You Really CAN Stop Procrastinating

Everybody feels like a flake at one time or another, but if you constantly struggle with procrastination, fear, impulsiveness, and distractibility, this short, insightful guide is for you. You've read every productivity book out there, from Getting Things Done to 7 Habits. You've started a hundred new projects with plans for world domination, only to abandon them when you hit an obstacle or a shiny new idea comes along. And you've finally realized the problem: all of those books are written for normal people, not for flakes.

"Inspiring, practical, and funny."

In Getting Sh*t Done: A Complete Flake Guide, professional flake LaVonne Ellis shows you how to:

Be more productive in spite of yourself by focusing on what you love
Use simple strategies to get more done than you could ever imagine
Harness your two superpowers: creativity and hyperfocus

... and much more!... and much more!

"The insights into interruptions and task switching were particularly useful. I hadn't thought of it that way, but once I have momentum going on anything, I hate to switch to something else. It's completely disruptive. Now that I am more aware of that, I have a better chance of working with it, instead of against it." ~Linda Eskin

Are You a Perfectionist?

It's hard to believe that a complete flake could also suffer from perfectionism, but think about it: don't you get stuck, over and over, because you know you can't do the perfect job you see in your mind? That's perfectionism (and it's a bitch) but you can beat it.

"Some of it seems SO familiar I have to remind myself it's not a biography of ME. LOL!" ~Kathy Henderson-Sturtz

In this easy-to-read productivity guide, Ellis shares the latest research  (as well as wisdom from the trenches) about what really works to help you overcome perfectionism and resistance, face your fears, and get busy at last... doing the things you truly care about.

"I highly recommend [this book] if you struggle with beating yourself up for procrastinating, perfectionism, being too easily distracted, whatever -- cut that sh*t out and Get Sh*t Done!!" ~Karla Tucker

Note from the Author: I've struggled with procrastination, perfectionism, and lack of focus all my life, so I wrote this book for myself as well as for you. I gathered the most useful information I could find and personally tried it all out myself, adding strategies that work from my own experience.

Your mileage may vary, but if these techniques helped me to write and publish a book in spite of myself, they could work for you too. Give it a try!
