Ground-breaking new research puts a stop to putting things off

Procrastination affects nearly all of us - a massive 90% of people admitted that putting things off had serious implications to their wealth, health, success and happiness. At best this results in tasks getting delayed, at worst it can stop us from living our lives to the fullest.    

Most people, at some point or another, have:

  • Broken a promise
  • Lost site of a goal
  • Postponed a diet
  • Put off an important appointment
  • Let household bills and chores pile up
  • Been unnecessarily unprepared.

The list goes on.

Help is at hand with the new, groundbreaking book, from the world’s leading procrastination expert Piers Steel. The Procrastination Equation is the must-have read for anyone who wants to put a full stop to putting things off.

Perfect for people with untapped ambition or goals that must be achieved - dithering students, dallying managers, budding entrepreneurs or even time-poor parents -The Procrastination Equation is the definitive guide to why we don’t do what we should.

Based on Piers’ own research – the most scientifically rigorous study ever conducted - this book is hugely entertaining and compelling, designed to motivate and stop procrastination forever.
