There are different movies out there that showcase the productivity found in Special Forces, such as the Green Berets. The phrase “Get ‘er done!” is in the forefront as the group charged with a seemingly impossible mission. Yet, that group is responsible to achieving the goal set before them using pretty much any means necessary to reach it. The end result in the movie is sometimes a mixture of MacGyver ingenuity and Superman strength and endurance.
In writing this short, but power packed title, Michael Martel does a fantastic job of summing up his years of Green Beret and civilian experiences to help guide the reader to become more productive in all areas of life.
The chapters are brief, filled with examples, and concluded with a mission for the reader to complete. While I can not say that anything in here is strikingly novel or some secret being exposed for the first time, Mr. Martell’s matter of fact approach in sharing his own lessons learned will guide pretty much anyone down the path for improved productivity.
Now, P was quite anxious to accept this book for review. He already has his sights on becoming a Green Beret and I figure hearing some more about the reality from a former Green Beret could be useful. He enjoyed the short read, most likely savoring snippets about actual missions Mr. Martel shares.
How he now takes these action steps and applies them to his own life remains to be seen. But, I can say that having also read the title and seen how it can apply to not only my own life but the way mine interacts with the boys, I can say that he will be getting more of a “Commander’s Intent” rather than a set of instructions on how to complete all that is expected of him.
Get Er Done retails for $19.99, but can be found for less at Amazon. It should be worth every penny if fully implemented so that you can finally reach goals that have eluded you in the past.
To quote another trainer of warriors, “Do or do not. There is no try.” I’ll be keeping that and all gleaned from Get Er Done to begin achieving more in shorter time. (Which also might mean less ‘multi-tasking’ as that often results in failing to hit the highest mark possible on goals.
