How the J.O.T. Method in The More You Do The Better You Feel Saved Me

Sigh... Time for a truth bomb, a confession, the not-so-big reveal. My name is Niecy and I am a procrastinator. Deep sigh... *shrug* For a very long time, I was never really quite certain as to the reason for my procrastination. I have come to understand that I am also a classic perfectionist. In my ideal world I would have created the perfect combination of events that render peace on Earth and a space for me to accomplish all of my goals. A girl can dream or take matters into her own hands, with the guidance of an organizational expert.

How the J.O.T. Method in The More You Do The Better You Feel Saved Me

The More You Do, The Better You Feel How to Overcome Procrastination and Live a Happier Life the recent release from author David Parker, proved to be more than just a redefining read, this was my introduction to the J.O.T. Method. Working from home, while simultaneously homeschooling my four year-old son is multitasking to the highest level, and chaotic by its very nature. Even as I continually attempt this feat on a daily basis, the voice I hear in the back of my mind is, "jack of all trades, master of none."

What exactly is the J.O.T. Method? This is a method in which you train yourself to focus on the accomplishment of Just One Task. A major part of succeeding in overcoming procrastination is letting go of my need for perfection. In reading The More You Do the Better You Feel, I found that the J.O.T. method to be useful in addressing my procrastination issues for two reasons, it addresses one of my strengths- list making and of course, one of my weaknesses- procrastinating. I recommend The More You Do, The Better You Feel How to Overcome Procrastination and Live a Happier Life for motivation to put productivity into practice and procrastination out to pasture.

About the Author

David Parker suffered for years with depression and anxiety. During a particularly low point he recalled a friend's advice and started keeping a feeling's diary. As time passed, he saw a connection between the tasks that he avoided facing and his poor feelings and low self-esteem. Armed with this insight, David taught himself to face his tasks and the overwhelming feelings they brought by learning to focus on Just One Task, which he incorporated into "The J.O.T. Method™." David Parker has lived in London, San Francisco, and Brooklyn, New York.

This book was previously published as- How Many Procrastinators Does It Take to Change a Light Bulb: Take Control of Your Life and Defeat Immobilizing Depression! Unfortunately, some consumers found that title to be a bit too lighthearted and they questioned whether the book was serious. Its new title, The More You Do The Better You Feel: How to Overcome Procrastination and Live a Happier Life, better reflects its serious nature.
