Are you a procrastinator?
Do you think a lot about things you want to accomplish, but rarely get them off the ground? Do you have difficulty completing projects because your own standards haven’t been met? Do you sometimes paralyze yourself before starting something, worrying about the “what ifs”? Do you become sulky, irritable, or argumentative when asked to do a task you don’t want to do? Do you have difficulty saying “no” to people’s requests, then feel resentful when it’s time to do them? Do you ignore important assignments, then at the last minute work frantically to get them done?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a problem. Learn how to identify which of the six types of procrastinator you are—the Perfectionist, the Dreamer, the Worrier, the Defier, the Crisis-maker, and the Overdoer—by using quizzes and case studies, and then begin psychologist Linda Sapadin’s clear three-prong program for change.
“This practical book walks us through the proven steps of procrastination recovery and helps the reader feel inspired and empowered to reclaim their energy for life and love.”—Dr. Ellen McGrath, author of When Feeling Bad is Good
