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?

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?

Recommend this audiobook!

Its a matter of making and having good habits. He outlines what those habits are and how to become more productive. I have listen the aduiobook, but the way that this author puts forth the ideas in the Pompadour method are far more inspirational and effective. I look forward to other aduiobooks from this author! The last thing a person who procrastinates needs is a boring audiobook. I like this one.

Love this audiobook

When I began listening this audiobook, immediately I understood that Spencer gets it. His portrayal of the battle that a chronic procrastinator experiences once a day is right on the money. The more I read the more I understood there is another exit from lingering. I was truly amazed that I was utilizing his recommendation effectively while perusing his audiobook, and I had the option to peruse it across the board sitting, something that I have never finished with an audio book. Extraordinary audiobook and incredible counsel.

Practical audiobook to attack procrastination!

I love that the author was short on theory and long on practice and that he zeroed right in on real and common procrastination pitfalls such as social media, binge-watching series, video games, etc. It also helps enormously that he was a world class procrastinator, worse than most of us!
