Reseña del editor
Everyone procrastinates. We live in a world surrounded by constant distractions (Facebook or Twitter, anyone?) and endless choices, which both lead to lack of focus and decision paralysis. As a result, we end up procrastinating which in turn can lead to mistakes at work and home, and actually make it impossible to achieve long-term happiness.While there are tips and tricks online on how to improve one's efficiency, no one has created a complete how-to that is backed by science and also easy-to-understand. At the core of this book are simple and practical tools for personal development, which will help you with your motivation, efficiency, productivity and long-term satisfaction. You will learn: - what decision paralysis is and why it has such a negative effect on us - how human motivation works and how properly to set it in order to work in the long-term - how to find a personal vision, define your strengths and use them to do meaningful things - how your brain works from the perspective of self-control. How to strengthen your willpower - how to increase efficiency. - how to learn new positive habits and unlearn the bad ones - how to organise tasks and time so that you can do more without getting tired - how to manage your own failures better - how to overcome the fear of change

It's broken up onto four sections:
1) Using Motivation
2) Being Disciplined
3) The Outcomes of Your Actions
4) Objectivity and False Perceptions.
Let me just say that this was the perfect way to set up the book, and I would encourage people to visit each and take good notes. However, the execution is lacking. The voice that comes across when reading is humorless and droning. The vocabulary seems to indicate this book is for academics.
I wouldn't recommend this to friends. I might recommend it to people I know in education, but I doubt they'd want to spend their free time with a textbook no matter how helpful.
For that reason, I seem to love to read about goal setting and procrastination cures and even use that "study" as a way to procrastinate.
Well, this book and method may actually help get me back on track and moving forward.
Well researched and footnoted, using plenty of scientific data, studies and references, much of which I have admittedly come across before, the book is not written in text book speak. It has a conversational, nonthreatening style. Besides telling us about the method, and showing it for easier and longer lasting retention, this book explains in easily understood wording why these steps work.
The author also offers links to downloadble additional resources.
Don't expect to read through this book quickly and be "cured" of your procrastination habits. It is designed to be referred back to and used as reinforcement. There are restart methods built into the system. I suggest reading through it completely, getting supplies so you can keep track of your efforts and actions, and then read it again, more slowly, taking action and building habits as you read. Later you will be able to better access your results and can reread sections with which you need more support.
Thank you to Netgalley and St Martin's Press for allowing me to read this copy.
I do feel as if the book is making me think more clearly about my daily choices and actions taken.
I go through bouts of procrastination - always have - and so I was thrilled to be granted an advanced copy of this book! At first, I struggled with the author's voice; it was a bit of a turn-off for me. But as I continued and progressed into the specifics and the science of procrastination, that kind of faded to the background.
Petr was great at highlighting actionable steps to take to utilise the science. He has a toolbox full of tools to help end procrastination and it's very easy to understand. The reason I didn't give this book more stars is because nothing felt earth-shattering. Also, I stepped away for a few days during vacation and picked it up to finish later and I'd forgotten most of the points that had been made.
It was certainly a good read and I'd happily recommend it to anyone who:
- sees their procrastination as an impediment
- enjoys learning
- is self-employed and needs to motivate themselves
As a writer, and as a human being trying to keep my life in order, I found that setting and keeping to priorities among the many clamoring for my time was my greatest weakness. While many of these chapters held multitude of solutions it was near the end that I got a breakthrough. It was a simple mind-map exercise that's often used by creative people to generate ideas. The authors suggested using this tool to randomly record my to-do items on a blank sheet of paper, unlined is best, Then start connecting them from the most important to the least important, noticing connections where you might combine similar tasks to do at the same time. It doesn't take long really, and when you've finished that part it soon becomes clear which tasks will be first, which ones second and so on, including the ones you may decide to delegate or not do at all.
This was my breakthrough. But I do believe that anyone who finds themselves frequently procrastinating can make similar breakthroughs. This will also be helpful to those who find themselves in temporary but overwhelming situations. For this reason, I recommend the book to everyone.
