Just Got The Procrastination Cure Book

The Procrastination Cure by Jeffery Combs (image from Amazon)I just received the book “The Procrastination Cure” by Jeffery Combs. I was contacted by the folks over at Career Press, and they asked if I’d have a look at this new book, and since the topic of procrastination is something I’m sure my readers are well aware of, I decided to have a look. Also, the long-time career coach in me can’t resist this topic or this publisher!

Anyway, this is just a VERY quick post to let you know that I have received the book, and have just begun to read it.

Right at the get-go, in the first chapter, “An Overview of Procrastination,” something instantly caught my eye. Jeffery talks about something called the “electronic income reducer” – aka, television (you weren’t really surprised, were you?)

That short passage about the things that tend to encourage procrastination – or, should I really say, encourage putting off ACTIVITY that furthers our lives – made me think of a few other things in that category. Although Jeffery Combs doesn’t mention it directly in his “Overview…” I would add the following to his list of “income reducers.”

=> Liquid Income Reducers (drinking too much)
=> Emotional Income Reducers (worrying or incorrect thinking that paralyzes the ability to take action)
=>Physical Income Reducers (“getting ready to get ready” – sharpening pencils, tidying up the desk, cleaning the house on a sudden urge rather than take action…)

Of course this is very simplistic, but I wanted to mention it since reading the “Overview of Procrastination” jarred my mind on it.

And, I thought about writing about this “at some point…” but then I realized I was, in fact, procrastinating. Why not seize the day today?

And so I did… (*****UPDATE!!!!!!****** SEE BELOW!!!!!)

Until next time… 🙂 HAPPY NEW YEAR!
