DISCLAIMER : Thank you, TCK publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book. I am leaving this review voluntarily.
2020 is in many ways was a new beginning for me. I have gotten into the habit of reading more consistently for the past two years. Keeping up with the habit has become challenging with the pandemic, having everyone around all the time, and also the kid’s schooling. With everything going on, like everyone else I had big plans for this year. Starting to learn new things, better myself as a person, try to incorporate learning new skills were the few on top of my list. Like every good-intentioned person, I started out with a bang and crashed and burned at the resistance that kept popping up in my life. Wanting to be more productive in other areas of my life is nothing new for me, as I keep making lists at the beginning of the year and abandoning them somewhere down the line. This is when I saw the title on the TCK publisher’s website. I had pushed reading this book, because of prior engagements and got delayed even further. If there is one person in this whole world who needs this book, that’s me. Because PROCRASTINATION has become my last name as of late.
I am not an avid non-fiction reader. With me branching out into other genres after I started my reviewing journey, I have had a vested interest in self-help books for some time now. I want to better myself and it’s the number one goal in my life. So every day is a day full of potential and a day for new beginnings for me. This is where Get It Done : The 21-Day Mind Hack System to Double Your Productivity and Finish What You Start, comes into play.
Michael Mackintosh has consolidated some of the key concepts of productivity into a working template that can be tailored to facilitate the new routines that will help us get things done in 21 days. The book is divided into 3 parts with the first part taking us through 11 mind hacks to help us realign our perspectives and get a clearer picture of what we want. The strategies that are given to us in part 2 is the 21-day challenge with techniques and steps to help us get closer to our goals. Part 3 sums up everything by bringing together the components that are part of the recipe for ultimate success. Mackintosh has obviously taken the time to deconstruct the key ideas and develop a winning formula that is not only easy to understand and follow, it also is very practical. Each step is painstakingly detailed and the devil is in the details. I would recommend taking 21 days to get the prep work for the goal-setting using the templates in the book. The attention to detail and reiterating of certain concepts helps us with holding on to the important aspects of the process.
The key components that make up the foolproof formula can be tailored to help with our individual needs. Whether you work in an office or from home, doing this challenge is guaranteed to take you one step closer to accomplishing your goals. It also can be used by everyone who is looking to fulfill goals but has failed to do so because of resistance or procrastination. Beating procrastination at its game is one of the many things we get to learn through this book. Changing our perspective on time management, the 80/20 principle all are explained in detail breaking them down into bite-size chunks that is easy to follow through.
Mackintosh is a successful life coach and you get to see the same energy throughout the book, The book feels like a motivational read with the author’s voice leading and cheering us through the challenges. I loved how easy to read this book was, and how simple and straightforward the concepts were. One would almost think that some of the main concepts were so obvious that how did we miss them in the first place. You are probably going to see a lot of the recurring concepts and theories of productivity in this book. Having said that, Mackintosh has combined the strategies in a way it’s not only easy to remember the concepts, it’s also something that’s can be used on a daily basis to achieve periodic goals that will have a compounding effect. He explains to us what has not worked and why and he also gives us a working solution to the problem. It helps immensely when the strategies are uncomplicated to remember, but the acronyms make it simple and straightforward. The biggest attraction for me was the details, the clarity of the concepts, and the breakdown of strategies into comprehensive templates.
If you are someone who is looking to create habits and routines that will help us get on track to creating a better life, this book should be on top of your list. I loved this book. It’s filled with so much information, strategies, and working templates that I enjoyed every second of it. I took so many notes and if you guys want a breakdown of the chapters or a chapter summary, please let me know. I am thrilled to take this make and use it for helping me achieve my goals. It was a beneficial book and inspired me to take charge and not give up. I gave the book 5 stars and I highly recommend checking it out.
