it s bad, I ll say so, regardless of how I received the book.I m sure the release for The End of Procrastination by Petr Ludwig was timed for the New Year It is the time when people buy gym clothes and occasionally a membership and declare diets fated to last maybe days I ve had the book on my iPad for months No, I didn t procrastinate I prefer to read books closer to their release date.You ve probably read a bajillion books helping you be productive There are also studies showing that procrastination can be helpful in some cases Instead of a general review of this self help book, I will talk about the tips I gained from reading The End of Procrastination Because reading and reviewing so many books gets boring for me.Confirmation BiasI m sure the words confirmation bias appear nowhere in the 272 pages, but, for me, it featured heavily It s reassuring that many of the organization tools I use are also what Petr recommends They re not identical, but do the same thing to achieve the same goal.Start with Low GoalsI think we all need reminders here How many of you set audacious New Year s resolutions Run a marathon Lose 20kgs Then fail and give up a few weeks later Petr suggests setting the bar low and gradually working your way up Walk a 5km race, then run one, before moving to a 10km.Build Yourself a Business PlanPetr doesn t call it a business plan rather a personal vision , but it essentially is And put it in writing I do SWOT analyses for clients all the time, but I ve never done one for me What are my motivating activities I think I know them but I ve never sat down for an hour to focus on these things Great advice.Make it VisualI love the templates Petr has created to help control procrastination These are all pen and paper style reflections which work for some, but I can never do it for my To Do list organized into today and do later tasks to make it achievable I have daily recurring tasks, so I tried manual and use ToDoist instead It automates sequences He also recommends a habit list, which I also have as a recurring task Yes, I will hit my red exercise ring on my Apple Watch each day I will write in the gratitude section of my Best Self Journal each morning.Hamster Analogies are a Little WeirdPetr tells the story of a hamster trapped in a box with a clear cover The hamster quickly realizes it can t jump out and gives up, even after the cover is removed It s in a discussion of learned helplessness which I get but would like to think humans are curious than a hamster and observe differences around them, thus not accepting their fate Or maybe I needed a human study example to accept the example A side aspect of this which I liked and Petr used to introduce the hamster is negativity being contagious It s why cable television is a success because by filtering the news you believe the world is only bad.The referencing behind the tips could be improved I know Petr s not going for an academic audience so he s trying to keep the flow going, but it didn t work for me I ll never check footnotes at the end of the book or chapter, so giving detail of who did the study and when will attribute it better and look authentic.But apart from that The End of Procrastination is a very useful book, either to aid your New Year s resolution or just because productivity tips are always welcome flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 25, 2018 Kat rated

revisiting key sections and notation That is just how my brain works I am going to generously give it a 4 star rating, because I am accepting the fact that my lack of success and interest is probably
