The following book might save your life.
Pretty crazy claim, right?
But hear me out: if you pay close attention to the words you’re about to read and implement the strategies that I recommend, then this information could have a significant impact on your life. It could help you prevent personal catastrophe.
How can I say this with 100% certainty?
Well, it relates to a simple word that has hundreds of meanings (depending on who you talk to).
That word is procrastination.
We all have a basic understanding of what this word means. Look it up in a dictionary and you’ll see a definition like this one from Dictionary.com: “The act or habit of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention.”
But how we procrastinate and what we procrastinate on differs from person to person:
· A student will procrastinate in school, waiting until the last minute to study for a test or write a term paper.
· A professional will procrastinate on a work-related task because it’s challenging and requires hard work.
· And an athlete might procrastinate on getting an injury checked out because he or she doesn’t want to miss an important game.
We all have personal reasons for procrastinating. And it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking it’s not a big deal. You might even say to yourself: “It’s just a bad habit that I have, but it’s not that big of a deal.”
The truth is that procrastination can have a severe effect on your life. It could even create a life-or-death situation. For instance, let’s say you’re experiencing pain and discomfort in your chest. Nine times out of ten, it might be nothing. But there’s a small chance that it’s a warning sign of an impending heart attack.
I hope this book will able to help you to learn how to counteract laziness, set aims, develop self-discipline, manage your habits and end procrastinating.
