I'm so glad I read this book. I am horrible about procrastinating and it's not that this book gave a lot of techniques on "how not to's"; but, the techniques on organizing and planning made feel motivated. I was actually looking forward to school starting so I could start using these tips. It was really funny how the real life situation hit so close to home! Definitely glad I read this before my next semester.
