Metapsychology Online Reviews, 3/24/09
“This book succeeds on many levels. It is a useful self-help guide for general readers and the lay public. Mental health professionals…will find innovative ideas and sage advice.”

Louisiana’s Acadiana Lifestyle, April 2010
“Read it. Now.”
Business Today (NC), July 2010
“[A] deeply perceptive book…Show[s] you how to fix this vexing, life-sapping problem.”


Based on their workshops and counseling experience, psychologists Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen offer a probing, sensitive, and at times humorous look at a problem that affects everyone: students and scientists, secretaries and executives, homemakers and salespeople. Procrastination identifies the reasons we put off tasks—fears of failure, success, control, separation, and attachment—and their roots in our childhood and adult experiences. The authors offer a practical, tested program to overcome procrastination by achieving set goals, managing time, enlisting support, and handling stress. Burka and Yuen even provide tips on living and working with the procrastinators you may know.

Wise, effective, and easy to use, this new edition shows why for 25 years Procrastination has been an immediate must-have for anyone who puts things off until tomorrow.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pleasantly surprised on the effectiveness of this book 19. Oktober 2012
Von Perkster - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As a "I was born late, been late ever since" kind of gal I know a thing or two about procrastination. But I never really knew why I procrastinated.

I have read tons of productivity books such as Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (my favorite of all of them), The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, etc. And although most are great at helping you set up a system, they don't really help you get and STAY motivated. Of course, I always get a boost after reading a wonderful get up and go book, I just find myself after a month or even a week losing my way.

That is until I read this book.

I have been so, so, so much more productive the last few months. I was trying to figure out why and it donned on me it was this book! For the first time in my life, I find myself stopping to see why I'm procrastinating on something. It may not sound like a big thing but that one act of figuring out what it is that is preventing me from doing what I need/want to do enables me to actually do it!

Even the fact that I'm actually filling out a review just shows you that I'm not procrastinating any more (I always say I'm going to leave a review for any product I buy on Amazon since its the reviews that help me in purchasing products - you know - give back).

I didn't follow the 2 step program in the back of the book so I can't attest to the efficacy of that program. But considering how impactful just reading the book is, I'm sure its great.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent in-depth analysis of why we procrastinate and what to do about it 28. Januar 2009
Von IWon - Veröffentlicht auf
This book explains the complex psychological mechanics behind what we simply call 'procrastination'. It does it so well that we can see procrastination is just an outward symptom of much more complex subconscious processes that go on in our brains.

Highly recommended to anyone who felt, at any time in their life, that they are not living their life to their potential. If not anything else, this will reduce your guilt (by making you understand why you do what you do)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A dynamic psychological report on procrastination, and what you can do about it 6. April 2009
Von Rolf Dobelli - Veröffentlicht auf
Approaching unwelcome tasks with an "I'll do it tomorrow" mindset is not unusual behavior. The problem is, tomorrow quickly becomes today, so the procrastinator sets a new tomorrow goal. This tomorrow goal eventually becomes a next week goal, then a next month goal, then a next year goal - that is, a never goal. Time runs out for everyone, but it does so far more quickly for procrastinators. If you procrastinate, do you know why? Psychologists Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen outline the reasons and roots of procrastination. More importantly, they show you how to fix your vexing, life-sapping procrastination problem. getAbstract suggests that anyone who procrastinates should buy this book. Now would be fine.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Best book on solving procrastination 18. Oktober 2009
Von Will - Veröffentlicht auf
The authors get into the psychology of procrastination, which no other book I have read does. This helps the reader get to the root of his or her problem. Although a few of the psychological explanations are tenuous at best, most of them are very good and will help many people understand their procrastination. The second part of the book gives actual methods to solve procrastination, which was explained psychologically in Part I. These methods are helpful and realistic (you are not expected to change overnight, and not even within weeks or months). The book was definitely worth the price.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good tips, mostly stuff you know but need to hear anyway 6. September 2012
Von Penfist - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a chronic procrastinator. Procrastination: Why You Do It, What to Do About It Now, is a manual that helps people like me understand why we always put things off till the last minute, and how we can overcome the stress and worry that accompanies such behavior.

Key notes from my reading included:

Your brain is always changing, so you can change procrastination.
Procrastinator are often high achievers who appear to be doing fine (to others), but who are internally riddled with self-doubt.
Not everything you do has to be perfect.
Break up activities into manageable chunks of time as soon as you know your deadlines - plan it out.
I'm a maladaptive perfectionist - I have high standards, which I never meet due to self-criticism.
Stop and take time to acknowledge the small steps along the way to a big goal, instead of worrying about the end product. This will help actually get to the end product/state.

There are hundreds of tips that I found useful - the above are only a few. Bottom line is that I am now better equipped to rationally approach time. I have a few new tools for managing my deadlines, both self-imposed and inflicted by others. I'd definitely buy the book again despite the fact that a few chapters were not useful to me - the ones that were contained numerous nuggets of wisdom and a few moments where I thought - oh, so that's why I do that.

Knowing is half the battle. I had a major term paper due while reading this book, and I started it earlier than I would have otherwise because of my new awareness. I finished a few hours early - maybe not exciting to others - however, I have a long history of asking for extensions because I waited till the last minute.

If you are late for everything and have trouble finishing projects, this book is worth ten bucks, and probably a lot more. Don't put off buying it!
