Overall this book delivers a powerful resource of well-developed material, easily actionable for everyday situations, is well organized and tackles the "procrastination virus" by giving readers a barrage of useful "ammunition" in the anti-procrastination steps. A definite read for people [like me] who struggle to get things down because of lack of confidence, weak self-managment skills, or who have the tendency to be pulled off course with every little distraction. Highly recommended as a course in eliminating procrastination and organizing the life you want to live!
Cons: Not as useful for those of us who've been battling procrastination for a while and are still looking for the "right" strategy. Most of these methods still seem to rely on developing detailed lists of tasks and assigning them to specific dates for follow-up. If that works for you, then this book is worth reading. If you've been there and done that, then you might find "Master Your Workday Now" by Michael Linenberger more interesting.
Some of the advice in the book we've all heard before, but some of it is valuable. Why do we procrastinate? Sometimes it's because the task seems too overwhelming. This guide tells you some ways to overcome that. For example, break a large chore into smaller tasks. Many of us have tried this, at least mentally. But have you ever written these small steps down? Most of us haven't.
Here's an example. I've been needing to clean out my garage all year. I never started because I just don't want to devote a full day on a weekend. I'll get to it sometime, I tell myself. Maybe when it's warmer. After reading this, here's what I tried. Write down all the little tasks, and assign times to them. Like...
Gather some trash bags (2 minutes)
Pull out all 10-12 storage totes, open them (3 mins)
Anything in them I don't need? Put in trash bag (5 mins)
Condense all totes, making about five empty ones (10 mins)
Gather random extension cords (garden hoses, etc) (5 mins)
Put like items together, put in empty totes (10 mins)
Label the totes with masking tape and a marker (5 mins)
Screw hooks into the walls to hang up bicycles (20 mins)
Sweep (5 mins)
Haul trash bags to curb (3 mins)
So I spent five minutes actually writing down these simple tasks. Then I added up the estimated times. Wow, I should be able to get my garage cleaned out in less than an hour!
The trick is to just get started. Tell yourself that you can stop anytime. If you only get the first two items on your list done, oh well, you've only spent five minutes and that's more than you've done all year. But chances are, after you start, your momentum will kick in and you'll just keep rolling.
There's something mentally satisfying about lining through items on a to-do list. And before you know it, you've done the whole list. You've spent an hour or so, and your garage looks 100% better than it did just 60 short minutes ago.
And if you're creative, you can apply this method to almost any chore. This is just one of the methods in the book. Pretty soon I'm going to read the rest of it. And maybe in a few months I'll get my basement cleaned up as well.
Overall, this is a pretty simple book but I'm glad I bought it.
