I started reading this book yesterday and already I feel it has been worthwhile. Dr. Neil Fiore, author of The Now Habit, offers a new definition of procastination: “Procrastination is a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or comopleting any task or decision.”
According to Fiore, “Procrastination is not the cause of our problems with accomplishing tasks; it is an attempt to resolve a variety of underlying issues, including low self-esteem, perfectionism, fear of failure and of success, indecisiveness, an imbalance between work and play, ineffective goal-setting, and negative concepts about work and self. Procrastination is not a character defect but a coping mechanism.”
Fiore offers a totally new way of thinking about an issue that is often at the core of achieving our goals, realizing our full potential and owning our own success.
I hope you will join me in reading this book.
