More About the Author

Michael started learning to read and write at the grand old age of 3, and as a child he wrote some surprisingly good stories; unfortunately for him life intruded and his interest waned, that was until he discovered the internet. He developed a number of websites and given the response that he received got from some of his articles, he finally remembered that he could write. Discovering Kindle took him to the next stage where he has a number of books out, and a massive to do list still to write. His books have been mainly based around personal development, although he managed, and only just to get an adaptation of the Christmas Carol out, just before Christmas. He has started a novel, but with the amount of work that he has going it's progressing at an irritatingly slow rate. His book writing got a wee bit disrupted when he discovered magcasting and he is now the publisher of Your Personal Development. His current plans are to take his magazine to Kindle, and once Amazon's Newsstand is out of beta, he'll be there.

A detailed guide on how to overcome procrastination and achieve more every day. The author explains why we procrastinate and what to do about it.

This is not some superficial information on setting up a to do list. The author goes into detail about the common causes of procrastination such as self esteem issues, negative thinking and stress and how they affect our ability to get things done. Recommended.

Upon reading this rather unassuming lil' book, it became clear to me, the writer was 'feeling' exactly what it was I was feeling, and the very 'reasoning' that actually in the end prompted me to pickup this book.

It was obvious he was someone who has struggled but also has overcome this debilitating 'disorder'... I say disorder, because that's exactly what it brings, disorder lol! I must say it is for this very reason, it was quite an enjoyable and valuable read for me. You can tell just from the chapter headings, that this is someone who has shared the 'experience' and Overcome; with such section headings as; "The Joys of Procrastination", "Your Assertiveness", and "bringing Everything Together", which for most of us, (amongst the tweets & Facebook updates), is a logistically nightmarish reality!

It was the way in which the chapters were laid-out that really helped me counter each of my specific self-limiting traits, one at a time. Under each chapter heading is a list of bullets of restricting patters we can address by using the often very 'simple', yet very over-looked or 'under-practiced' elements we can all adopt, for healthier more productive day!

All-in-All; I learnt lot's of things from the book, that I simply didn't think about myself before, or if I did; I procrastinated doing it, thinking it really wasn't worth the effort, but after reading the author's experiences, I 'Know' I can do the same!

Pros: The Step-By-Step Analysis of 'Restricting' Habits, and How To 'Tackle Em', One-At-A-Time...
Cons: None really that I can think of, there were afew minor grammatical errors, but nothing major!

Many Thanks to the Author!
~ I highly recommended This to anyone who needs yet another tool in their anti-procrastinatory arsenal!

I've reviewed some of Michael's books in the past, but this is my favorite to date. Probably because I tend to procrastinate doing the stuff I really dislike. I'm in the process of packing and moving right now and I have a lot of stuff I could procrastinate about! However, I took one of Michael's suggestions and focused on what I could get done - and ended up just making a list of things I could get packed, from the easiest to the most difficult. Doing that alone has helped me over the "doing nothing" hump. Good info here - if you put the yucky stuff off, grab this book.

You Can Beat Procrastination offers tips about being more positive, assertive, how to plan and organize, take things in workable chunks and not get bogged down in the fear of failure or frustration or anger or perfection, asking for help when needed and more. The author offers a plan to analyze what's stopping you so you can eliminate what's holding you back and get you on your way to just do it - whatever needs doing.
