When the first page of a book describes a time as a chef on abillionaires yacht during the Monaco Grand Prix, you begin to wonder if it really is a fiction book! At least that’s what I though when I read Niall Harbison's new literary venture - Get Sh*t Done!: From Spare Room to Boardroom in 1,000 Days. The mastermind behind the well known LovinDublin and many other online ventures, has a life that many of us can only ever dream off. As I've learned from his book , Get Shit Done which he very kindly sent me for reviewing purposes, along with a very lovely note, Niall wasn’t conventionally smart thorough school or books but he did have determination – that is shown throughout his book and the stories he shares. He had smarts from learning through doing which I have always said is the best way .
He gives some of the best advice I have ever read – its frank and no bull shit. Plan and simply this book is about Getting Sh*t Done!! And now. He gives some incredible examples of past situations and how he has taken the more risky path and it has paid off. I know this book is considered ‘’self help’’ orat least that’s where I saw it in Easons recently, but trust me its definitely not one of those preaching guides its really about life and how someone has achieved many great things – Here's what I've done now you can do the same. What I've learned from reading this is that Niall, now extremely successful and onces a very success chef (YouTube'd him & realised I recognise him from yonkes ago) is not only extremely lucky but full of balls. If he hadn’t taken initial chances that could have crashed and burned (some did) he wouldn’t be where he is today, and there definitely wouldn't have been a book to tell the tale. There is an element to luck in him, but its more right place right time and the balls to go for it.
If you are at all at a plateau – like I am currently – this book will seriously help you. I had no idea what I wanted and was in limbo now after reading how Niall drove himself to be the business man he is even after people told him it was impossible, I have the nerve to go and do the same.
Even if you aren’t in limbo this is a seriously good read, at the very least you learn about some of Nialls amazing experiences, and as he says, its all a story to tell in the nursing home, I don't want to give to much away but trust me it really is an amazing read and one you won't be able to put down.No go and Get Sh*t Done, with Get Sh*t Done!!!!
