Publisher's Summary

If only you had more money, a different job, a bigger house, a passionate romance...your day-to-day would be a whole lot better, right? 

Blah de blah, blah, blah.

Let Gary John Bishop dispel the bullsh*t you tell yourself and instead motivate you to design the life you want.   

This practical guide expands the lessons in the international best seller Unf*ck Yourself. It is a personal workshop for your brain, where you can determine what matters to you, empowering you to move forward without the emotional baggage. Broken down into three key pillars - self, people and purpose - you will answer Bishop's curated list of life-altering questions. These questions reveal what you have suppressed or tried to minimise, the kinds of thing one might throw into their metaphorical backpack and carry around until the weight becomes too much.

By doing the work, you will understand your feelings and your actions like you never have before. The exercises allow you to stop the negative chatter, improve your relationships and give you the courage to instigate positive change.   

Do the Work is the nudge (or more like the kick in the ass) you need to get out of your rut.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

wake up call

Was nervous about getting this, but decided what the hell! Remembering everytime you shift into a different mode of thinking about problems is a step forward. The title says it all, this is an antidote to the warm and fuzzy self help, we usually associate with the genre. If you've tried the warm and fuzzy and that hasnt worked or got you really got to snap out of your personal BS, try this. This isnt a negativity drive or a "back in my day" trip, far from it its a proactive, look yourself in the mirror, the bare naked you. Underneath the delivery and title, this is a positive book, it snaps you right out of your comfortable 1st world echoe chamber and the little mantras of delusion, we self sooth ourselves with. Its definitely worth a listen. For me, the accent (I assume he has lived in US) was the only thing i had to get over, so i need to "UnF*** myself" about trivial BS.

What Else Could You Expect?

This is from the start this audiobook is a 'bollocking' for how you have let yourself slip. Let him do it. The book has been boiled down to its bare bones and the author's directness is refreshing. Listen to the guy. He's telling you the truth. Brilliantly narrated by a guy with a Scottish accent. If that isn't enough to bash you over the head by realism then nothing else will. Thank you, Gary. So brilliantly put.

A voice I could listen to forever...

Loved listening to a concise account of you are your actions not your thoughts a "Just Get On With It!" kick up the proverbial.

Underwhelming, negative & hard to listen to.

Whilst this has potential, I was distracted by a number of components. Gary Bishops Faux accents were perplexing - deep Scottish, mixed with New York, with a hint of Irish, made it hard to follow.
The negativity was around every corner. For a motivational book, I found it uninspiring and demotivating.
I found the sweating for effect was not required and only magnified the undermining negativity.
There was some potential but it was lost in the constant kicking.
I’ve never scored a book this low before.

Probably the best self-help book I have ever read

Probably the best self-help book I have ever read.

I have read a lot of self-help books- some good, some bad, some that fall somewhere in between.

In all those books and all those years, this is probably the best one yet.

It is refreshing, honest, blunt, and practical.

It veers well away from the usual softly softly approach and mercifully also avoids longwinded sob stories from the writer’s own past or promises that you too can have their life if you do as they have done.

The final chapter is only 5 minutes long but is perhaps the most motivating speech I have ever heard in my life.

A thoroughly excellent book that I have no doubt will make my life better.

Life Changing 💯💥👊✨

There are over three hundred books in my personal library.
Mostly covered in dust waiting for me to be ready to read them✨✨ At long last a format that enables me to work and listen and a book as wonderfully powerful and direct as Gary's comes along and BOOM✨👊💥💥💯 It's the best book I've had read to me in a very long time and the most Actionable too💯💥👊✨👍 I have Enormous Gratitude for Do The Work and it's prequel Unfuck Yourself 👍✨👊💥💯 What excites me most is the deep knowing that at last some of my dearest and most passionate dreams may actually become realities 💯💥💥✨✨👊💥💯 Being able to do listen regularly until the teachings and challenges become automatic or at least close to second nature or dare I say even first nature is very very exciting and inspiring. ✨👍👊👊💯💯💥💥 These two books should be on the curriculum in every high school senior years, the world would then be hit by a wave of youngsters forewarned and forearmed to actually live meaningful and passionate lives of great contribution and equally great satisfaction💥💯👍👍👍👊💯💥 Thankyou from every fibre of my being Andre M💥💯👊👍✨

great information and presentation but...

Fantastic, however due to a heavy reliance on self paced activities it is not the best audiobook for people unable to participate (driving, flying, walking.....)
I still gained a great deal from the book and will review chapters again at home rather than in the car
