One of the most difficult things about setting up your own business is constantly finding the motivation to "just getting on with it". This is something that Kirstin ODonovan understands very well.
Like anyone who has ever tried to work for themselves or get their project off the ground, it's not "time management" itself that's the problem, it's overcoming your fear of failure and other psychological barriers (like still trying to please other people) that's difficult.
So, if you're looking for a metaphorical "kick up the butt", this is the book for you. It will not only help you to make some tough decisions and provide some inspiration to get going, but it also has plenty of practical advice you can follow. Following methods and doing exercises sometimes is just what you need to get started. There are plenty of both in this guide.
And if procrastination is your poison, then jump straight to the section dedicated to it - it might just help you beat it.
