Publisher's Summary

Are you thinking of learning how to increase your productivity and break bad habits?

If you are looking for a method that allows you to break many of your bad habits and increase the things you usually procrastinate, this is a book for you.

From imagination to reality...

Ever happened to procrastinate? We know exactly what we want and need to do, yet we waste hours losing ourselves in useless activities or wandering the internet aimlessly.

Hey...we are not robots: A little break is sometimes due, but as we continue to procrastinate we do nothing but push ourselves into a vicious circle, where frustration and poor results play a team game against our self-esteem.

What to do in these cases? How to fight procrastination? Below are the objectives of the book that will allow you to solve your problems with procrastination.

Book Objectives: 

  • Universal rules that increase productivity and stimulate us to do better.
  • Methods to break bad habits.
  • Eliminate exhaustion and discover how to work with intense focus for hours.
  • The four reasons why we continue to procrastinate and how to defeat them.
  • How to find your priorities.

Target Users:

  • Anyone who wants to start acting, plan your activities can be an excellent idea, but if you continue to do your activities, without ever starting, you are just making fun of yourself.
  • For those who must make a decision. Procrastination arises from a world, a conflict between what you think and what you (do not) do. Thinking well can be useful, but only actions can really increase your self-esteem.
  • For those who want to face their fears. It is very simple to live in an imaginary world where our desires are realized without effort; it is much more complex to take the initiative and make those dreams come true.

Co-authored by Google translate.

While there is probably good advice here, you will get a splitting headache trying to decipher the often bizarre syntax in this book.

Couldn't finish the book.

Couldn't finish the book. The narrator had no animation to engage the listener. The story was not edited at any level to make it audio friendly which was mad worse by the narrator.

Highly Recommended

The part about how to shorten your daily To-Do List was an eye opener. I didn't realize that having too many things on my list was counter productive. Or that it produced negative feelings when I didn't get to cross everything off that day.Should provide most readers with the cause and related cure to their form of procrastination.

Thorough and intelligent approach

All the whys and hows of the procrastination/productivity dilemna. Difficult to imagine any reasonable person would not benefit, and greatly so, having read and implemented the procedures detailed.

Awful narration

I can’t profess to say I’ve gin through the whole book as the narration is simply terrible. Incorrect intonation and poor rising sentence cadences make it very hard to read. Don’t waste a credit.

Uninspiring - had to stop

My mistake and lesson for the future, was not listening to the sample audio. At first I thought it was some kind of computer narration tool that was being used Sorry Chet but your delivery does not suit my preferred style. I imagined a book on curing procrastination would be delivered in an upbeat manner. When it got to the bit when "your laziness" was referred to I stopped. In my opinion and experience procrastination is not about laziness. There may well have been gifts to be had in persevering and listening further but I couldn't. Do give it a go as the book has good reviews, so obviously hits the mark for some people but listen to the sample.

Disappointing & a bit of a trudge

The irony of this book is that it takes ages to get going.
The narration is slow and robotic and the info is advice you can get from Google/common sense but padded out.
There are a few good points to take away, but it's not great.
I think this one will be returned
