Praise for Get It Done

Sam Bennett’s “Get It Done” book is less like a self-help book and more like a conversation with that really great friend who gives you that really great piece of advice at just the right time. If you constantly find yourself putting off those creative projects or are simply too afraid to get them started, Sam’s wisdom will ever-so-gently nudge you towards completion. I mean, you’re working on finishing one of your projects by the end of the first chapter! Talk about results! If you’ve ever wanted to feel encouraged or inspired or nurtured or championed in your own personal creative endeavor, THIS is the book for you.” – Stefan on Amazon

 

Like Steve Pressfield’s three breakthrough books, Sam Bennett hears you, knows you, is you. She has been in your shoes, felt your fear and been as stuck as you have. In an astonishing act of generosity, she’s shared all of that in this magnificent book. Sure, the publisher gave it a tactic-filled subtitle that it doesn’t deserve, and sure, it’s on a shelf filled with completely unhelpful blather, but please, give this one a chance. It might just change your life.”

This book is a treasure. A fun, quick and easy read, it is hard for me to put it down. Bennett describes procrastinators accurately and also defines why they procrastinate. She suggests we (yes, I’m a prime example) don’t really care about the project, or it hasn’t been the right time for a certain project, or we are a little scared to start, or we can’t make ourselves do it. Sound familiar? She then describes exercises that help the procrastinator choose which project to keep, which to discard, which to put off for later. Just doing this is helpful and freeing.” – Marilyn Dalrymple on Amazon

 

Sam Bennett is a genius — really.

Get It Done is the book you will come back to time and time again for inspiration, pro- found truths, humor, and one-of-a-kind practical tools. Bennett’s wit, poetic words, and loving thwacks upside the head are just what every creative person needs. Hearing her words is like sitting down with your best friend and receiving the advice your soul has been longing to hear.”

— Amy Ahlers, author of Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves

Almost every writer or artist needs the help in this book to gain confidence, make time for their projects and get them completed. In addition to the proven advice in this book, Sam’s wonderful humor and supportive personality come through on every page.” – Lisa Tener on Amazon

 

Whether you are just toying with the idea of pursuing a creative interest for the first time or you are already established in a creative field, Get It Done gets you excited to start prioritizing and pursuing your ideas.

Bennett is refreshing in her positivity and achieves something rare — a how-to book that is funny and entertaining to read, and makes you feel good! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go write an Oscar-winning screenplay. Or clean my room. One of the two — I’ll figure it out.”
