Summary, etc.:
""Organized" and "artist" don't usually go together. Creative types are more often seen as sensitive, melodramatic, eccentric, misunderstood, and the like. To labels like this, Sam Bennett says, "Congratulations! You're an artist." And through The Organized Artist Company, she has coached hundreds of artists to overcome procrastination, lack of focus, and time-sucking habits so that they can get their art done and out into the world. Bennett explains why "procrastination is genius in disguise" and then prescribes dozens of wonderfully revelatory exercises. From "My Heroes" lists to "Could Do" lists (because To-Do lists make Bennett belligerent) to recognizing who you should not talk to about your project and when research has created Analysis Paralysis, each of these actions requires only a 15-minute commitment. But while quickly accomplished, each shifts the reader's thinking and prompts the kind of insights that have the power to turn underperforming geniuses into accomplished artists"-- Provided by publisher.
""Helps creative people make progress toward their goals with 15-minute exercises. Addresses procrastination, lack of focus, and time-wasting habits, as well as writer's block, fear of failure, and self-sabotage"--Provided by publisher"-- Provided by publisher.
