Publisher's Summary

Are you thinking of learning how to increase your productivity and break bad habits?

If you are looking for a method that allows you to break many of your bad habits and increase the things you usually procrastinate, this is a book for you.

From imagination to reality...

Ever happened to procrastinate? We know exactly what we want and need to do, yet we waste hours losing ourselves in useless activities or wandering the internet aimlessly.

Hey...we are not robots: A little break is sometimes due, but as we continue to procrastinate we do nothing but push ourselves into a vicious circle, where frustration and poor results play a team game against our self-esteem.

What to do in these cases? How to fight procrastination? Below are the objectives of the book that will allow you to solve your problems with procrastination.

Book Objectives: 

  • Universal rules that increase productivity and stimulate us to do better.
  • Methods to break bad habits.
  • Eliminate exhaustion and discover how to work with intense focus for hours.
  • The four reasons why we continue to procrastinate and how to defeat them.
  • How to find your priorities.

Target Users:

  • Anyone who wants to start acting, plan your activities can be an excellent idea, but if you continue to do your activities, without ever starting, you are just making fun of yourself.
  • For those who must make a decision. Procrastination arises from a world, a conflict between what you think and what you (do not) do. Thinking well can be useful, but only actions can really increase your self-esteem.
  • For those who want to face their fears. It is very simple to live in an imaginary world where our desires are realized without effort; it is much more complex to take the initiative and make those dreams come true.

  • Types of procrastination.
  • Change anxious thoughts, feelings, and action .
  • Organize yourself.

Important Guide

To me, a hard to motivate procrastinator, this guide has provided a couple useful methods to get going. I won't fool you, there's a lot more I could be doing, but of all the books I've listen on the subject, this is the one that has helped me the most.

Co-authored by Google translate.

While there is probably good advice here, you will get a splitting headache trying to decipher the often bizarre syntax in this book.

Couldn't finish the book.

Couldn't finish the book. The narrator had no animation to engage the listener. The story was not edited at any level to make it audio friendly which was mad worse by the narrator.

I'm impressed!

A couple of instances of tips talked about are just to quit arranging and begin doing, the "Five-Minute" rule, which underscores doing whatever you can in only five minutes, and to do the hardest things first. These are little instruments that can be utilized consistently to use time generally adequately. I'm impressed!

Awful narration

I can’t profess to say I’ve gin through the whole book as the narration is simply terrible. Incorrect intonation and poor rising sentence cadences make it very hard to read. Don’t waste a credit.

Uninspiring - had to stop

My mistake and lesson for the future, was not listening to the sample audio. At first I thought it was some kind of computer narration tool that was being used Sorry Chet but your delivery does not suit my preferred style. I imagined a book on curing procrastination would be delivered in an upbeat manner. When it got to the bit when "your laziness" was referred to I stopped. In my opinion and experience procrastination is not about laziness. There may well have been gifts to be had in persevering and listening further but I couldn't. Do give it a go as the book has good reviews, so obviously hits the mark for some people but listen to the sample.

Disappointing & a bit of a trudge

The irony of this book is that it takes ages to get going.
The narration is slow and robotic and the info is advice you can get from Google/common sense but padded out.
There are a few good points to take away, but it's not great.
I think this one will be returned

To the point and full of useful tips and tricks

I had listen this book in a matter of hours through the day . It kept me interested and it was to the point and full of useful tips and tricks . It did not drag on with a lot of science of how things work but enought to make the point of why it works without boring you with extensive scientific explanations. And the reread factor is pretty good if you need to go over some topics again .

Actionable plans

I liked this book because it gives you active exercises that you can start right away to stop procrastinating. I would have liked to see a little more about our evolutionary triggers that make us procrastinate

EASY - easy to list, easy to understand

EASY - easy to list, easy to understand. I selected the book based on the title and found it speaks to most common problems when procrastinating - including wanting more and more info about stuff and then not doing anything. BUT Damon provides simple, actionable steps in an easy to listen, conversational style. I have since listen many of his books and really enjoy all of them.

All it takes is one great idea to change your life

All it takes is one great idea to change your life. Knowing a sweet reward awaits because you paired it with a job that is difficult helps get the difficult thing out of the way first, enjoyment next, and procrastination is gone! Great book with great ideas.
