Stop Procrastinating

By Solving Brain Teasers

About the Book

You are a morning person like I am: there is no way you can wake up later in the morning. But suddenly a reminder for the coming day remembers you that important - boring - thing you have to do. The morning comes, and you are so low, so tired, you just want to sleep. Isn’t it funny and irritating at the same time?!

Welcome my friend, you are a procrastinator. But if you are reading this book, well…you are working on it. High five! 

Is this yet another book on how to stop procrastinating? Absolutely yes! 

Does it contain some crazy techniques? No way! It does not. 

If you are a first time reader of mine, I warn you: we are going to have some fun, not just reading some interesting techniques and thoughts on how to stop procrastinating. If you are not: welcome back! 

First thing first, do you really want to stop procrastinating? Or are you procrastinating even the idea of stop doing it? In both cases, this book is right for you. 

If you already read several books on this topic and you are still here, I strongly encourage you to keep going with the read. I urge you to stop procrastinating and use this book as a chance to avoid to put off the things you want to do…again. It is meant to be nice and short. You really can not say: I have no more time left on my schedule.
