Publisher's Summary

Stop procrastinating looking for the best book to do something about procrastinating! If you want to know where this bad habit comes from, you've landed in the right place. This book is not about productivity, nor is it about time management. Unlike other self-help or medical books, Stop Procrastination is a guide to help you understand what procrastination is and how to deal with it.

Procrastinating is not just surfing social media in the office or walking the dog to avoid schoolwork. It affects our output and also our physical and mental health. Whether out of laziness, lack of motivation, or fear, there is always a reason why we prefer to delay - consciously or not.

That's why Dan Home delves into the roots of our anxiety to evade responsibility in an audiobook that explores some cases of procrastination studied by professionals in psychology and productivity.

To stop procrastination, you must first know how to help yourself. In this book, you'll find truthful information by experts in the field and also obtain valuable professional advice to have better results in your daily life.

Some things you'll learn from this audiobook:

  • Definition of procrastination
  • Overview of cases of procrastination
  • The psychology behind procrastination
  • Effects of procrastination 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Procrastination and motivation
  • Top 20 science-based strategies to overcome the laziness and procrastination
  • Ways to apply key ideas for the best results? 

Stop Procrastination is for anyone and of any age, regardless of their occupation. This is for those who want to improve their lives and understand how to manage it. Change your habits, and start doing your tasks!

FAQs

1. Am I a procrastinator?

Procrastination is the habit of putting things off, whether out of anxiety, laziness, or a lack of motivation. It's about avoiding things for unconscious or psychological reasons.

2. How do I recognize that I am a procrastinator?

Look for patterns. If you feel uncomfortable doing activities for no reason, it's because you're resisting to something related to procrastination.

3. Is procrastination a psychological disorder?

There are cases in which the procrastinator drops because he feels fear, anxiety, or frustration. That could be a psychological problem. In cases when people seldom need a pause, that's not a reason to suspect a disorder.

4. Why do I need this book?

If you feel that you avoid your tasks but don't know why, now is a great time to find out if you are a procrastinator or not.

1st half not so good, 2nd half is great

The first half of this book sounds like the narrator is reading a term paper from a college student focused on why college students procrastinate. The narrator reads every heading and bullet point at a nauseating slow pace making it a difficult listen. Just as I was going to turn this book off and give up on it, a new narrator jumps in midstream and saves the day. The direction changes to providing real life adult scenarios and actionable remedies to problematic procrastination behaviors. Overall I gave this book 3 stars all around because of the rocky start. I can't believe I am the only review with less than 5 stars. Did we listen to the same book?

I think this is a reliable audible for us

Very VERY well presented. The audiobook doesn’t get bogged down in redundant or unnecessary hyperbole, keeping the audiobook brief and to the point yet doesn’t miss any of the working points. This audible is a nice little audible for learning how to simplify your life and live more “in-the-moment.

This is a great book for me

I am extremely upbeat that I discovered this book it has helped me to see things in a newlight. I have heard a few remarks about the manner in which this book is composed and how she is offending the peruser, I accept there are a few people (such as myself) who need to hear things along these lines for it to stand out enough to be noticed and make us think.

Thanks author for sharing this audible.

I liked this audio book because it stated things I already knew in a manner that was fresh and more appealing. The easy going tone of the author as well as the chunked content also made it a good listen.
