Okay, I should stop procrastinating and get back to work now.
I can find no fault with Dr. Pychyl’s methodology or the writing etc. When you finish the book however, you are once again faced with whether or not to commit to tackling this problem. I think there’s an old saying from AA that goes, “Working the program is simple, but it ain’t easy.” The book is nothing but words on a page if one isn’t quite ready to commit, because what’s contained in this book is about as good as it gets, so faulting the book won't be the problem if one doesn't start. The instructions are easy and understandable, yet the process. . . maybe not.
Dr. Pychyl is also forthright about the uphill climb in tackling procrastination. What a well-worn groove this behavior is. So it’s best to go into to it with your eyes open and maybe even use Post It notes or other methods to remind yourself that you’ll find reasons why not to continue. That in itself is probably the best reason “to”continue. Good luck!
