20 percent of people admit to being procrastinators and an untold number never admit to it at all. Procrastination is an epidemic that can only be eliminated if the underlying causes are uncovered. Yet there's very little understanding of how to let go of procrastination, how to recognize and diffuse the feelings that lead to it, and most importantly, how to develop the ab ...more

Of mixed usefulness.

Some sugestions, like just doing a solid 15 minutes on a task when you feel overwhelmed, are very practical.

Being told that I transmit my emotions to others "telepathically" (p. 20)? Less useful.

Pages 189 & 190 summarize the whole book:

1/ Allot small increments of time to one single task at a time, to allow yourself to learn to stay on task.

2/ Set small achieveable goals to accomplish by the day, week, month, and quarter.

3/ Practice performing actions. Goals are easy:

مبدئيا كتاب لطيف جداً ..زاد من حجم الوعي بالمشكلة اللي الواحد أبتدع فيها بكل الطرق..
جميل أن تلاقي كتاب بيوصف حاجات بتمر بيها ..ويديك الأمل إنه خد خطوة والدنيا هتتغير بإذن الله ..
لغته هادئة ..وتشعر بذلك التكرار الذي يركزّ لك على المشاكل ..وتشعر كأنك تريد أن تقول له "ماخلاص يابا الحاج"

لنا عودة بريفيو كامل :]

I don't know why I read self-help books anymore. I am sure I have pretty much covered everything there is to read about productivity at this point.

Why did I even read this books? I don't even procrastinate!

Am I becoming a "productivity geek"? Oh, the horror. Next thing you'd know that I'll start carrying a moleskin notebook everywhere and read lifehacker.

This book was good. It really covered the different kinds of procrastinators and the reasons why people procrastinate. I agree wholeheartedly that procrastination is not a cause but an effect and that it takes time to get used to NOT being a procrastinator once that cause is narrowed down to a treatable point.

He utilizes steps from the AA's 12-step program which is fine, except when he emphasizes the use to surrendering to God. I'm all about spirituality, I'm a Buddhist after all, but the Combs

Like all self-help books, they are only as helpful as you are willing to let it be. If you don't put it into practical use, congratulations, you just have a little more knowledge on a topic.

This book is actually inspirational as I'm sure the author is as well. The entire book is oozing with his enthusiastic character and personality. He probably lives out this stuff every minute of the day. For most people though, this kind of over extreme desire to be productive is unrealistic. It sounds exhau

Why did I read this? The author says that no attention has been paid to procrastination. Where does he live, really? This book made me sick

I didn't learn anything new. It was a good motivational book, but didn't have practical steps to overcome procrastination in daily life.
