PURPOSE REVIEW Start Right Where You Are How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference By Sam Bennett F eeling overwhelmed? Is Procrastination your middle name? Are you a frustrated overachiever or recovering perfectionist? If you answered “yes!” to any of these questions and you’re paddling like mad to reach your goals but unable to leave the shore, this book might be your lifesaver. Sam Bennett was in the same leaky boat, and discovered techniques to patch it up and sail into the sunset (so to speak). She offers her hard-earned advice here so you, too, can take control of your life’s rudder. With Sam as your funny, kick-in-the-pants captain, you’ll learn how to get a handle on your time; find out what’s really making you feel in over your head; set good, better, and best goals; clear the mental and emotional clutter that holds you back; raise your self esteem; get a tribe; and apply some fifty more tips to achieve success. Did I say fifty? Yep. Plenty to choose from to target your specific issue, so there’s no excuse for staying beached. Sam Bennett is the creator of The Organized Artist Company.
