From the book:
“The Now Habit has stood the test of time. In this revised edition, I’ve refined and clarified some concepts and exercises, but the essential message of The Now Habit remains the same: Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. When you use the Now Habit strategies to lower your anxiety, fears,  and self-doubts, you can stop using procrastination as an escape and can double your productivity and, often, double your income. When you learn to work efficiently—in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power—you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks”

5.0 out of 5 stars It wasn’t ADD???
By Jsea on August 7, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know that there are already 100+ reviews on here, but what the heck, Neil deserves my complements as well. Prior to reading this book, I was having serious anxiety about work. It was devastating. I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out why I couldn’t “get to it” like all of my other colleagues. I thought I had ADD because I couldn’t finish (or sometimes even start) my projects. I was so scared that I was going to get fired, I ended up going to a psychiatrist.I described my problem of being unable to work, get things done, being distracted etc, and they subsequently prescribed me ADD medication. However, after I took the medication for a month it still didn’t help my problem. (Actually, the medication made me feel really weird , but I digress).

I stumbled upon this book on Amazon, and boy am I glad I did. This book saved my life, I really think so.
After I implemented the tools given in the book, I was suddenly able to get over my phobic response to my work anxiey. I started to become a producer. Knowing what I know now from this book, I would have paid $1000+ for the advice it gave me.

I just love the positive attitude that Neil conveys throughout the book.
Also, I would like to add that I work full-time and recently started university full time as well. And guess what, I’m on my third consecutive semester of getting a 4.0!

Thank you Now Habit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing Book on Procrastination
By O. Merce Brown HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 14, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I give this book six stars, as it is helping me (an overwhelmed workaholic) to overcome a lifelong problem with procrastination. Really. Just from a book, albeit a great book!

The author, Neil Fiore, defines procrastination as “a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.” Procrastination is a strategy to obtain temporary relief from stress, not a character defect or a personal or moral failure (as I’d thought before reading this book).

The book addresses key issues underlying procrastination so that by the time you have finished with the book you are prepared to overcome the habit of procrastination in your life. For example, for me one obstacle I’ve struggled with (but didn’t know it before reading the book) was “the fear that you must deprive yourself of leisure time in order to satisfy some unseen judge”. Guilt-free play was something I never did; I rarely played at all, and if I did I felt guilty. The author shows you how to build guilt-free play into your schedule so that you are paradoxically MORE productive rather than less. Another example is I figured out that I viewed my projects as reflections of my worth as a person; the book gave me self-talk so that I can separate my self-esteem from the work I do. These are just two examples; I’m sure that whatever your issues with procrastination, you’ll find them addressed here, and then be equipped with the tools to overcome them.

Here is a great quote that the author uses from William James: “Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.” If you’re like me and want to end the tyranny of your “To Do” list once and for all, you will absolutely not be disappointed!

Highest recommendation!
