flexiblefine said:I've been reading Neil Fiore's "The Now Habit" to help me work against my procrastination, and I agree with Fiore that procrastination is not a problem in itself, but a reponse to other things, like fear and anxiety about tasks or performance. Working to relieve those fears and anxieties is an effective way to overcome procrastination.
This is a great topic. I'm glad to have found more information on procrastination. I can see how it is a response to other areas that pose difficulties in getting things done. The "Getting Things Done" time management system has helped me some, but I can see where I've slipped in not keeping a list of projects and the next actions, but resorting to a task list which can be seen as overwhelming which I avoid overwhelming.
What steps has anyone here taken to help with their procrastination?
flexiblefine, I will look into your forum as well. There is another book that I need to read first... so I will resist the urge to buy another one before I finish this one.
