The book started by telling a story about how much distraction we get in our day to day work. It goes on explaining about the concept of “The flow of water”. How the water react when you throw a stone at it. It will create a splash and ripple depends on the mass of the stone. No more and no less. And after the ripples are gone, it will go back to its calm state.
The “Solving procrastination puzzle” book also highlight some steps you can use to try to combat procrastination.
- Just get started : an example to this is if you are a college student and have a homework after your math class, don’t wait until just before it is due to try complete the task, but rather start to do or right after the class of that night on the same day where tog had sit in the class. This will ensure that your mind is still fresh with the lesson about that particular math problem.
- Write task and ask sub task: You cannot possibly run before trying to crawl. So if you can’t think of a solution to the problem, try to break it down into much smaller task. As you go along solving each of the smaller task, eventually you will figure out more tasks and this will all points to the direction to solving the bigger problem
