Part: 1 The Whats, Whys, and Woes of Procrastination - Pg. 1

1 Part 1. The Whats, Whys, and Woes of Procrastination Whew, you've gotten this far. You've bought, borrowed, or begged for this book. You've vowed to do something about your procrastination problem once and for all. And here you are about to start Chapter 1. Congratulations! But are you already worrying about whether you're going to finish the book and make some real changes in your life? Well, worry no longer! These first five chapters will show you that procrasti- nation is not some mysterious, insidious demon that you can't control. Rather, it is something that you can figure out, psych out, and snuff out. In the first two chapters, you'll see how widespread a problem procrastination is and why it's a habit that needs to be broken. Then, you'll get right down to business in Chapters 3, 4, and 5 and learn why people procrastinate (because to get rid of a problem you have to dig it out at the roots) and why fighting time is a losing battle.
