Reading Beyond Procrastination has completely changed my view of procrastination from “problem to possibility”. The day after I read the first few chapters of Beyond Procrastination, I began to feel more productive and less stuck, more confident and less ashamed, more pro-active and less re-active – and I got stuff done!
What my clients would specifically like about the book:
· Practical exercises, worksheets, “tricks” and checklists describing specific suggestions and strategies for addressing different types of procrastination
· Useful real-life examples I could easily relate to include the author’s own struggles
· A holistic approach to the problem of procrastination including somatic, spiritual and societal-cultural aspects and perspectives
· A playful, humorous and “small-steps” approach to the problem making dealing with procrastination feel doable
· Emphasis on the fact that all approaches to deal with procrastination are highly individualized and that there is no “one-fits-all-approach”
· Clear and easy-to-follow structure describing reasons for procrastination and ways of dealing with it.
