Learn how to overcome procrastination and enjoy guilt-free play! One of the most effective programs to combat procrastination, THE NOW HABIT has sold over 100,000 copies, has been translated into 11 languages, and is now revised and updated. Featuring a new introduction and a new section providing strategies to understand and deal with the role technology plays in procrastination today, THE NOW HABIT offers a comprehensive plan to help readers lower their stress and increase their time to enjoy guilt-free play. Dr. Fiore's techniques will help any busy person start tasks sooner and accomplish them more quickly, without the anxiety brought on by the negative habits of procrastination and perfectionism.
I don’t really suffer from procrastination, but I wanted to read this as research material for a project I’m working on after I’d heard great things about it. The Now Habit dives in to the psychology of why we procrastinate, essentially it’s because we want to protect ourselves from anxiety or fear.
The book is a practical, self help strategy that you can use to identify the exact anxieties you have that cause you to procrastinate and then exercises and behavioural patterns to remove those anxieties and blockages and actually start on the projects you are procrastinating over.
It’s short, to the point and offers a workable solution if procrastination is an issue you face.
