The Now Habit

A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play
by Neil Fiore | Putnam © 2007 · 224 pages

You ever procrastinate? Me, too. D'oh! This is an *awesome* book to help get at the underlying psychological issues/behaviorial patterns that are driving the show when we procrastinate (The Pursuit of Perfect is another great one for that, btw) and we'll have fun getting out of perfectionism and into facing our fears with baby steps in the right direction as we replace the self-defeating thoughts with more empowering ones.

“A complete treatment of procrastination must address the underlying blocked needs that cause a person to resort to procrastination. The Now Habit starts with a new definition: Procrastination is a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision. From this definition it follows that those most vulnerable to procrastination are those who feel the most threatened by difficulty in starting a project, criticism, failure, and the loss of other opportunities that may result from committing to one project.”

You ever procrastinate?

Me, too. In fact, I *totally* procrastinated on writing this Note!!! (Seriously. Hehehehe. :)

If you ever find yourself procrastinating more than you’d like, I *highly* recommend the book. It was one of the first books I read on my Kindle and I highlighted nearly the whole thing. It’s PACKED with great Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites with you!

No need to procrastinate. Let’s jump right in. :)
