Beat procrastination by speed dating your tasks: You’ll face anything if it’s just for three minutes; schedule small, finite periods of time for those tasks that seem too overwhelming to get started on.
Give your technology a performance review: Our smart phones, PDAs, and computers often make less work in one area while making much more work in others. Review your technology to make sure it’s delivering on its promise.
Cut out the small talk: Small talk builds superficial relationships, which is a grand waste of time. Ask better questions to make instant connections that’ll benefit you for years to come.
Written in the uniquely humorous style Stever is known for, Get-It-Done Guy’s 9 Steps to Work Less and Do More will help you break the bad habits slowing you down and holding you back. Work less and do more - your free time is waiting!

Painful to listen to unless you are 20 something
What would have made Get-It-Done-Guy's 9 Steps to Work Less and Do More better?
Less of the quirky personality of the author. He had good points however the delivery method depended on being on his weird wavelength. Injections about things such as zombies to make his point were funny at first, tired in the end.
Would you ever listen to anything by Stever Robbins again?
If his style matures, the book is written to amuse the 20 something crowd.
Would you be willing to try another one of Stever Robbins’s performances?
Not likely that I would spend the time or money.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Get-It-Done-Guy's 9 Steps to Work Less and Do More?
I listened to the book several months ago and just remember feeling, good points but awful delivery. Too many of his personal experiences etc I could not relate with.
Any additional comments?
I commend the guy for trying.

Thanks to your work, now I can't sleep, Stever!
This is a superb audiobook. I listen to many, and do not use effusive praise lightly. I usually listen to audiobooks and podcasts before bed, to help me relax before sleep. Get-it-done-guy is one of my favorites, and the 10 minutes or so usually offered is a great break from my day. Stever tickles my funny bone like he put "make this girl laugh" on his life map. But now that I have so many hours of his humor, all in one place, and it is so good - both well written and educational in a "stop what you're doing and reorganize your life right now" kind of way - how is it that I am supposed to get any sleep? I keep giggling out loud and waking up my husband, who then listens himself and then chuckles so loudly that I still can't sleep, even though husband has stolen the earphones. What the heck!?! Here is the part of the review where I would say that Stever is a cross between "insert business guru here" and "insert comedian's name here", but he is such an original that comparisons are useless. Go get an episode of the podcast. Any will do. If you do not laugh, go buy a "How to get a sense of humor" audiobook instead. If you laugh, or change your life for the better, or - most likely - change your life for the better while figuring out how to invest in the Depends brand so you can listen to more, then you should buy this audiobook. Possible also while buying the hard copy so you can use a highlighter for the good parts. S'what I did, and look how happy I am. Well, except for the not being able to sleep part...

Brilliant and funny organising tool!
I have been listening to Stever Robbins, Get It Done Guy's podcasts for the last couple of years and when he announced his book was coming out - I was keen to buy.
Not only does Stever offer practical tips to 'work less and do more' but Stever makes you think about why you currently work the way you do and evaluate where you might be wasting time. He also acknowledges that you don't have to change systems regularly to be effectice.
The style is quirky and humorous, I listened on my walk to and from work and often found myself laughing out loud at the examples.
If you like David Allen and want to be more organised - whether at work or at home then this is the book for you.
