From the Author:

Dear Prospective Reader,

I'm a recovering procrastinator. Simple as that. Back in grad school I put off studying for the comprehensive exams by spending hours cleaning my leather tennis shoes with a toothbrush. I never used to stick with a fitness regimen long enough to work up a sweat, much less get my money's worth from a gym membership. I never vacuumed until unexpected guests called to say they were in the neighborhood. You get the picture.

So, how did I become a recovering procrastinator -- dare I say an ex-procrastinator? It happened when I learned that there are great rewards to be found in making advance plans, meeting deadlines, living up to commitments, and working diligently toward goals -- and sometimes very unpleasant consequences for not doing so! Plus, I like the way getting things done gives me peace of mind.

Now I'm known among friends and family as the smarmy one who gets her Christmas shopping done by October, sends thank-you notes the day gifts arrive, and never misses a work-related deadline (wellalmost never). You, too, can be the person everyone loves to hate (but secretly envies). The techniques I recommend in The Complete Idiot's Guide to Overcoming Procrastination have worked not only for me but also for the many clients and seminar participants I've helped as a career counselor and organizational consultant. My aim is for you to find in this book the keys to becoming unstuck and accomplishing anything you desire.
