, inspiring true success stories, and bonus online components will shift your thinking and prompt the kinds of insights that turn underperforming geniuses into accomplished artists.

Very good ideas for the busy person

I have been practicing Time Management techniques for several years, yet I wanted to get to the next level. This book helped me do that. It has a collection of well described and well reasoned techniques that helped me to "Get it Done".

Going to read or listen to this again

Sam narrates this audiobook in an effective way. She's realistic, clear and to the point in getting it done. What I love about this book is that it centers itself around creative people. I'm a composer, but also have a full-time tech job, and a family that keeps me busy. I found her methods apply directly to me, as simple as sitting down for 15 minutes and DOING it! I also love her take on perfection, and you will too. I highly recommend this book for those who are striving for the balance in their life.

Doesn't deliver what it claims

Struggled to get only halfway through this. After a while, there were so many repetitions of the same point in more or less the same words.

Quite often, the examples used sounds like the whole book is targeted specifically for younger, females working in the creative industry. And only them.

There's even a part where the author drones on with an exhausting list of possible daily activities. Instead of delivering the point in 10 or even 20 seconds, that "list" is clearly there for an unnecessary and incessant dramatic effect which goes on for several annoying minutes.

If you want a book that can help you do what the title of this book claims, look elsewhere.

Love Get It Done and Sam

This book has enormous value I keep reading listening to over and over again. I love Sams voice and her reading of her work. It’s like listening to a good friend. Her book is jammed packed w gems. She gives great example. Breaks things into simple and easy steps to do to get unstuck. Get it! You will not be disappointed. Loved so much after listening I had to buy a hard copy too! Star**

Practical Action Steps for the Procrastinator

The book is full of practical action steps for the chronic procrastinator. The steps can be applied not only to those creating art, but towards any project, no matter how small. Well worth a credit! (And while this review does not perfectly sum up my thoughts on this great book, it is in line with my new Sam Bennett goal to “just get a C”!)

Life Changing!

I ended up buying this book in print after listening to the audio book. I NEEDED this tangible advice in my hands so that I could refer back to it often. It looks like this book may become as well used as my Bible. Thank you Sam Bennett for digging in to my crazy glorious out of control brain and first, validating it, and secondly, giving it hope and piece.
And now I'm off to go sit in the tub and listen to Sam read me Start Right Where You Are. Toodles!

Helped me the most!

I can help but listen to this over and over. it's as if she really "gets me". and I am not an artist! Not in the sense that she is talking about, but every word is helpful in some way. of all the self development books I've listened to, I got the most out of this one.

A great guide to how to stop stopping yourself

I found this book very helpful . I have read many self help books and stopped half way through but with this title i bought the book as an aide memoire to the audible book. I found her through a chance viewing of a video clip and have been hooked ever since. I even bought a journal for my excercises etc and refer to it often, The weekly review task I complete each sunday.
This book has a lot of helpful suggestions and Sam really gets people and the way they think act and work.
