To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Part of the book is the author bragging about himself and what he has done. Part of the book is him telling you why you don’t get sh*t done and what is wrong with you. The final part of the book is some motivational talk about why you should get sh*t done but there is little in the way of tactics or ideas to get sh*t done. I am a big fan of Jeff’s and I loved his earlier work and Sales Manifesto...But this book left me wanting better.
This is not your run of the mill time management book. The book truly delivers on its title promise. I first came across Jeffrey Gitomer's sales books, but this book is not just for salespeople. It's for anyone who recognizes that the biggest obstacle to their success is themselves. Read it with a highlighter and notepad!
For those unfamiliar with Jeffrey Gitomer, he's written over a dozen books, including NYTimes best sellers. Many of his titles are in sales, but this one is personal/professional development. If the title offends you, overlook it to benefit from the wealth of ideas, challenges, and productivity techniques between the covers. I first taught seminars (for an author) in time management in 1974. Over the past decades working with clients, it is clear that most of us have productivity "defenses." Gitomer explains these and offers solutions that will help us create a private thought foundation for increasing our productivity. Loaded with quotes, lists, and provocative questions, this is the place to begin working on "what's stopping you" that diminishes personal effectiveness.
The book Get Sh*t Done has opened my eyes on how to ensure I achieve the goals I have in life. Gitomer has always been my go too on sales related books -- but this book takes it to whole new level, and can be applied all aspects of life. I love it.
