OFF YOUR BUTT!!!
I laughed alot. there were many.
Sincere and funny. Great performance. Passionate and Easy on the ears.
Her Many quips had me laughing and commiserating.
One of my favorites I put on to get going on the hateful housework.
Yes, it is simple and down to earth. As a basic approach to the problem is quite good.
Disappointment. Easy to read, good as a first approach to the subject, good tips on how to control chaos, but it only tackles the surface of the problem. At the end, it is another set of Time Management advises, but as such, it is very enjoyable and practical.
The problem is that procrastinator's problem is not what to do when they get in action, the problem is what prevents them from getting in action.
The way that Rita explains the reasons why we procrastinate. I think it helps to understand why we do it.
Rita. She is like talking to your next door neighbor. No stories about how she consulted for this corporation or this government agency. Just great homespun advice. But, it is deep and well thought out.
Get over it and and just give it a try.
Together with 'eat that frog',also available on Audible, this short audiobook is an excellent motivational and inspirational work that gets one cracking at the tasks which have been postponed time and time again. Perfect for listening to during the long cummutation hours to work.
Enjoyed this book. More importantly, I learned a lot of tips to improve my focus and decrease procrastination. Excellent narration as well.
This is the title that kick-started my Audible.com membership. Rita Emmett's approach is clear, sensible, and best of all easy to apply right away. Listening to this book started a major, positive change in my life. "The Procrastinator's Handbook" has a permanent place on my iPod. Thank you, Rita Emmett!
Do not buy this book, look elsewhere for advice or a system for getting organized. I only gave it one star because the system doesn't allow no stars. I didn't finish more than 1/3rd of the book-it is very boring, lots of useless anecdotes and suggestions that are either common sense or you have probably already heard somewhere else. It is unbelievable to me that this book was published recently, it seems like something written 20 years ago, and not that useful then, either. The only useful thing I got out of it was the idea that procrastination can sometimes come out of passive-agressive resistance to doing something imposed on you: your boss wants you to do something, you don't want to, so you put it off. Not earthshattering, but kind of useful. That is it; after a while I was too bored (and had too many things to do, which I had procrastinated on...) so I stopped listening.
...or have been asleep since 1990.
This book was released in 2001? It was written for things I recall in 1980. Take a class in "word processing"? WTF!?!?!?

I haven't found them time to finish the entire book but the first few minutes seem to offer some helpful tips.
