The 4 Patterns of Chronic Procrastinators

Folks come to Simpleology looking to solve many problems, but procrastination is perhaps the most common.

It stands to reason, doesn’t it?  Nothing robs us of our full potential as much as lost time.

So, we’re trying a little experiment here.  My team and I just put together a little cartoon book called The 4 Patterns of Chronic Procrastinators.

    Cool – haven’t read a comic for years.

  • ChristianAmador

    Very nice the comic, it helped me to understand some futures of the new simpleology interface that I didn’t get before. I just want to let you know that the link at the end of the comic, is leading to instead of I just added my self to the waiting list. Thanks

    • ChristianAmador Thanks, Christian.  We’ll fix this and re-upload ASAP.

  • PSteveP

    Wow.  What a fertile mind you have my friend.  This comic encapsulates the big idea in a medium that is timeless.  As LesGordon mentioned in the first comment, many of us have not opened a comic in years but the impact is just as fierce as it was when we were readin’ them back in the day – two thumbs up!  Almost wish there was a link to Bob’s book “The Rise of the Author”…;)

    • PSteveP Ha!  The Rise of the Author will be re-released and updated soon :-)

    I have not yet found all the bugs and cameras you most certainly have hidden around my office, but I’m certain they are there. How else could you have known all those intimate details of my proclivity to procrastinate? Have you been talking to my wife? Scheesh! Ya think I don’t know who “Bob” really is? I’m surprised you didn’t include a disclaimer…but don’t worry, I’m not gonna sue…just gonna go quietly and use Simpleology to “Start My Day”!

  • FateEnigma

    I am loving the recent communications through illustration.  It makes the points easier to absorb and adds visual association, which is powerful.

    • @FateEnigma thanks, we figure with a name like “simpleology” it would look rather odd if we released dry technical manuals :-)

  • SueIrwin

    Nice job!!!  It reminded me of some things that I could use better and I look forward to the certification!  Thanks for the “little” reminders of how I can use Simpleology more effectively to get to my goals!

    • @SueIrwin the certification is going to be fantastic.

    Here I was hoping for some black and white FAQs.  I had my sights way to low.  That was the most enjoyable directions I have ever read.

    • @sharethehealth even better stuff on the way!

    The biggest problem with my using simpleology is that I didn’t understand how to use it. This comic instruction book was very easy to understand and made things seem simpler than I thought. It has renewed my faith in the possibilities of using it daily. Thank you for enlightening me! I look forward to learning more.

  • ClaireBradford

    Brilliant! I’d not used my simpleology account for a while, but I’m back on it now, thanks to this.

  • Mom2bjt

    That was really fun and informative! I actually signed up for Simpleology years ago, but I quit using it because I didn’t have time to figure it all out. This comic made most of the basics very easy to understand. I think I’m going to have to give it another try.

    • @Mom2bjt Excellent – let me know if you get stuck.

  • Fred Le Barman

    Thanks once again for showing the example by releasing this so precious document! I’m an unconditional fan for over 3 years now and I can tell you that I’ve never had such a brilliant life ever since I’m using Simpleology everyday!

    • @Fred Le Barman awesome :-)  Wait till you see what’s next.  Our best thing ever.

  • Hi Mark, Thanks for this wonderful and fantastic pictorial analogy of a Procrastinator thoughts and actions. Your intro to Simpeology makes the whole process of “getting out of our rut” looks simple and easy too!  May more people get exposed to this comic of yours so that they change life for the better.
    May I have the permission to pass this comic around?

    • @WilliamSiong Hey William, you bet – as long as it’s left completely intact and unchanged in the form of the original PDF we offer.  Would love to know where you plan to spread the goodness :-)

      • @Mark Joyner  @WilliamSiong  Hi Mark, it can act as a Freebies for my Article, Social Media communications or even as an enticement for Optin. Anything that can get people to download the document actually ;-)

        • @WilliamSiong Cool.  The only other thing we ask is that it’s clear that you’re not officially representing Simpleology … Otherwise, go for it :-)

        • @Mark Joyner  @WilliamSiong  Thanks!  Will perhaps write an article that tickle the “Procrastination” topic and then make them subscribe to get the comic like you did here ;-)

  • I’m a big procrastinator, I’ve gotten a lot better over the years thanks to Simpleology. When I don’t use Simpleoogy I fall back into my bad habits. 
    The comic kept me riveted to keep turning the page to see how “Bob” solves his problems! Great job Mark and I’ll keep at my Simpleology because it’s definitely helped me achieve success thus far! 
    Thanks for putting out a great app…


  • coachingmums

    Absolutely BRILLIANT! Made me laugh out loud! Love the block website feature. I’m off to stop procrastinating now!

  • Cheong

    Thank you Mark Joyner for helping us improve our lives in everyway possible…

  • cool thx

  • Miles Ashworth

    Enjoyed the read especially as 3 days ago I was bogged down in clay while digging a ditch!

  • John Collins

    Thanks for this, it confirms I am in the frame :-)

  • Robert Watkins

    thank you for the download !

  • Thank you, Mark. Much appreciated!

  • RichMotivation

    I loved this comic book journey to slay the Procrastination Dragon. And I love the new Simpleology Elite system as well.

  • Milton hebbert

    Thank you, Mark. Appreciated,

  • Carl Dickens

    Hey Mark. I will admit that this is a never ending battle, at least for me. I really appreciate the book and will review it from time to time AND will share it with my friend and family.

  • scotirish

    You are absolutely right and I haven’t even read the book yet. Just recently I quit a pursuit that had lured me in with all the whistles and shiny objects but I recognized as I teetered on the brink of sending in that $19 that it was too much. I already have too much.

  • Great book! I’ve felt all of the feelings Bob had. I’m excited to use Simpleology to conquer them!

  • I am upset. This comic book clearly shows there is a time shifting spy cam in my office. It caught exactly what happened to me when someone disagreed with my latest Facebook post. How did the camera send the pic back in time to be included in this book? I even wrote a blog post about the experience of being distracted, but was it really just procrastination? You be the judge….

  • inthroughthebackdoor

    Absolutely agree very true!

  • Annemarie Galvin

    This happens on such a recurrent basis, it has become a natural way of daily life.

  • stiven


  • Great little comic and what a delightful way to describe the various functions and benefits of Simpleology. I’m using Elite every day, as well as Juggernaut Academy. Good stuff!
