The Procrastinator's Guide to Getting Things Done
By Monica Ramirez Basco
Guilford Press, 2010

Everyone waits till the last minute sometimes. But many procrastinators pay a significant price, from poor job performance to stress, financial problems, and relationship conflicts. Expressly designed for people who want to make changes but would be easily daunted by an elaborate self-help program, this guide is packed with highly practical tips and suggestions.

Author and cognitive-behavioral therapy expert Monica Ramirez Basco peppers the book with easy-to-relate-to examples from "recovering procrastinators"--including herself. Inviting quizzes, exercises, and practical suggestions help you:

* Understand why you procrastinate.
* Start with small changes that lead to big improvements.
* Outsmart your own delaying tactics.
* Counteract self-doubt and perfectionism.
* Build crucial skills for getting things done today.

The February eBook of the Month is provided through the generous support of Guilford Press. Although not yet a part of UCF's collection,The Procrastinator's Guide to Getting Things Done will be provided with free, unlimited access February 1-28, 2010, at NetLibrary in the Articles and Databases listing on the library home page.
