This book was very insightful. And very funny at times. But it also sparked a thought of what I am passionate about. I will use these tools to help stop wasting valuable time and achieve my dream. Thanks Dr. Sawi! – Amazon Review
Procrastinators, Social Media and Couch Zombies Arise from your trance!! Help is on the way.
Do you find yourself killing time by doing absolutely nothing? Have you often persuaded yourself to put something off in favor of doing something less productive? Would you like to make better use of your time? Many of us while away the day and can’t even remember what we did. It’s easy to get distracted these days; social media, hundreds of TV channels, blogs, YouTube, the internet, mobile phones, the list of potential diversions is endless. So the question is, what would you be doing if you weren’t wasting your time?
In this book, I Love to Dillydally: Reflections on the Fine Art of Killing Time, we will examine these questions and provide some answers to how you can become more productive, with chapters that cover things like:
- Rediscovering your motivation
- Finding something you are passionate about
- Making the time you have precious
- The ways we waste time
- The reasons why you shouldn’t schedule every minute of your day
- How to avoid common distractions
- Making the most of your commute
- And more…
This book is not designed to be a know-it-all, this-is-how-to succeed, preachy sort of book. It recognizes that we all suffer from low to no motivation, leading to procrastination and seeks to help you understand where all that time goes and how to squeeze all the value out of it before letting it escape. With your copy of I Love to Dillydally you could find new ways to improve your productivity and maybe spend less time watching TV or arguing with people you never met online.
A very humorous and thoughtful reflection on how and why so much of the day disappears without a trace. -Amazon Review
About the Author
Ziad Sawi MD is a Las Vegas physician who loves to spend money, especially on cars and travel. He has on occasion gotten himself into trouble for such spending and “I Love To Spend,” one of his first forays into writing, is both a chronicle of said troubles (which some might call oversharing) and lessons learned from them. Ziad intended Spend to help explain the psychological dynamics behind compulsive spending and help create self-awareness of the problem. Hopefully in a very humorous and enjoyable way, but without making light of problems of impulsive habits. Ziad then uses guided meditation and self-hypnosis to help you gain control of your life again. Hypnosis being another one of Ziad’s areas of interest
Ziad is a board certified anesthesiologist and also a pain management specialist. Shortly after writing Spend, he became so interested in the disease of addiction (and people can be addicted to more than alcohol and drugs) that he gained board certification in addiction medicine as well.
After that and some soul searching and deliberating, Ziad decided to dive into writing head first into writing and is in the process of completing a number of other books with an addiction theme. Look for “I Love to Dilly Dally” (about procrastination and lack of motivation) “I Love to Gorge” (overeating) “I Love to Snort” (about how someone…not autobiographical!!!…can gradually slide into cocaine and substance abuse.)
