Praise

“Don’t be mislead by the concise size (100 pages) of this book. Timothy Pychyl has been helping people change their put-it-off mindsets for twenty years. Each page has been carefully thought out to hold readers’ attention as he tells us how to get about doing what we need to do in order to make our lives more productive and fulfilling. Laced with cartoons to keep readers laughing as they learn, the guidance is wise, down-to-earth, and easy to embrace.”
