Pressestimmen

"It is rare to find a book that translates academically sound research into wise and helpful advice."
Jeffrey P. Prince, University of California, Berkley

"THE NOW HABIT is the definitive bible for releasing anyone's procrastinating past and becoming a 'producer.' This book is my go-to recommendation to my clients (and myself!) for beating procrastinatiomn and the guilt that comes with it."
Lisa Rothstein, The DaVinci Dilemma

"I recommend THE NOW HABIT to my coaching clients and friends and family members because it provides clear, practical, effective advice for gettingthings done without beating yourself up."
Liisa Kyle, Ph.D, co-author of Happiness Awaits You

"If procrastination is a major problem in your life – or even a minor problem – this book is well worth a reading. The techniques in this book are mostly psychological, but that does not mean they’re not incredibly powerful if used appropriately. Plus, the techniques here dovetail well with many other personal development philosophies, so you don’t have to toss out what you already know and what already works for you in order to adopt THE NOW HABIT"
The SImple Dollar

"’I've found THE NOW HABIT by Neil Fiore, Ph.D. to be a phenomenal resource for many clients who struggle with procrastination. Fiore helps you figure out why you are procrastinating and offers concrete exercises and strategies to overcome the most common blocks to getting started. This is a fantastic book."
Carrie Spaulding, The Thirty-something Coach

8 von 9 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Denkerfürst am 26. Juli 2008
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Der erste Eindruck des Buches täuscht - die etwas altmodische Aufmachung sowie der deplazierte "Ph.D." auf dem Cover lassen einen zunächst glauben, hier käme etwas Altbackenes daher. Der Inhalt zeigt dann das Gegenteil: Der Autor stellt in meinen Augen zeitlos gültige Methoden und Techniken dar, um der Aufschieberitis" (procrastination) entgegenzuwirken.
Während die empfohlenen mentalen Änderungen (Fokus auf dem Start statt auf dem Ende etc.) definitiv wichtig sind, aber noch etwas abstrakt daher kommen, gibt der Autor spätestens mit dem Tool Unschedule" ein pragmatisches Werkzeug an die Hand. Die darin zum Ausdruck kommende Idee, durch die Betonung der Freizeit" (guilt-free play") gegenüber der Arbeit letztere als knappes Gut" erscheinen zu lassen, ist einfach genial und wohl die intelligenteste Umsetzung der oft nur phrasenhaft vorgetragenen Forderung nach Work-Life-Balance".
Vor diesem Hintergrund ist das Buch aus meiner Sicht uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert, vorausgesetzt natürlich, Procrastination" wird persönlich als Problem empfunden.

The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free PlayWarum nicht gleich?!: Sofort Hilfe bei "Aufschieberitis"Awaken Your Strongest SelfThe Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free PlayVorbei mit der Aufschieberei!: Wie Sie die Dinge geregelt kriegen und Ihr Leben zurückgewinnen

Das Buch ist eine echte Schatzkammer. Mir kommt es wie ein Wunder vor, aber es hat bei mir wirklich funktioniert. Das Buch hat mich ermutigt, meine Bachelorarbeit in sehr kurzer Zeit zu schreiben und auch sonst einiges geregelt zu bekommen. Jetzt bin ich stolz und sehr zufrieden. Auch sehr geholfen hat mir "Awaken your strongest self" von Neil Fiore. Ich kann beides nur waemstens empfehlen.
Die CDs/mp.3s vom selben Autor finde ich auch klasse. -Die Dinge geregelt kriegen und dabei Spass am Leben haben... und eigentlich ganz einfach!

Typische amerikanische Hohlschwätzerei ohne Inhalt. Hab mich vom Titel fangen lassen. Macht nicht denselben Fehler! Lasst die ganzen Bücher zu dem Thema liegen und fangt jetzt mit einer kleinen Sachen an, die es zu erledigungen gibt. Das bringt mehr als sich hier wieder ein neues Projekt aufzuhalsen. Wenn es ein Buch gäbe, das Wunder wirkt, dann würde es jeder kennen und niemand würde mehr Sachen aufschieben. Werdet jetzt sofort aktiv! Ende.

