Fantastic Book, Now to Read it Again and Take Action!

Wow, Mr. Zahariades knows what he’s talking about and it’s refreshing to be able to relate and identify with throughout the book. Not heavy at all with the science going on in the brain, simple and straightforward for any audience. Now that I’ve been through it once I’m encouraged to sit a couple more times through it and use it as a tool with all the tools it provides to take control of curing my deeply engrained procrastination strategies. I’m a 71 out of a possible 75 score so it’s not going to easy I’m sure however I feel very hopeful and confident that if I apply these understandings and strategies I can be a success and no longer my own biggest critic. Perhaps even tame my inner perfectionist. That would be an added bonus! Thank you Damon for this invaluable resource ! I definitely recommend this short, easy listen !

Don’t buy

Not worth it.
Read a lot of self-help books, this is nothing but common sense and basic knowledge, impossibly boring to listen too.
Read or listen to “Rewire” by Richard O’Connor instead, that book I’m listening for 5th time over now.

Full of practical actions to stop procrastinating.

I loved it - particularly the breakdown of different types and reasons for procrastination and how to match up the right cure.

Great advice!

The Procrastination Cure really nails it! How does Damon know that I sneak off to Facebook or Words with Friends to avoid doing what I need to do? His concrete 21 steps are a big help.

Very informative and to the point.

I like the way the author related his past stories and experiences to illustrate some material in the textbook.

Ment to do this yesterday

The 21 tactics are not new - What is new are the ways he shares how he implemented them. In our book club we spend 9 days reviewing this and it was powerful to have the level if dialogue about how we are each hindered by our own procrastination. Thanks for the book, thanks for the audio and thanks for the simple solutions. It's working!
