From the Back Cover

Praise for The Now Habit at Work

“This book shows you how to get organized, get started, and get more done—faster than ever before.”—Brian Tracy, author, Maximum Achievement

“We live in an age of constant demand and distraction. To succeed at work, we need psychological skills and tools like never before. The Now Habit at Work is a reader-friendly manual filled with practical advice, helpful ideas, and timely tips. Dr. Neil Fiore makes it inviting to learn new strategies, apply them at work, and get results.”—Lucy Jo Palladino, PhD, author, Find Your Focus Zone

“If you don't think you are operating at full efficiency on the job, if you would like to enjoy your work more, if you would like to turn some of that negative chatter dominating your thoughts into positive thoughts, then Neil's The Now Habit at Work is made for you.”—Vic Conant, Chairman of self-improvement publisher Nightingale-Conant

“Never was there a time when you needed an advantage more. You will gain a competitive edge through increased productivity, efficiency, and full-brain power when you apply the Now Habit. Neil Fiore tells you how.”—Patricia Fripp, past president, National Speakers Association

“Neil Fiore draws on effective business and life strategies and offers them to the reader in easily understood principles. The Now Habit at Work is filled with ready-to-put-to-work strategies which the reader can apply in real time. He writes with an unusual ease and clarity that makes the reader say 'of course' as if they are learning something they knew all along but couldn't quite grasp. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to become more productive and tart now.”—Daniel F. Seidman, PhD, Behavioral Medicine Program, Columbia University, author of Smoke-Free in 30 Days

HASH(0xa04ca21c) out of 5 stars Read the original "The Now Habit", forget about this one. Nov. 26 2010
By Hector M. Renteria Hdz - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The original version is great and really helps overcome procrastination; however, this version is not what its title implies: Those same principles applied at work. This book has a whole chapter for Effective Communication techniques and some other chapters which have nothing to actually do with the Now Habit (covered in the original "The now habit"). For other purposes I would have bought other titles.
Please, if you have not read the original book, don't hesitate to buy it if you have problems with procrastination. You actually don't need this book to know how to apply that knowledge to your job.

HASH(0xa04ca468) out of 5 stars Excellent Advice in Few Words Nov. 26 2010
By Book Fanatic - Published on
Format: Hardcover
First I disagree with the reviewer who says you don't need this second book of Fiore's. There is a lot of good information in this volume that isn't in the first and it is organized quite differently. This is truly an excellent little volume packed with loads of practical tips. It is a short book without a lot of useless filler and that makes it even better. I admit I thought it started a little slow but ends with a bang. If you struggle with procrastination, this book is an excellent choice.

HASH(0xa04ca6a8) out of 5 stars Very helpful Sept. 14 2010
By John - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Like "The Now Habit", this book is very helpful and packed with insight about the kind of self talk that leads to defeat and procrastination, and the type of self talk that leads to moving forward, production, and success. I think that the theme of this book could be "start now, instead of getting wrapped up in your head about finishing". This is a slim book, but I feel that the author packs more insight into the book than many authors in books far thicker. I like the way the author includes insights from the military and other researchers. I highly recommend this book for any who - like me - have a problem with procrastination, and who tend to be too "in our heads" while we work.

HASH(0xa04ca84c) out of 5 stars If this doesn't cure you, nothing will... Sept. 8 2010
By Scobie Redfern - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Any reader ever seriously interested in overcoming procrastination will recognize the name Neil Fiore, PhD. THE NOW HABIT, written by him more than twenty years ago, remains the outright #1 work to read on the subject. (One simple, entirely original technique within its pages, The Unschedule, is absolutely life-changing.) And THE NOW HABIT AT WORK continues with Mr. Fiore's ideas on motivating oneself to, well........ START!

I honestly feel the book is a work of self-help brilliance. Chapter Two, "Time and Life Management", really stood out for me. One simple paragraph in particular, a brief three sentences in length, made a light bulb go off over my head that was so bright it probably got reported by the Weather Channel. Any reader who really wraps their mind around the idea it expresses will find life simultaneously simpler and more productive.

The back-cover blurb by author Daniel F. Seidman, PhD, explains the above much better than I can; Neil's writing "makes the reader say 'of course' as if they are learning something they knew all along but couldn't quite grasp." Yes, the "Aha" moments in these pages are many. But don't let the apparent simplicity of THE NOW HABIT AT WORK fool you. Some of its content is actually somewhat abstract, and thus may be foolishly overlooked by those who casually skim self-help books searching for less atypical notions.

No one on the planet understands the nature of procrastination better than Neil Fiore, PhD. And the tools and tips he's gathered since his first book on the subject twenty-two years ago are all useful gems.

Get it. Read it. But only if you want to finally actually do something about not doing something.

HASH(0xa04cac18) out of 5 stars Incredibly valuable - another masterpiece by Dr Fiore Oct. 26 2013
By JIAM - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have "The Now Habit" which I've used successfully. I highly recommend it to anyone but especially those with a procrastination problem.

The book was so good, I decided to get this one even if there was only a few additional details not already covered in "The Now Habit". I was pleasantly surprised to find that while there is a natural overlap and evolution in the content, all of the content is either new, or presents an *actionable* set of tools you can immediately implement.

This is an amazing book: straightforward, simple and action-focused. This is worth many times the actual book value.
