How to Stop Postponing and Live a Fulfilled Life

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Simple, science-based tools to stop procrastination

Even with overflowing inboxes, thousands of unread notifications, and unmet deadlines, most people still can’t manage to take control of their time and stop procrastinating. The End of Procrastination tackles this ubiquitous issue head on, helping you stop putting off work and reclaim your time. Author Petr Ludwig shows that ending procrastination is more than a wise time management strategy—it’s essential to developing a sense of purpose and leading a happier more fulfilled life.

The keys to overcoming procrastination are simple. With eight clear, approachable tools—from quick daily worksheets to shift your perspective to to-do lists that actually help you get things done—The End of Procrastination provides everything you need to change the way you manage your time and live your life.

Based on the latest research, The End of Procrastination synthesizes over one hundred scientific studies to create a program that is based on the way our brains actually work. By understanding exactly why procrastination happens and how our brains respond to motivation and self-discipline, the book provides readers with the knowledge to conquer procrastination on an everyday basis.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 19, 2018 – Ludwig's deceptively simple debut provides marvelous tips for increasing productivity. Explaining that motivation, discipline, and objectivity form a recipe for success in setting and reaching goals, Ludwig demonstrates that there are multiple types of motivation, and the one that most people turn to extrinsic motivation (rewards and punishments) is far from the most effective. Instead, in Ludwig's estimation, intrinsic motivation motivation driven by a meaningful personal vision provides the true key to success. To help readers redirect their efforts toward understanding and then pursuing their true passions, he provides a trove of practical techniques for pushing past procrastination, most notably the "habit-list," a daily accounting of desired actions to build discipline. Ludwig instructs readers to lay out their tasks, give each task a concrete and pleasant name, take breaks to replenish cognitive resources, and make a habit of creating a "to-do today" list. Because many procrastinators are paralyzed by a fear of failure, Ludwig reminds readers that failure is positive, as it puts one's mind in the "learning zone" where one can question previously held assumptions. He also includes a step-by-step guide (here dubbed the "hamster-restart") to follow when one inevitably trips up. In a firm yet empathetic tone, Ludwig provides realistic, achievable steps to overcoming procrastination.
