Procrastination is as natural as the urge to eat or sleep. But just because it’s natural doesn’t make it desirable. It consumes energy, frequently damages your reputation, and reduces other people’s productivity as well as your own. Although it may be impossible to stop procrastinating completely, you can drastically reduce the tendency to procrastinate by applying a variety of simple strategies. This book clarifies what procrastination involves, explains how to identify it, and how to apply the strategies that will drastically reduce its occurrence. Procrastinate less and you will increase your efficiency, feel better about yourself, and get the important things done.
If you are a chronic procrastinator, i.e., you intentionally and habitually postpone tasks that should be done now, you will gain the most from reading this brief book and immediately applying some of its suggestions. But the book provides advice in helping staff members or others reduce their tendency to procrastinate as well.
