How to Stop Procrastinating Right Now – 7 Techniques

by on Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Being honest with you guys, I have to admit that I procrastinated about writing this piece! Which only goes to prove that I truly do procrastinate on things all the time. It’s a habit in my life and it’s one I’d like to BREAK. So, I turned to to offer of reviewing an e-book on how to stop procrastinating by Trevor Johnson and published by Stonham House Publishing Company.

 

7 techniques to help you stop procrastinating and get things done:

* How to decide whether to procrastinate
* Monitor how you currently spend your time (< be present, be accountable for your minutes!)
* Does ‘Just Do It’ actually work?
* Why starting with the smallest things first causes you to procrastinate
* How to split up stuff into smaller chunks
* Do you like rewards or punishments? (< I like both! And honestly, both work to motivate me.)
* How to manage your attention span to your advantage
* Find out how to stop chasing bright shiny objects all the time
* Go public with your agenda (< Probably one that works the best for me)

 

The introduction reminds you of the reasons why procrastination doesn’t help you. I do feel like a lot of the techniques are things we’ve heard over the years and we know we want to do, but forget about easily. I did agree with everything mentioned.

This is written and referred to as a “report” and it’s definietly something that’s dry without a personable writing voice. But that means you can get through it quickly, and re-read it whenever you find yourself slipping back into procrastination. The author is definietly someone who has researched things, comes across as intelligent, and has outlined everything to be absorbed very easily.

I do think that for this to improve it should have had more of a personal approach and more examples so that it becomes especially memorable in your mind, and becomes something you want to re-read. It’s definitely worth one read, and luckily it’s a very low price. I also think that there should be an “about the author” bit. When reading I wanted to know who was Trevor, what is his job and what are his qualifications, that kind of stuff.
