I have always had trouble with procrastination. I finally realized that I have many anxieties which are linked to my trouble with focus and attention. However, I always incredibly hard on myself for it. I had never realized there are behavioral methods that actually work to help us stay in our focus zone. I have been one to quickly jump into the use of medications to help, but after reading this book I was able to cut way back on stimulants and implement better methods with better results. The breathing and self talk are very helpful when I catch myself getting negative or anxious, especially the mantra "Progress not perfection."
It also helps to read stories of people of various backgrounds who also struggle with focus and attention. I found I connected with a number of cases mentioned in the book.
