Get Er Done by Michael Martel

Get 'er Done and that is exactly what I had to do.  I received this book kind-of late with less than a week to read it.  It is a short and easy to read book, but very interesting.  I'm so glad I took the time to Get 'er Read.  The author takes his experience as a Green Beret and puts it into civilian terms for the reader to use in family and business settings.  I so totally enjoyed how he used some of his life experiences as a Green Beret and put them into everyday life experiences.  Martel lays out systematic and applicable steps to help the reader gain  personal and business success.  At the end of each chapter are missions, from what he taught in the chapter, to apply in your civilian life to achieve your life's dream.  It is totally right on target a guide to productivity.

Be sure to return tomorrow for a guest article by this author.  

There is a lot to do. There is a lot to do at home or at work. Sometimes it just feels overwhelming. Don’t you wish you could be more productive?

The Special Forces Green Berets are known as masters at getting things done. By normal standards, some of their missions would be deemed impossible. Often times they are expected to operate far behind enemy lines with limited resources. Their training gives them principles and techniques in being extremely effective and doing more with less. By using some of their principles you will be able to:

● Plan and use your time more effectively
● Increase your confidence

Michael Martel uses his real experiences as a Green Beret to illustrate how you can use these techniques in your life to “get er done.” It is a great, interesting read that will make you much more effective in your daily activities.
