Procrastination

The School of Life

Overview

We all need to take a break sometimes, but many of us feel guilty whenever we're not being productive. Despite its bad reputation, procrastination is a universal and inevitable human experience that doesn't have to feel like self-betrayal.

The School of Life is a global education company founded by Alain de Botton and Sophie Howarth. The school has produced countless books, videos, classes, and games focused on applicable philosophy for modern life and making self-improvement accessible to everyone.

Procrastination: How to Do It Well is a rulebook for those who may feel stressed by their own inaction. By examining the psychological factors that make us procrastinate and feel so bad about it, The School of Life shows us how to take a day off with grace and use our idle hours to recharge instead of fret over our laziness.
