Having read several books in recent years I have been working on it and seeing improvements. This book has 21 clear steps to help incorporate into your life, to build new, good habits.
For me, I think procrastination happens due to overwhelm, stress or lack of sleep, perfectionism, and making too many to-do list items. ;) And all the tech distractions , and Netflix...
I have been making some changes and love it. The other day I cleaned out my closet and dresser of stuff I didn’t want or need, itemized and took it to Goodwill. Now things look better, aren’t jam packed in, and my life is a bit less cluttered.
Awesome! Now I plan to keep practicing the new good habits until they are more ‘normal ‘ for me, and reread the book. Actually I think I’ll type the list and tape it to mirror or cupboard door as a daily reminder of my new path.
Many thanks to the author for this book. Learning is great, but still you must apply and do it. He has many tips to assist.
In "The Procrastination Cure" Damon Zahariades offers a complete toolkit for overcoming procrastination. In his words, the book is "chock-full of operational tactics." Although the 21 anti-procrastination methods he offers might seem a little overwhelming, he suggests that you work on just one of them each week.
I think the single the most important approach presented in this book is to commit ourselves to doing only a "mini step" toward the task that we've been avoiding. Zahariades covers time-based mini steps in "Tactic #2: Do The First 10 Minutes", and task-based mini steps in "Tactic #11: Take Small Steps." Surprisingly often, performing a mini step dissolves our resistance and leads us to spontaneously continue performing the desired task. It's as if the mini step "quantum tunnels" right through the barrier of resistance that keeps us from doing what we need to do. Harvard instructor Tal Ben-Shahar, Ph.D., said that this approach is the single most important technique to emerge from research on procrastination.
For those who want to get started immediately with the mini-step tactic, without having to read books or make plans, I created a free iPhone app called "Mini Steps: End Procrastination, Build Good Habits." I think the app is a great companion to "The Procrastination Cure," and I'd love to get your feedback on it.
