Publisher's Summary

Do you struggle to get up every morning? Do you find that getting yourself to do the dishes or get your work done on time is like pulling teeth? Would you rather be doing just about anything other than spending time working on what you know that you must? If so, then keep reading.

Procrastination is the constant attempt to push off work that needs to be done. It could be in favor of spending time to yourself, doing something that matters, or it could be due to underlying causes, such as anxiety, depression, or even just being burnt out. When you procrastinate, you end up pushing off what you need to do and really only make your situations worse. After procrastinating, you usually end up with more work to do, more suffering, and more shame about why you keep doing this, despite knowing that it hurts you and knowing that you need to figure out how to defeat it.

You may feel embarrassed that you struggle to get yourself moving in the mornings. You may feel like you are ashamed of the fact that you are afraid of failure. You may desperately want to succeed but feel like at the end of the day, doing nothing is better than trying.

If this sounds like you, you may need to develop more self-discipline. When you are self-disciplined, you can make sure that you are always doing what you need to in life. You ensure that you are constantly working toward your goals and choosing to forego feeling that sense of instant gratification in favor of making sure that you are working toward your long-term goals. When you are self-disciplined, you can make sure that you always choose to do what you must because you need to make it happen, and that is a powerful tool to have in your pocket. This audiobook is here to guide you through the development of self-discipline, and you will find the following in these sections:

  • Information on what self-discipline is and what the self-discipline mindset is.
  • Discovering the procrastination monster and how self-discipline can defeat it.
  • How to identify, understand, and defeat paralysis by analysis.
  • How to begin to set goals to defeat procrastination.
  • How to manage your time better to avoid falling for procrastination’s charm.
  • How to work to reward your progress.
  • How to let go of that fear of failure once and for all.
  • Several exercises in developing self-discipline.
  • And more. 

No matter how long you have spent buried underneath your tendency to procrastinate, you can defeat it. You can learn to say, “No more!” and take it down once and for all. Even if you have been procrastinating your whole life or if you feel like you are a lost cause, you can learn to take control once and for all. All you have to do is work to develop your self-discipline.

Do not let procrastination take another day away from you. Stop yourself from continuing to waste your time failing at your goals. Get the audiobook today to take back your power.

Must read/listen

Author knows exactly what I am doing as a super procrastinator 😂 and he recommends solutions or calls out consequences. And it is so simple yet genius.
I already feel better & I have started making slow but steady progress. The voice in my head says oh darn, for lil pleasure if I procrastinate I am going make ‘a mountain of a molehill’. So I have been at it. Need to listen to this guy more times and that way it will stay in my head longer and the success rate at overcoming procrastinating is bigger!😊

Nothing new

Sadly did not learn anything new from this audiobook. I found that it was filled with mainly basic statements "procrastination wastes a lot of time... set smart goals."

This book is mind-blowing.

The book has been an inspiration to me as it offered insightful help on how to improve discipline on yourself. Needless to say that without implementing the advice the book will not work its magic.

I would recommend this book to friends, family, also co-workers. This book does give us the science behind it. But I do know they're more to come.
