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!
The book is very easy to read. I liked very much
I’d highly recommend this to anyone who is working on personal development, and is willing to admit that they have a problem with procrastination.
When I saw the title, 23 Anti-Procrastination Habits: How to Stop Being Lazy and Get Results in Your Life, I got excited. I thought this book might provide me some solutions on how to drag myself out of the muck and mire and actually finish some important projects in 2014.
I was not disappointed by the content of this read. S.J. Scott provides a concise list of ways to break out of the procrastination habit and to increase your performance in everyday tasks. For example, one of his suggestions is to capture every idea that comes into your head, whether it is with an old-fashioned notebook and pen or on your latest and greatest digital device. The idea is that you become paralyzed when ideas are swimming around in their brain because you don’t know what idea to act on first. This way, you write the idea down, file it away for another time, and return to the task at hand.
The author also suggests that another reason for procrastination is because we do not know how to complete a particular part of a project. Perhaps, we don’t have the knowledge or the skill set to stay on track. Therefore, he encourages readers to develop a project-based skill in order to progress on schedule with your work. It will take some time to learn the skill, but it can easily translate to other opportunities at work or in your personal life. This idea is one of many that I will be including in my to-do list for 2014.
For those, like me, who struggle with getting the job done, this book is a definite must-read. If you can take one or two ideas from this author and implement them into your own life, then the book is worth your time and money.
Top reviews from other countries
The big if, as mentioned by some other reviewers, is that many of the habits require lots of time and proactivity to implement, qualities that procrastinators do not always have / apply in spades. To top it off, applying all the 23 habits will require so much time that it is questionable to what extent you will save time after all and how much more effective you will become, even if you will stop procrastinating. In that sense the book should be read in conjunction with A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits Of Disorder if you are really looking for a balanced treatment of the subject.
Implementing the habits selectively may be useful, though - therefore the four stars. It is also very easy to read, well organized and may potentially move the odd reader from the group of procrastinators to become more proactive.
I felt that the 'How to stop procrastinating' had more detail so I've kept that one.
A good book in its own right but no point in buying along with 'How to stop procrastinating' as too similar
Steve writes great books - I like his style and they are well-researched and presented.
Easy to read, useful but lacks clear examples on each technique, still very worthwhile if you're struggling like I did (and do less now).
