Finally, I completed the book, “Solving the Procrastination Puzzle”. Well, I procrastinated too much while reading the book and because of that, it took me more than 3 weeks to read the book. The good thing is that every now and then I wrote my learnings from the book on my blog which turned out to be a great asset because now I can revisit it anytime I want and relearn from it.

The book became really technical in the later half which actually led the delay. If the book is interesting it takes no time to read till the end but when it becomes too technical to understand it becomes difficult to follow through. With that said, I really liked the last chapter because it dealt with my problem specifically and showed the how I can overcome it (I would share the detail of my problem and its solution in the next post).
The bottom line is when we give in to feel good, we procrastinate. That’s it. It happens in almost any endeavor of life. When the going gets tough we find an easy way out and that’s what giving in to feel good mean and it leads to procrastination. For most of us, this has become a habit, we are habitual to procrastinate. Realizing this would be the first half of solving the procrastination puzzle and acting upon it to create a new habit of doing things rather than giving in to feel good is the solution that I have found for myself.
