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.
It's a good book to read for people with busy lives ( we are all busy or we should be) who want to see their projects get done. Or for those who need a little push to overcome their fears to start something new.
Sam Bennett created the Organized Artist Company and she wrote a book that is part coaching, part time management, and part kick in the butt. "Get It Done, from Procrastination to Creative Genius in 15 Minutes a Day" is a book with suggestions, how-tos, and clever ideas to help anyone (but especially artists) choose their work, get their work done in a time frame (by working 15 concentrated minutes a day), and complete their work.
Here’s are some chapter titles:
Procrastination is Genius in Disguise
Which of Your 37 Projects to Tackle First
How to Do Your Could-Do List
Where Will You Find the Time?
Organizing Your Space
Why Is It So Awful When Everyone Thinks You are So Wonderful?
Do You Quit When You’re Almost Done?
When you read Bennett’s book, you know she is an artist, has been in your shoes, and can teach you how to dance in them–backwards–to success. Her worksheets are realistic, her steps doable and her process powerful.
The book is a fast read but one you will want to concentrate on to overcome perfectionism and the destructive procrastination that goes hand-in-hand with it. She’s knows art is important to culture, supports the necessity for excellent work, but won’t let you ruin your success with senselessly chasing perfection.
It’s 204 pages that are packed with good advice, success stories, and real help.
