This is a review on the “How To Stop Procrastinating” E-Book by Jeandie Omandac Galolo.
I received a copy of this e-book as I was interested to, well, stop procrastinating. Okay, so yes, I sometimes find myself not having the drive to do stuff or getting tasks done. So I figured, why not get a copy of this book? Might help me.
This book, by the way, promises to be the “every millennial’s complete, no-nonsense anti-laziness guide.” And while I’m not a millennial, I still feel that its contents apply to all persons of every age group. Because truth is, does nobody ever procrastinate?
What are the contents of the “How To Stop Procrastinating” E-book?
The author, Jeandie, created this passion project to share her own story of procrastination and how she got back on track to accomplishing what was needed. Found here are definitions and types of procrastinators (I fall under one, dang, haha!) and the possible reasons for stalling, presented in a clear and concise manner.
Jeandie also offers useful tactics to get rid of the procrastinator mentality. And it all boils down to knowing your why, building good habits, and setting smart goals.
The book contains productivity hacks as well, to help increase work rate and great output in whatever task one needs to accomplish. I also like that she included plugins and extensions that can prove helpful to combat procrastination.
My opinion on the e-book
To be honest, I’m not big on self-help books; I’ve only read a few. But I realized I need to read more books like this to serve as 1) a wake-up call for me to put my life in order, and 2) a guide whether I’m hitting my personal goals.
“How To Stop Procrastinating” made me realize that I do procrastinate at times. That sometimes, my procrastination is based on the fact that I seldom want to step outside my comfort zone or because I get overwhelmed by not learning to prioritize. The book puts me in the perspective to realign my purpose and goals, as well as to practice balance in life. Not procrastinating does not equate to overworking.
(I found out earlier in life, though, that the Pomodoro Technique unfortunately doesn’t work for me. I guess it varies from person to person.)
That said, the e-book won’t guarantee to totally eradicate procrastination from your life. Of course, that boils down to you. But it provides simple, easy-to-understand explanations and steps on how you can become a more productive person and reach your goals more efficiently.
I urge you to grab a copy of the e-book. Follow @theproductivemillennial on Instagram.
