A highly original and bestselling book about overcoming our tendency to procrastinate and give in to our "weaker self".
Why are all good resolutions doomed to failure? You know the problem: whenever you have to make a change, or make an important decision, or want to quit a bad habit, or file your tax return, or go to the gym, a "little saboteur" appears your "weaker self". At first it goes unnoticed as you are sitting at your desk, your sofa or in your car, but then it takes over your resolution and makes it disappear. You end up doing nothing by silently saying to yourself you will come back to it later. (Funny how you never do!) This constant companion (the "pig-dog" character in this book) cannot be defeated or expelled. But it can be conquered, tamed and eventually become a friendly companion! This book has been a huge (cult) success in several different languages. It explains how to turn your worst enemy the one that encourages you to procrastinate into your best friend.