Scheduling fun helps you get more work done: weird but it works! 16. Oktober 2007
Von Elizabeth Potts Weinstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play originally was published in 1989, so perhaps everyone besides me has already read this book ... but I found it incredibly helpful in diagnosing my current procrastination problems with finishing my book and getting done some nagging stuff on my to-do list.

Pros:

- Practical tools to diagnose your problems (keeping a procrastination log).
- The "Unschedule" tool to schedule your fun time, to keep you motivated to get your work done.
- Acknowledgment that most of us actually only have 15-20 hours a week for the big projects, once you plan for meetings, email, phone calls, showers, kids, sleeping, and the rest of life.
- Great for self-employed people who have wide open but incredibly busy schedules.

Cons:

- Really, you've heard a fair amount of the stuff in this book (keeping track of your time, setting goals, etc.) but I found it was presented in a way that was helpful to me.
- If you are not a self-motivated person, not sure that scheduling "fun" time will get you motivated to do work; especially if you are not sure what you should be working on.
- The Now Habit contains a bunch of procrastinator stories that frankly, I speed-read through because reading about other procrastinators make me upset, but those stories may be very helpful if you feel alone in your habits.

What I've already used:

- Realized that the reason I was procrastinating on finishing my book (it was 98% done) was avoiding delayed failure. In other words, when I finish my book it will be published and I could fail at selling the book, so if I never finish, I can't fail. Nuts.
- Used the "unschedule" to figure out I only have 15 hours a week for major projects.
- First day I used the "unschedule" I got all my work done by 2:30 PM. I didn't know what to do with all that time -- it was weird and great!

It wasn't ADD??? 7. August 2009
Von Jsea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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!

Life-Changing Book on Procrastination 14. Januar 2008
Von O. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
******
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!

I was looking for practical steps and found psychological insights. 18. April 2007
Von John-Paul Morgante - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While re-reading "Getting Things Done" by David Allen and looking at his website, I came across a recommendation for this book. The tip came from a solid source so I bought the book. I was looking for some practical steps (like those in GTD) but found more psychological insights. That left me a little disappointed.

The book has some solid advice about the reasons for procrastination and how to move forward but it will not provide you with any lists, calendar tips, prioritization methods, or the like. It helps you to work on your thoughts and gets you to say, "I choose" instead of "I have to". It also helps to free you from the guilt of not doing and encourages you to "start".

This is all important stuff because we really do act according to our thoughts so getting those right is the first step. Regardless, it left me a little empty as I was looking for ore implementation tips to help me fine-tune a workflow system.

The bottom-line: If you don't know where to turn and are overwhelmed, this book might just help you break through. If you got things moving in the right direction and need some "black-belt" skills, look elsewhere.

Overcoming procrastination by finding a better reward - marvelous! 26. April 2007
Von Annag Chandler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been a first-class procrastinator for most of my life, for many reasons -- too many tasks, not wanting to do the task that needs doing, feeling that no matter how hard I tried my results would never match my expectations for myself. This book was a breath of fresh air. After so many efforts to "just buckle down and do what needs to be done" [and the guilt that came when I went off daydreaming again], this book gave me insights, an "unschedule", and a mantra of how to move forward.

I have extracted the kernels from the book and made them into a reminder that is constantly on my desk, at work and at home. Now, I tell myself, "I choose to start on one small, imperfect step, knowing that I have plenty of time for play." With that mantra, I can start a task, and frequently just starting takes me close enough to the finish that I do finish the task, as well. I also wrote out my reasons for tackling my work, building on the "pull" method of self-motivation, setting out why I'm doing this work, anyway -- and that reminds me of the positive results that come, not from procrastination, but from digging in and getting started.

Result? I'm working more effectively, leaving the office at least an hour earlier than was my habit three months ago, and taking at least one day off per week. Eureka! Don't procrastinate -- give this book a chance!
