Procrastinate Now!

Procrastinators are generally considered to be lazy individuals, even by themselves. They often have low self-esteem, beating themselves up about their lack of productivity, however they are usually the busiest people that you can meet. They are always busy doing something - just not whatever it is that they are expected to do.

This book describes ways in which your procrastination problem can be re-evaluated, understood, and used productively, or, when you find the time, eliminated through the use of various strategies.
