There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But this book is different. It's almost purely based on practical, actionable tips you can start right now. There are lots of practical tips throughout the book, and they're combined in the helpful action guide as well to reference quickly. There are 15 (!) one-time actions you can take now to reduce procrastination, as well as habits to build and emergency techniques to use.
I waited a few days after reading the book to write this review to see how well the advice stuck. It's been on point. I've kept up the implementation intentions and other techniques for about a week now, and they're actually getting easier.
If you're looking for a brand-new theory or system, look elsewhere. But if you want proven techniques you can start immediately to stop putting things off, buy this book.
Speaking of habits and addictions, here comes the crucial part:
"Without awareness, change is at best luck-based or incidental. Think about it: If you’re not aware of what’s going wrong in your life, how are you going to fix it? If you don’t realize how, when, where, and why you procrastinate, how are you going to prevent it?"
Even if you've taken the step of finding this book and reading my review, you're already on your way. You've already taken the first step. Now keep going and at least get to Chapter 2. Then you'll be on your way to a new, happier, lighter, and more productive life.
I should know. I was a procrastinator too. I overcame it and now I'm living the life I always wanted to live. You can too.
I also really loved the willpower section of the book. I'm not sure how much I'll actually use it, but at least I see a complete roadmap for overcoming procrastination in the long-term.
Overall, short and very helpful read!
