I loved this book because it was so short which means it got to the point very quickly. I haven't got the time (get it?!?!?) to listen to a 15 hour audiobook on this - i wanted something snappy, original and to the point and it is exactly what I got, for a very reasonable price. I am very happy with my purchase.
Very useful book, got to the point very quickly. It's like he was speaking directly to me! I have read a TON of books about my procrastination but this one was different because it gave me some REAL LIFE TIPS on how I can manage my life. It was like it was from MYYY point of view, not just some therapist telling me what to do and barking orders at me.
The narrator for this has a nice voice too. I like it when they have the smooth voices.
This book really hits the nail on the head. I'm a world class procrastinator and this book really helped me to understand WHY while offering some very sound advice to get me out of my bad habits. I'm feeling more productive already! Recommend! :)
Such a great book! I'd been a chronic procrastinator in so many aspects of my life and this book has helped remedy so many of them. Graham Bianco delves deeply into all corners of people's procrastination and with each instance he identifies the causes and puts across really comprehensive solutions and methods to overcoming your problems. The book flows extremely well and is also laid out in nice digestible parts so while you can listen to it start to finish, you can also jump in and out of different parts on quick listens. Great for the car journey to work. 5 out of 5!
This book serves as a great basic blueprint for productivity, raising motivation and decreasing procrastination. It was recommended by a friend and I can see why, i have found it all very useful and easy to listen to.
Solid advice for beating procrastination and increasing motivation and productivity in your life. I found this a lot easier to follow than most people in this field (many of which feel unrealistic or unrelated to my everyday life). I was relieved to find this book a bit different and just good solid advice that WORKS.
I liked it that the steps and advice areas were laid out in a very simple to follow fashion. Procrastination is pretty horrible and at times even debilitating. I cannot claim to the mains most productive man after listening to this, but i am certainly getting a lot more done in life than I used to....and vitally i am enjoying the process more.
That it felt realistic and suitable and fitting to my own life! I found it very helpful.
No but i liked his voice!
Ummm not laugh or cry - it made me feel relieved that i was finally getting over my procrastination issues!
I noticed that whenever I get a lot of work, I start to procrastinate because of all of the stress that comes along with it. It's so easy to stress out and think about all of the work that needs to get done. I decided to download this book in order to stop me from procrastinating on the things that I really need to get done. It's so easy to say that I will do it later and then nothing gets done. I loved the tips in this book. I loved the advice to take a break and clear my mind. This has really helped me to become more efficient and to get more done. I feel more motivated after reading this book and feel that I will be able to stop procrastinating and get my work done.
I have always had issues with getting stuff done - I am one of those people who always TALKED about doing stuff and complained about stuff I was not happy with (such as having too much clutter in my house) but never ever did anything practical to solve these issues. I was procrastinating. It took me a long time to really accept this and stop making excuses. This book really helped me with basic but very interesting steps to follow to basically get off my butt and do more, both in my personal life and in work life. It is a work in progress thing but I can really say this book helped a LOT and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone and everyone!
The best trait most procrastinators have is high optimism. They are optimistic about their ability to delay a certain task and complete it later in a shorter amount of time. Their high hopes often keep them in this cycle of future procrastination. Procrastinators also have the ability to prioritize. They believe certain things are more urgent and demanding of their time, so they tend to give action to those things instead. In this new book you will be surprised to learn you can "eat your cake and have it too." It is possible to balance the negatives against the positives and still come out on top!
"An outstanding and brilliant guide to manage time"
I just loved the narrator’s speech and listening to that voice was excellent to be able to work on things while getting tips and ideas to stop procrastination helped me a lot. I would recommend this audio book at 10/10 with other audio books. The tips and guidelines shared were very helpful. It’s one of the finest books ever I have ever purchased.
