When distractions are everywhere, and nothing seems to get accomplished?
You turn to DONE
The hands-on guidebook that teaches the tools and strategies for overcoming procrastination, building stronger habits, harnessing daily energy, and being more focused, all so you can be more efficient and effective with your time and get things DONE.
Through stories, examples, and activities, you’ll learn the importance of being in action, how to prevent obstacles from stopping you, how working with (and around) your brain, can make all the difference in what can be accomplished every day, and why one-size does not fit all when it comes to productivity.

What you will learn:
- The different types of procrastination and strategies for dealing with each of them
- How to remove one of the prime causes of procrastination that shows up in everyone’s life (and how much more productive you’ll be once it’s gone)

- How to expand your perception of time and make it work harder for you
- Easy ways to build better habits (and eliminate the ones that don’t work)

“99.9% of the greatest ideas in the world never come to fruition because people don’t act on their ideas. The highway of life is littered with great ideas that never were. Don’t let that happen to you. Read this book - Ellen shows you how to get stuff done, avoid distractions, and up your output to stratospheric levels. DONE is a must-read.”
PETER SHANKMAN, Author, Faster Than Normal: Turbocharge your focus, productivity and success with the secrets of the ADHD Brain
“What I like best about Ellen and her new book is that she walks the talk, and it comes through in her writing. She doesn’t talk down to us who may or may not (mostly may) struggle with procrastination and distraction, she is right there with us—but with great ideas about how we can all be better at getting things done. People often joke that they don’t have time to read about saving time, that said, make the time to read this book because in the end, it will save you a ton of time down the road.”
LEE SILBER, Author, Time Management For The Creative Person
“Ellen has written a masterful guidebook packed with encouraging step by step action plans to tame your inner critic, let go of perfectionism and build habits that actually last. By the time you finish you will understand how to finally get out of your own way so you can enjoy your new life as someone who consistently gets things DONE!”
ERIN MATLOCK, Author, Worth It
"I’m a productivity aficionado. I read all the books and if I’m lucky, maybe one or two strategies stick for a little bit and then I go back to being hopelessly unproductive. This book is the unicorn of productivity help! Not only does Ellen’s advice stick, but she offers so many ideas and strategies for the various things that can come up. That’s what I needed. This is not the “one way for everybody” approach. It is loaded with options and scenarios, and it’s done in a fun, funny, forgiving, and friendly way. 5++++ stars"
