About the Author
"Build a Better Life - One Habit at a Time" Getting more from life doesn't mean following the latest diet craze or motivation program. True success happens when you take action on a daily basis.

I can't say that I suffer from *terrible* procrastination, but the truth is, if I have a project I'm not 100% keen about I'll find ways to them it off. Fortunately, there are several of the 23 anti-procrastination habits that I can easily incorporate into my life. Of all, though, my favorite is the Single-Handle Process. That means when something crosses my desk, just do it now instead of putting it aside until a more convenient time. This one good habit keeps me from multitasking, a bad habit that gets me into overwhelm and excessive tiredness.
Although Prioritizing is another of the good habits, I've never found it works well for me because I tend to give everything a #1 or A rating. Then I'm stuck trying to figure out which of the #1s is the REAL #1. However, a habit I've used in the past and can really relate to is APH #19: Develop Project-Based Skills. For me this means becoming a good project manager, recognizing what I can or can't do, or what needs to be delegated and what needs my own attention. The Blueprint step that's a part of APH #19 is excellent - it's this level of detail attention that I know will help me immensely. That's because I know a lot of my procrastination is directly related to being in overwhelm with the size of a project.
While you may not use every single one of the 23 anti-procrastination habits, I can guarantee you'll find at least a valuable handful that will get your project out of the same step you've been stuck on for weeks. Lastly, I want to commend the author for his reference to the TED talks - I've used them to inspire myself - and I'm thrilled to see them included in this book. TED talks can get you motivated and moving forward like little else.
Only get the Kindle set (and not individual books) if you don't mind adding highlights, and bookmarks yourself (to find each book separately).