I must say, as an audio book it was very well performed, overall, just loved it very much and encountered new experiences from this incredibly amazing audio book
I listened to this audio book many times. It's not something you can pay attention to in one setting because the writer gives you particular projects to achieve throughout your day. Such projects & tasks include creating lists, adhering to your objectives, creating particular long lasting and temporary goals, and etc. This is a book you want to consume gradually to help make sure you are acting upon each step and really understanding each topic (section).
The exquisite tips and advices i got for those two hours were very helpful, and its impact has been positively impacting my fight towards removing procrastination. Being in a college, managing my time and handling all the tasks is been quite a difficult thing to do. Due to part-time jobs, traveling for fun with friends, family and enjoying myself, I have been regularly procrastinating so many things in my life. Reading and doing tasks have been among the best victims of delaying. When seeking help, one of my buddies recommended this guide.
By listening to this amazing audio book, paying attention to the guide and applying the mentioned ideas, I have been able to reduce delay and avoid putting factors off by avoiding wasting time by eliminating delays and allocating less time to less important stuff and things. This guide is a must buy for anybody who is vulnerable to procrastination and will offer great help. Highly recommended!
"helped me get ideas"
I liked the narrators voice and listening was great to be able to work on things while getting tips and ideas to stop procrastinating helped me a lot. I would rank this an 8/10 with other audio books. The tips were useful.
calm soothing voice to listen to, not stumbling on words (how I do) just easier for a dyslexic like me to listen to things and understand everything and not have to stop and re read a section. I really enjoyed the narrators voice.
sure I listened to it in one sitting while doing house chores. It's short and multitasking is my game. =)
"This is the book I never knew I needed!"
I would rank this one pretty high at the top, actually. The tips were really helpful for a procrastination-aholic like me. I have read quite a few books on productivity and time management, but I loved the sense of fun behind the efficiency of this one.
I guess you could say my favorites were the narrator -- and me! The book broke things down in a way that was easy to understand and digest: realistic little bits, instead of random psycho-babble that leaves the reader to connect the dots. There was also a bit of a humorous edge to the writing, which made facing those hard truths (such as, FINALLY admitting I'm a procrastinator) a lot more palatable.
Erickson simply narrated the book, it wasn't a fiction book with characters. I have to admit, I found his voice nasal and grating at first -- really kind of unpleasant. But as we moved through this book together, I felt like I got to "know" him better, and began enjoying his company during my commute to work -- It wasn't easy to get our relationship to hat point — but we got there in the end!
I was moved by the overall concept. This book made me feel like procrastination is just a fact of life; all humans do it, and it is OK to admit it so that we can try to get things moving in the right direction. The tone of the book wasn't preachy or judgmental, and that made me feel great about reading it.
Because the book is written in a friendly style, and doesn't make you feel like you're being lectured like a naughty child who didn't clean their room (though, admittedly, cleaning is one thing I do procrastinate!), I think it's a no-brainer choice for folks who are new to the self-help genre. Also, the concept of making small and manageable changes will win many readers over!
"Get it done!"
I have went thru many different books in this rough area in my time and I would sincerely put this up there with the best works by people like David Allen. It breaks down a quite complicated issue into easy to manage and easy to follow steps. Narration was great for this one, very engaging voice. I have already listened to this twice and feel like I will return to this many more times to remind myself of the key points.
The best self help book by far that i've heard. Well laid out and inspiring. The narrator captures the tone of the writer perfectly.
Yes I listened to the whole thing start to finish as it was so engaging but it's also laid out in such a way that you can leap back and forth into sections. Great for a quiet afternoon or the drive to work.
It was broken up into nice digestible parts that were full of great ideas and lessons on how to overcome procrastination. I was guilty of so many of the points that the book talked about but it wasn't till I heard them so clearly explained that I was able to face up to them.
"I highly recommend this Audiobook"
I noticed that whenever I get a lot of work, I start to procrastinate because of all of the stress that comes along with it. It's so easy to stress out and think about all of the work that needs to get done. I decided to download this book in order to stop me from procrastinating on the things that I really need to get done. It's so easy to say that I will do it later and then nothing gets done.

