Publisher's Summary

One in five people are chronic procrastinators. Are you one of them? 

A pile of urgent work papers lay on the left side of your desk. Your phone is on your right. Which do you reach for first?

Most people would likely grab for the phone, backing up their decision with measly excuses such as, “It’ll only be five minutes, and then I’ll get right back to it,” or, “I just need to check my messages real quick.”

Do you really need to? Or do you just want to? There’s a difference there, and that’s what you need to figure out.

You may be thinking, “So what? Yes, I procrastinate. I’m not a bad person for doing so.”

Of course not, but it’s not like it’s doing you any good putting off important tasks for another time, either. Not only are you sabotaging the potential to have more free time, but you are also harming your career or education, depending on where you are in life.

On top of that, you’re putting your overall well-being at risk, as chronic procrastination increases the risk of low self-esteem, feelings of worthlessness, and stress.

Put a stop to your constant suffering and find out how you can turn your habits around.

In How to Stop Procrastinating, you will discover:

  • A powerful technique utilizing just two minutes of your time that will motivate you to complete the task at hand 
  • The secret to finding the perfect balance of self-control and motivation, paving the way for future success 
  • Why procrastination isn’t just another word for laziness, as well as how you can get down to the bottom of your self-destructive habits and demolish them once and for all 
  • The top 29 factors contributing to your habit of procrastination, and how to counter them 
  • How to effectively deal with temptations, yet get the best of both worlds at the same time 
  • The threat your routine can have on your journey towards making positive alterations in your life, including strategies to help make the process easier for yourself 
  • The number-one thing most people do that automatically sets you up for failure, and how to push yourself out of that dangerous mindset

And much more. 

Even if you’ve always considered yourself to be a chronic procrastinator, changing habits is something anyone can do no matter what stage of life you are in. Although the change may require a good deal of perseverance and effort, nothing worth having comes easy.

Through the use of the right procrastination-busting tools, you will not only enhance your emotional and mental health, but you will also increase the opportunity for promotions, career advancements, or higher class grades.

For something with such drastic life-changing potential, you may think it would require attending a lengthy seminar or two, or even signing up for an expensive month-long program. That, however, is definitely not the case - you can achieve the same benefits right at the comfort of your very own living room.

Stop wasting any more of your valuable time and make the change you so desperately need in order to get all your ducks in a row.
