The Now Habit – Neil Fiore

Book review

Sound advice on procrastination

Fiore has been studying procrastination for many years and sees motivation as key. He suggests designing your day around what you really enjoy, leisure, hobbies, exercise and then to build half hour slots around this – to work towards your goals.

Instead of focusing on finishing, the focus is on starting in 30 minute increments then taking a reward, and back to start again. He reccommends taking a 2 minute pre-project focus to get the mind ready to start. Procrastinating uses up valuable energy. It’s a protection of sorts, but it takes energy to procrastinate.

The stories of clients in the book makes one feel he has missed the obvious, that many of them are ADHD, but the advice is relevant and effective. I share several of his techniques with clients in my coaching.
