Rachanaa Jain opens our eyes to the reality of procrastination and its detrimental effects on all facets of our lives in her book, Awake Your Dreams: Stop Procrastinating! Start Achieving! This self-help guide starts with a straightforward definition of what procrastination is, what type of procrastinators we are, and the emotional and physical baggage that bogs us down and prevents constructive use of our time and energy. This is followed by the introduction of Rachanaa Jain's six-step Dreams System, which then further trickles down into eleven methods. Simple, concise, easy to follow and understand diagrams, charts, checklists, and sample letters to ourselves throughout tie the concept and the application of her system together seamlessly.
I found Rachanaa Jain's approach in Awake Your Dreams: Stop Procrastinating! Start Achieving! maintained the delicate balance of candid personal identification and gentle guidance required in a book designed to help a reader better themselves. I admit that I ticked more boxes than I had hoped to on the procrastination test, but found the genial counsel which followed not only made sense, but would be easy to apply and quick to implement. There were some parts that felt a little elementary, but they are not hard to forgive in the context of making the Dreams System approachable and as uncomplicated as a procrastinator might require. Overall, I think Rachanaa Jain's Awake Your Dreams: Stop Procrastinating! Start Achieving! is a good addition to round out anyone's self-help library, and a valuable tool for self examination and discovery.
