Do you procrastinate? Don’t worry, it gets the best of us sometimes. Yet, it can become a problem when procrastination starts affecting your personal life in a bad way. For example, putting off paying bills, putting off cleaning your house, or even putting off important phone calls. We all know that procrastination may not be good, but maybe it’s time we actually do something about it? Recently, we got our hands on an interesting book that seems perfect for the occasional to habitual procrastinator – The More You Do The Better You Feel by David Parker.
The More You Do The Better You Feel: What is It?
Tired of constantly procrastinating and not taking care of important things in your life? If so, we think you will love The More You Do The Better You Feel by David Parker. This book focuses on determining if you are a habitual procrastinator, including the signs and effects it has on others in your life, and what you can do to stop the downward spiral procrastination can make of your life, using the author’s own J.O.T. Method. In the end, the method teaches you to stop putting things off and turning yourself into a do-er! With the books friendly, easy-to-follow approach, anyone can learn to stop procrastinating.
The More You Do The Better You Feel: Overall
Really, I think this book is a good read for anyone. At the end of the day, we all procrastinate when it comes to tasks we REALLY don’t want to do. It is especially bad in an age where we really can lose hours to browsing the internet, or interactive video games where we can get lost in a digital world. Who wants to think of cleaning the house or balancing the checkbook when there are so many fun things to do? In this book, the author goes through his own issues with procrastination and how it negatively impacted his life in the first part of the book, and in the second, his method to stop procrastination. Personally, I thought it was fascinating read and cringed a few times when I realized some of the sections really did to apply to me. Overall though, I feel it is a sound method to start trying to take back your life without stopping some of the things you enjoy. My only complaint is it seems like the first part of the book does drag on for a bit. If you are a true procrastinator, you may want to skip around or put off finishing reading the book, which may defeat the purpose of the book itself! Based on our own experience though, I am happy to give The More You Do The Better You Feel an A- rating.

I could really use this book I must get it. I never used to be a procrastinator, but lately I’ve been taking a look around and realize oh oh.

This looks like a good book
I was just thinking this last night because I’m so far behind on my reviews, so I did two small ones last night, but I really felt good… usually I only do one. lol Thanks for sharing. Gonna make a note to that.
I could benefit from this book. I have a lot of problems with putting things off until later. And then later never comes. I need to work on that.

The More You Do The Better You Feel by David Parker sounds like it would be a great read for everyone. I can honestly say that I do not think I am a procrastinator, I tend to do things as soon as possible. I hate that feeling I get like there’s something hanging over me, so in order to avoid that feeling I do not put things off. Thank you for sharing this review.

Jerry Marquardt says
This looks like a very nice book. You do feel a lot better by not procrastinating and getting things done early. I think I am going to enjoy this book. I appreciate your great review.
I will definitely check this out, because the sentiment is so very true. I know the distinct peace and satisfaction I feel when I get up and DO the work that needs to be done, especially when it comes to housekeeping.
Gina N. says
I am a big procrastinator at times! It does frustrate me too, especially when I have a deadline to meet, so being more of a do-er is a must that I need to follow!
Jenn H says
its the law of inertia! getting started is always the hardest part for sure!!!
Kay Moser says
I think I need to read this book. I always have a nagging little list of things that should get done but I get distracted easily.
Patricia Delgado says
*Sigh* I’m such a procrastinator. I have been since a very young child, but on the bright side I work well under the crunch of time with pressure.

My husband puts off reading his mail all the time I need to win this book,but he would put off reading it
I had to laugh after seeing the comment by terry. My husband is the same. I have two baskets of mail that sits unread.I go through and if it looks important I make him open it or get his permission to do it myself.
