It is 2020 and the SH!T has hit the fan. How can you possibly still get SH!T done when bombarded by wildfires and murder hornets, not to mention a raging pandemic? Get SH!T Done takes the reader through a week already on the verge of overwhelm when an out of the blue request comes via text. Find out how she that week gets transformed into a success by using her SH!T Sheet with four simple steps to get rid of overwhelm and actually get SH!T done (including making a llama cake ). Then, read how four different people put the Get SH!T Done method into action and the lessons they learned along the way.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Lend a Hand Uganda, a nonprofit that feeds and educates Ugandan orphans and vulnerable children to help them get out of poverty.
Professionally, I lead a diverse team of benefits professionals to care for employees at large corporate companies, implementing our benefits philosophy to harmonize the benefits experience across business lines, to communicate value for employees, and to provide increased oversight and analytics that facilitate business decisions.
Perhaps my greatest strength is my management style: I don’t simply delegate—I empower others to do more (they get SH!T done, too!). As a creative thinker and skilled artist with years of quantitative experience as an actuarial consultant, I excel at making complex ideas clear and concrete. When teaching my team how to communicate effectively, I emphasize clarity, empathy, and friendliness. Above all, I train them to always keep the intention of having the best interests of our employees and the company top of mind.
I've read many business books on managing the overwhelm. This book is concise and gives an easy to use method to address and conquer.
What I love about this book is it is NOT just about getting it done, but feeling good in the process. This step-by-step book not only is clearly written while giving fine techniques but is also loaded with different examples of how to apply the techniques. A fun read and super helpful!
As a recovering perfectionist who likes to juggle and do things by myself, I got a few new “Ahas!” from Amy’s wonderful book. For me, the mindfulness around how we want to feel and how we can connect with others as we Get Sh!t Done were two huge takeaways. Knowing that I can feel grounded, happy and ask for help while accomplishing goals is extremely liberating.