I feel more motivated after reading this book and feel that I will be able to stop procrastinating and get my work done!
"I was going to write this later ;-)"
Yes, I would listen to the book again. it helps to go over the strategies that helped me reduce the way I procrastinate. Secondly, I like the anecdotal style of the narration. Lastly, the length of the book is ideal for a quick read during down time.
I learnt the idea of to-do lists. By making simple daily routines at night, I am more organized in the morning and find that I have less of a hassle deciding exactly what I want to achieve daily. I also stopped overthinking lists which apparently is another form of procrastination! Who knew! I like the fact that it was a very practical book. It used real examples to pass the lessons across. For example, when the author talked about limited choices, he gave an example that was very easy to relate with. Procrastination sometimes is viewed as an issue that only affects work life but the example of not going out with friends because one could procrastinate when deciding who to see drove home the point to me. That was because it was something I did a lot without realizing I was procrastinating! Now when I go to a new restaurant and I find the menu imposing, I either ask the waiter to surprise me or I just pick something I want, say steak and limit my choice to a steak dish. It sounds very simple but you can’t imagine how much time I’m saving by making the simple decisions faster.
I would recommend this book to my friends, in fact I already have sent it to my neighbour who never gets anything done in time for our weekly book club. It’s a book that touches on the psychology behind procrastination. It lets the listeners understand the reasons why people push things further in time and sometimes end up not doing them. Most importantly, the book proffered diverse solutions that would help even the most unrepentant procrastinator reconsider his ways. There were so many tips and strategies for overcoming this bad habit that I found something that worked for me. Just like the book prescribed, I finally took a good long look at myself and understand why I usually put things off till later. It usually was because I assumed I had more time to do it later and then ended up doing other mundane things. Last minute rushing became the norm for me and this caused me to hand in hastily put together reports at work. If I wasn’t late to an event, I was just in the nick of time. By valuing my time more and prioritizing my tasks to the earlier part of the day which I decided was my most productive and active time of the day, I have been able to achieve more tasks than I used to in the past. I can say this book has improved my personal and work life.
"An little hidden gem! Really useful!"
Fantastic book - I was a little dubious at the start, seeing as how cheap it is, but this is highly enjoyable and has helped me a heap with my procrastination problems. It was pretty short to listen to which was actually a positive thing as it didn’t contain the usual chaff and nonsense you find in these books.
Excellent and clear to see why it has so many great reviews!
"Fantastic book, helped me so much!"
How useful it was. I have read a LOT of books in this genre and found so many of them to be full of nonsense and a chore to get through. This was to the point and gave me advice I could ACTUALLY apply and not just a lot of nonsense.
First time but great narration.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. For the extremely cheap price, I was shocked how good it was. Awesome content. to the point, great narration.
Helped me loads, covered everything i needed and within days I found myself basically getting more stuff done! Thanks
"Make it happen!"
Yes definitely! The narrator was able to encapsulate the feeling of doing. He really helped me get motivated to get my work done and be more free.
I would compare this to previous books I've read in the past like "Get it done!" and "The art of doing". Both had very similar concepts.
I had to listen to this multiple times and throughout the day. It's not something you can listen to in one setting because the author gives you specific tasks to accomplish throughout your day. Such tasks include making lists, sticking to your goals, making specific long term and short term goals, and etc. This is a book you want to consume slowly in order to make sure you are acting upon each step and really understanding each chapter.
This is a must read book. This was a great book because it helped me to get moving. Getting started is always a tough decision for me so this book was recommended by my friends. I am really thankful to them because it helped me break up my day into smaller, doable activities. I was not overwhelmed by the amount of tasks at hand.
This book especially helped me in my freelancing career and my regular career at work. By listening to the book and applying the principles and actionable steps I was able to get promoted and increase customer satisfaction in my freelancing career. The author shared real life advice so he was sympathetic and cared for the reader.
This book is fit for anybody who is a procrastinator. It will really provide assistance. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It will change your life! I already recommended this book to my friends and family. They can't stop talking about it!
