Interesting perspective on getting the work done

The book has many useful ideas on how to get started and not lose time with nonsense, but it's a bit hard to follow in the first chapters at it uses way too much the "procrastination" word and it gets a little tiring to understand the essence of the book, so it just needs a little bit of improvement. The narration is pleasant.
