Do you struggle to focus on your work? Are you easily distracted? If the answer was yes to those questions, then you have a procrastination problem. 

Procrastination is a common problem that we all face at some point in our working lives. It can be too easy to browse Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube instead of working on something important. You may even invent other trivial tasks to accomplish instead of your more essential but more laborious tasks, just to give the impression you are busy. If it is left unresolved, it can severely affect your ability to get your work done to a high standard for a deadline. In this book, we will explore what procrastination is, how to overcome it, and how to achieve better focus on your work. 

This book is split into the following chapters:

  • What is procrastination?
  • The first steps to overcoming procrastination
  • A Step-by-step process in beating procrastination
  • Refining your work habits
  • Developing your ability to focus
  • Software tools to help
