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.

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.

THE perfect book for an artist!

What did you love best about Get It Done?

I love Sam's ability to get her points across with humor and ease.

What other book might you compare Get It Done to and why?

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert...but in THIS book, Sam gives you easy, actionable steps that get you closer to connecting with your spirit and artistry without fear.

Have you listened to any of Sam Bennett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. But I would like to listen to more!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I wasn't able to completely, but did it in two days.

Any additional comments?

Sam's accessible and matter-of-fact delivery gave me the inspiration to step into my next dream and hone it down to a one-task-at-a-time project! Thanks, Sam!

So much more than just getting it done.

I really enjoyed this book...it was actually way more than just tips and tricks to get stuff done. It was inspiring and engaging...and I got a lot out of it. I already want to listen to it again so that I can absorb the information even more the second time around.

Simply Wonderful, does what it says it will and mo

What made the experience of listening to Get It Done the most enjoyable?

This book is good not only for creatives, but anyone who needs to learn a little bit of "be gentle with thyself" kindness! I listened to the whole thing twice, and will randomly listen to bits when I need a cheer up! That being said, it's ESPECIALLY good if you're a creative procrastinator!

What does Sam Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sam Bennett's the author and reader, I like to think this means we hear it "how it was meant to be heard"

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Write down the compliments you receive!

Any additional comments?

Simply lovely! Great "feel good" self help book!
