Procrastination is a frustrating habit, but it can also disrupt our health and happiness. 'Isn't it about time?' explores and explains why we put things off. The book is full of useful ways to overcome procrastination, and to create a more satisfying, exciting and productive life. Andrea Perry is an experienced psychotherapist who recognises that if people could 'just do it', with or without fear, they would. She describes how we need to develop trust in our abilities to follow our own logic into satisfying action, and how procrastination is a strategy to compensate for significant gaps in this process. She shows how to identify how you block your natural tendency to be effective and creative, and how to build on your strengths and give your tendency to procrastinate something better to do. Accessible and practical, illustrated with humorous and pertinent cartoons, 'Isn't it about time?' provides a rich variety of ideas which help you overcome delay and accomplsih what you need and want to do - today, not tomorrow.
