Welcome to the Get It Done Community
We’re glad that you’re here!
Thank you for taking a moment to review our community values and guidelines.
If you would prefer to listen to these guidelines instead of reading, listen here:
We hope you will review these guidelines, nod your head, and think, “Yes. This is beautiful. This totally aligns with who I am—and the world I want to live in.”
We welcome people of all genders, all sexual orientations, and all faiths into our programs
Whether you are queer or straight, trans or cis, Christian or Muslim, Jewish with a side of Buddhist, or any other kind of human being, here, you will be treated with respect.
Diversity, equity, and anti-racist leadership
Being anti-racist means taking action to interrupt racist systems and build a world that is safe, fair, and equitable for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color, and other communities that have been oppressed throughout history.
You will see these values reflected in all levels of our company—from who we hire, to the books we recommend to our customers, to the causes we support through our monthly fundraisers.
Success is whatever you want it to be
Success means different things to different people. In this community, we encourage you to define what success means to you—and stay true to your personal set of criteria.
For you, does “success” mean becoming a New York Times bestselling author? Finding the courage to click “send” on your first newsletter? Or perhaps “success” means quietly celebrating a personal victory surrounded by people you love? We encourage you to define success on your own terms.
Technology should make your life better, not worse.
Using tech mindfully and intentionally is a cornerstone of everything we do.
In our courses, you will not be pummeled with excessive emails. You won’t be asked to spend unnecessary time in Zoom meetings. We don’t use social media as a discussion forum. We want you to accomplish your goals while spending less time online, not more.
When you reduce screen time and unplug more, you feel better, you gain energy, you can concentrate more deeply, and do higher-quality work in half the time.
By being a member of our community, and by participating in our courses, subscriptions, and services including the Community Forum, you agree to the following:
This is no place for hate
We have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech and abuse. Racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, anti-immigrant, and all other forms of discriminatory rhetoric will not be tolerated. Hate speech is violence. Hateful language is taken with the same severity as physical violence.
Be kind to others
Be kind and respectful to your fellow course participants, to your teachers, and all Get It Done employees. Cheer for people’s victories. Celebrate people’s progress. Say “please” and “thank you.” Be a role model. Have good manners.
Be kind to yourself
You’re on a journey to achieve your goals. You’re here to Get It Done! This is exciting! And, at times, it can be scary and uncomfortable. Don’t forget to be kind to yourself.
Double up on your self-care. Take breaks from your desk, move your body in whatever way feels good to you, make time to rest and de-stress, and speak to yourself in a kind tone of voice—like you are speaking to a dear friend. Be extra kind to yourself on this journey.
Take what you need and leave what you don’t
There is no pressure to “do everything” in a course. Enjoy the parts that appeal to you and ignore that stuff that doesn’t.
Maybe you love the videos, but you prefer not to visit the Community Forum. Totally cool.
Or maybe you love emailing your teachers to brainstorm and get help, but you don’t particularly enjoy attending the Zoom meetings. Cool.
Do what feels good for you. There is no pressure to “do it all.” You will get excellent results by focusing on the parts that excite you the most.
Reach out for help whenever you need it—and please use the appropriate channel
If you have a question for your fellow course participants, please post your question in the Community Forum.
If you have a question for your teachers, please email us: email@example.com. Please do not post questions for teachers in the Forum. Please email us. That way, it’s much easier for us to stay organized and make sure we reply promptly.
Teachers and other Get It Done employees check inboxes Monday to Friday, and you can expect a reply within 1-3 business days.
Got feedback? Please email us privately
You have a suggestion on how to make the course better? You want to mention something we could do differently in the future? You’re disappointed about something and have some constructive criticism? Please email us privately: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We are continually looking for ways to improve, and we really appreciate your suggestions.
Please do not post feedback publicly in the Community Forum. We request that you email us privately. That way, it’s much easier for us to stay organized, make sure your feedback goes to the right person and gets addressed as quickly as possible. Thank you.
Please do not contact fellow course participants, unless they’ve told you it’s okay to do so
If you meet someone in the Community Forum who seems amazing, and you’d like to email them, first, ask them if it’s okay to do so.
For example, you could post a note in the Forum and say to that person, “I’d love to have you as a guest on my podcast! May I email you more info?”
Or say, “It looks like you want to hire a graphic designer. I’m a designer! May I email you some info about my work?”
Ask permission first. Please be respectful of people’s space and privacy. Some people would love to hear from you. Some, not so much. Ask before you email.
Please do not share copyrighted material publicly
When you enroll in a course or subscription, we work hard to put together a beautiful experience for you—including workbooks, checklists, templates, videos, and other copyrighted materials. These materials are for you, not for the public.
You are welcome to share course materials with a small group of people, but please do not share them publicly.
For example: sharing course materials with your assistant, your workplace team, your spouse or partner, or your child: totally okay! Go for it.
Sharing course materials with twenty friends, plus several clients, plus everyone who reads your blog? Not okay. Please don’t do that.
Use common sense and email us (email@example.com) if you’re not sure about a particular situation and you need clarification. Thank you so much.
Right to terminate
We reserve the right to terminate services at any time should you break any of our community guidelines. When we say we have a zero tolerance policy, we mean that.
To sum it all up:
Thank you for reviewing these values and guidelines.
To sum it all up: be cool, be kind, be polite, use good manners, and be respectful. The end.
