Publisher's Summary

Practical, psychological methods to turn your thoughts into reality, instead of endless avoidance and laziness. 

Transform from struggling with getting off your butt, to a machine of productivity and self-discipline. Create an action bias in your life - starting now.

How to break inertia, overthinking, paralysis, sloth, and insecurity. 

Take Rapid Action deconstructs the psychology of laziness and why tomorrow always sounds like a better idea. This book is many things at once: a shot of motivation, a spark of fire, an understanding of your brain, and a list of techniques to get into motion. 

This is one of the most valuable skills you’ll ever gain, because only action matters in life, not good intentions.

Gain the ability to get things done and hit your goals, no matter the circumstances. 

Patrick King is an internationally best-selling author and social skills coach. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience. 

Stop saying “I’ll do it later/tomorrow...” and overhaul your mindset for productivity and efficiency. 

  • The Premortem Analysis and the Ostrich Theory - how they can quiet your overthinking 
  • How comfortable inaction is sabotaging you
  • Actionable and applicable rules to get started before you feel 100% ready
     

How to create motion and take the first step from complete stillness. 

  • How to defeat procrastination by “bundling” 
  • Strategically plan your days to prevent laziness and distraction
  • What you think is action, but is actually a waste of time  

Become a machine of proactive energy and activity. 

Action and results are the only things that matter in the world. Not your planning, intentions, or nice thoughts. This book puts action at the forefront of your brain and makes it nearly impossible to stay still. That’s precisely what will get you ahead in life. Taking that first step is always hard, but it doesn’t have to be. 

The more action you take, the luckier you become. Take that first step by scrolling up and clicking the buy now button at the top right of this page!

Take Action and get this!!!

I really like this audio book. It came just at the right time with what I’m going through in life. If you really want to change, if you wanna make your dreams come true, and overall if you want a better life, you must take action. The author really breaks down and gives practical ways one can stop overthinking and just go for whatever desire they have.

Surprisingly good

The book started and at first, I was like "Oh no, it's one of those books that tell you what you already know and sings the general motivational songs"
I stucked with it because I have a minimum 20% before jumping ship on books, and I am glad I did.
Absolutely great especially on the aspects of indecision and procrastination. Introduces techniques and actionable examples. Cuts to the chase.
