Great book but horrible narrator!

The purpose for my purchase was to identify the cause and stop my chronic procrastination. The book does a wonderful job of identifying ways to overcome excessive procrastination. However the monotone voice of the narrator makes the book a chore to continue listening. The book itself is a must read.

Good book

Hope I get to using some of the techniques. my only issue was that it seems like some of the success stories were filler. I mean I stopped comparing myself to Jayz when I was a teenager. it possible that I've read so many books about self help now that I've dissected the books and how they are written and not applied enough of the tools inside. My brand of procrastination maybe. very well thought out and the concepts and I'deas were fully fleshed out.

Poorly written but contains some useful tips.

This book is poorly written and needs to be proofread and redone if it is to be worth revisiting. Audio books are very useful as they can be revisited easily, if they are worthy of being listened to again. Therein lies their usefulness. I often listen to a well-written book up to three times. This is one I will not revisit.

Smart guide.

It’s very appealing for a self-development junkie like me. While the book has introduced fresh ideas, I heard some procedures which I used before. It felt good to know the author and I have the same point of view. It’s a book I’ll never get tired of.

Everything makes sense.

I used to be in Jim’s shoes -always delaying things. The guide questions have been so useful. I learned how to stop and take time to accept the small steps along the way to a big aim, rather of worrying about the end result. This will better actually get to the end product/state.

Ready to write down my to-do list!

Not that I’m biased in any way, but I have to commend this piece. It didn’t leave any stones unturned. Also, this book is unique in showing the connection between procrastination and negative feeling states. The author did a wonderful job!

I'm cool with this.

I actually put off buying this when I saw this in audible last month and finally downloaded this yesterday. It doesn't only focused on the "why" but it has some great "what to do" parts.

One great audio guide.

It is true. It has tried and tested anti-procrastination techniques. Another reason that drove me to pursue change is the lively voice of the speaker. That and the great content are enough reasons to grab this and make it as your proper guidance.

Procrastination training

I don’t mind training everyday if it means being able to beat procrastination in the end. I always feel unproductive and this is affecting my self-esteem already. The collection of advice is sensible. No doubt, Jacob Greene engaged his readers in an interesting discussion.

Better listen to it until the end to be educated.

Lisa Grieves is awesome! There are some ideas here which I found to be odd at first. Like, procrastination can be good in some ways. Good thing I gave this a chance. I was enlightened afterwards.
