Turn your good intentions into action.

"This book contains a ton of practical and easy-to-implement techniques and strategies for getting yourself to do whatever needs to be done." --Jack Canfield, coauthor of The Success Principles and the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Whether you run your own business or work for someone else, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate. Along with the portion of your work that you truly feel like doing comes a generous helping of things you’d rather not do.

As consultants, Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper have seen countless clients struggle—and often fail—to do the many success-producing things they know they should do but don’t feel like doing.

The Power to Get Things Done will teach you how to consistently turn your good intentions into action so that you can be as successful as possible in the work you do.

Don't feel like filing those pesky tax forms or making the follow-up calls you've been putting off? The Power to Get Things Done will show you how to get yourself--and keep yourself--in gear.

Levinson and Cooper offer you a host of practical solutions, including:

   •  the smart way to think about and treat your own good intentions
   •  three key principles of following through that will change everything
   •  simple but powerful principles and strategies that will turn you into a follow-through champion.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 30, 2015 – Clinical psychologist and entrepreneur Levinson and business consultant Cooper are here to help any people who feel like they could be more productive which is to say, most of them. The coauthors ask a simple question: Why do workers find it so hard to be productive and follow through on what they want to achieve? The answer, they say, is that people rely too heavily on motivation, which is certainly a factor in productivity but isn't enough to guarantee it. Levinson and Cooper go on to show that the simple desire for success is not enough to make one actually sit down and do the "specific success-producing things." The trick is developing motivation that's greater than one's natural resistance to completing the task at hand. Levinson and Cooper mainly discuss finding ways to overcome resistance: making it hard to do the wrong thing, and easy to do the right thing. They cover challenges that are particular to business owners, tips for working smarter rather than harder, and strategies for getting things done once and for all. Some advice is high-level and some more concrete; all of it is backed up by worksheet questions, opportunities for reflection, and strong cheerleading.
