Do you tend to put of doing tasks that are boring, complicated, or unpleasant? Does your procrastination leave you anxious? The More You Do, The Better You Feel by David Parker teaches us how procrastination can turn into an unhealthy habit and steps to overcoming it.

Are You A Human Ostrich?

Do you stick your head in the sand at the thought of dealing with a task that seems boring, complicated, or unpleasant? Do you pay your bills late because the last time you balanced your checkbook was more than six months ago? While working on a task do you keep thinking you should be dealing with a different task?

• Is your living space messy and your life unorganized?
• Do you clean up only when family or friends will be visiting-only to let your place fall back into untidiness after they've gone?
• After you've cleaned for visitors, do you tell yourself "it doesn't count!" because you weren't doing it for yourself?
• Have you stopped having visitors over because you're ashamed of your mess?
• Do you worry you'll feel embarrassed if the landlord, a plumber, or a repairperson needed to visit your place?
• Do you constantly compare yourself to people who seem to "have it together?"
• Does your habitual procrastination leave you feeling depressed and anxious?
• Do you know the 25 characteristics and behaviors of the human ostrich?
• Are you concerned that your child or someone you care deeply about is becoming a habitual procrastinator?

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.
