Get Shit Done! (or in more subtle terms – be more productive!)

It’s a bold statement and one that catches your attention – who in their right mind doesn’t want to be more productive? Here we have some very clever marketing from Niall Harbison and his publishers, but it in this case…you can judge a book by it’s cover.

Get Shit Done is a great little eye opener to stop running with the wolves and take a pragmatic approach to business and life. It is all paired with some funny and wild stories from Niall’s background as a chef on super-yachts right through to starting his own successful social media business.

Initially we are introduced to a few chapters of ‘look how amazing I am’, so it wasn’t going well. But as we dive deeper into the book we are introduced to a more endearing side of Niall, his battle with alcoholism, his incredible thirst to succeed and we start to learn a lot from his experiences. Although some of Niall’s stories are a bit out there in terms of his lifestyle, he writes in a very relatable way and I was certainly able to apply my own experiences to what he is trying to get across in this book.

The thing I liked most about this book are the very practical tips and tricks we get on living a more fulfilling life and being way more productive, sure Niall gives some wide overarching theories and philosophies on life, but also gets down to basics with everything from how to work and travel the world to how to make your business look bigger than it is.

This book is well worth a read if you want some inspiration to get off your ass and get shit done, starting your own business, travelling the world or generally being more productive.


Niall’s writing style is awesome, it was difficult to put this book down and you can learn a huge amount in a very short time.
