This review is from: Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-free Play (Paperback)
I've never reviewed on Amazon before but felt compelled to this time, because if there are people like me out there who are desperate to sort themselves out, they should know this book is a good one! I'm sure there are others but I saw this one mentioned a few times elsewhere and indeed it's really worked for me (I've been a terrible procrastinator my whole life and having gone self-employed I needed some help). All the reasons Fiore gives for it are spot on (fear of failure, perfectionism etc.) and his advice is worth believing as he's (supposedly) coached hundreds of people and students with the problem. I quite wanted it to be more 'here's the plan: 1. do this, 2. do that etc.' but instead he talks lots and you're left to put it together yourself. But I took his suggestion of working no more than 5 hours/day or 20 hours/week and it's been so effective, I find myself sorting out other stuff in the evening like the redecorating. He also suggests working for a minimum of 30 minutes before a break, but I adapted it to a minimum of 40 minutes, and if I feel like I can keep working, much the better as then I might finish my 5 hours earlier that day.

Just to add - 5 hours might not sound like a lot but that's 5 hours of pure work - no internet, no making tea, nothing else. I worked in offices for years and I do more focussed work in 5 hours now than I did in 8 then.
