[Book Review] Getting Sh*t Done: Stop Procratinating, Let Perfectionism Go, & Harness Your Creative Superpowers (Complete Flake Guides Book 1)
Getting Sh*t Done: Stop Procratinating, Let Perfectionism Go. & Harness Your Creative Superpowers (Complete Flake Guides Book 1)

To say that this book did not reach my expectations would be an understatement. I read the summary and though it sounded like a playful way to approach the topic. Instead what I read was quite derogatory and shaming. The author describes the traits of persons with ADD at great lengths before actually admitting (44% of the way through the book), that she and her son have both been diagnosed with it, and then clinically defining it. She states that "You may be a flake if…" and goes on to list issues that people with ADD struggle with. I think she was trying to be humorous, but it just didn't work.
I would not recommend this book to any of my clients, especially those with ADD/ADHD.
"To me, a flake is disorganized, impulsive, often overstressed by work an/or family commitments, exhausted, and trying desperately to hide her shameful secret. Like the Red Queen in Through the Looking Glass, she is running as fast as she can just to keep from falling behind. Of course, she is always falling behind." (loc 88/601)
Okie dokie, let's keep this short and sweet.
Does this seem over-simplified? It may, but the truth is so many clients struggle with stuff they just do not know what to do with. Let me be the one to tell you that if you decide the stapler is going to live one place, and then a week later change that location because you decided on a better location…THAT IS OK! What is not ok is being burdened by stuff and the paralyzing feeling that what ever decision that you make for the stuff has to be perfect. You are allowed to make mistakes and change your mind...I do it everyday and I still love myself. Love yourself too and take control!
Dedicating a home for items is one thing…getting them there is another story. Set time aside to tidy up and you will be much happier and save time later!
A while back I invested in an app called Camcard. I fell in love. It is fast, easy, and convenient. My favorite feature was that when I took a picture of a business cards, it would give me the option of sending them a LinkedIn invite…genius! This feature was recently removed, and once I furiously contacted the developer, I was told there were many bugs that made it inefficient. Enough of my sob story, and I still like the app.
Like many of my fellow entrepreneurs and clients, I have information overload. How can I best organize this information so I can find it when I need it? How can I merge all of my Yahoo contacts, Apple contacts, Gmail contacts, clients and business cards? Camcard.
The app allowed me to import all of my contacts which is wonderful! The big relief came with the main reason I looked into the app…Business Cards. What in the world do you do with them? The number of ways to create categories could drive a person crazy…quite literally.
How does it work with the cards?
You take a picture and the app will automatically transfer the information on the card into a contact system. Not all info will transfer correctly, especially if people deviate from the suggested text fields (putting the business name where the first and last name should go), or it they use a font that is difficult to read. You can group your contacts and take notes within the card.
Why is a digital format so valuable for business cards?
Well, did you for them by industry, networking group, business name, first name, last name… You get the picture. And what if you can not remember the name of a store but know what street it is on? Simply type the street name into the search field and the card will be found. Very powerful! Also, how great is it to be able to give friends, family, clients and contacts information immediately instead of going back to your desk, looking it up and them calling them or emailing the information to them.
Finally, since you have a digital copy of the card, you can pass it on to someone else, or recycle it. There is little to no reason that you would need to hold on to a hard copy of the card…I. AM. IN. LOVE!
