Learn what causes procrastination and how to overcome it with strategies that are backed by science. This book suggests that the popular term, “weakness of will,” is a misnomer: procrastination is not a matter of having a weak will, procrastination is will in an irrational direction. In order to overcome procrastination, you’ll need to realize that conscious willpower is your weakest faculty. Instead you should foster automaticity by setting up habits that get you started on work with less conscious effort required.
The science suggests that strategies fostering automaticity—via habit and ritual rather than utilizing willpower—will be the most effective at preventing procrastination and increasing productivity. According to the “dual-process theory” of human psychology, the self is like an elephant with a monkey on its back. The elephant goes where it wants and the monkey says, “I meant to do that.” Little did you know, your elephant wants to procrastinate. Tricking the elephant into going where you want will work better than the monkey fruitlessly pulling on the reigns.
This book will show you how to overcome your procrastination and increase your productivity. You will learn how to set up better work habits and stop bad ones. You will get actionable tips on how to create a productive workspace. And you may be able to figure out what it is psychologically that is causing your specific procrastination problem, which will help you overcome it for good and get your life back on track.
