But procrastination is not a sign of weakness or moral failing. It’s simply a human problem. In this Book there are four types of procrastinators: - the perfectionist, who has to get things right - the warrior, who must feel fully engaged - the pleaser, who must keep everyone happy - the rebel, who resists doin [...]

    Wish I had this book a little earlier on. A good guide to identifying your barriers, and types of a procrastinator one is. How thinking pattern works, and how to change it. A fast and to the point read. No shaming involved. Would definitely recommend to my younger self.

    I requested this book on NetGalley because I used to be a terrible procrastinator, but since starting university I've managed to overcome that character trait by myself. Still, this was a short book and I thought I'd give it a go in case it offered any pieces of advice that I hadn't previously encountered.Discussing four procrastination types - perfectionist, pleaser, warrior and rebel - Jennifer Shannon gives a rundown of the aspects of each type, including quizzes so that you can discover whic [...]

    Finished this book in one seat! it is really easy to understand and follow along, no jargon, just useful advice for teenagers and adults alike. The book deals with procrastination through the different points of view of four fictional characters: Jordan, Emily, Athena and Tyler. Each one representing a "procrastinator type": The perfectionist, the pleaser, the warrior and the rebel. I think it is really easy to discover your type/s just by reading the book but, in case needed, there are links pr [...]
