The message, tone and style won't be for everyone, but it works for those of us who need a heart-centered approach. Start reading, notice what resonates, and when a possible option occurs to you, just try it. That's how I have ended up with a system of planning documents that enabled me to make a full stir-fry dinner in the evening in the middle of a work week.
I'm generally too exhausted to cook at night during the week, to the point that food spoils in the fridge because my good intentions to eat healthy just aren't enough. But an affirmation came to me while reading: "When I am crystal clear on the very next step, I can do anything." So I wrote everything down, followed the plan to the letter, and it worked. Doesn't sound like much, but trust me, this is revolutionary in my little corner of the world. The stir-fry was a successful test case, and now I'm working on other plans and things are starting to shift.
I've read a lot of books on procrastination. This one is different.
At first I hesitated to read the reviews, because "The Now Habit" just sounded so gimmicky to me. I shudder to think that I would have missed out on finally changing something so close to my core that I never realized it was the root of so much anxiety and lower quality of life.
After reading reviews, I was well... desperate to buy this book. But being cheap and using the super saver option, I was told it would take 8-10 days to get here. So I immediately looked it up at the library, and they had a copy! So I raced down to the city library and signed it out. I was alarmed at the publish date... in the late 80's! Uggg, I had found the previous version. Weighing the investment of time (in reading a version of a self-help book 23 years old), I figured I should probably just read the older version and compare it to the newer version one it arrived.
I was absolutely stunned that this book is perfectly timeless. Reading this previous version just enhanced how potent and accurate the concepts are in this book. I found myself thinking... I could have had a completely different life if I'd found this book all those years ago.
When the new version arrived, I actually couldn't find any difference. There were probably some edits in there somewhere, but even the names and references in some of the charting tools were the same. So I (and you) would do perfectly as well finding that older version at the library. Again, I know I'm probably being annoying at this point - find ANY copy of this book!
The Now Habit does focuses on the root - it deals with the REASONS we procrastinate. It approaches procrastination for what it is - a symptom of a past experience, an irrational fear, or a variety of other reasons. Finally I've found a book that fixes the real problem. The bad habits just melt away afterwards.
I wish I could attach an emotion to my review, to explain how life changing this book was for me. I am a person who deals with concepts and practical wisdom. Dealing with symptoms or gimmicks will never work on me. I need to know what's at the root so that I can change my frame of mind from the ground up.
I am so much happier now and enjoy my time. There's so much less anxiety in my life now - I've pretty much done all that I was procrastinating. I've never felt this way before, and I'm 40.
If you still aren't convinced to buy, at least check the library. Borrow it, buy it, steal it... get this book!
I'm not big into eastern philosophy, but there is something about this book that helps you become more honest with yourself, face your problems, think more clearly, and perhaps even establish a better connection with your true self (if that makes any sense!). The book focuses on getting the work done, but in the process real personal growth happens.
