Whenever I’m procrastinating, it tends to be centered around planning and thinking about everything involved in the upcoming process. That generally leads to believing that I’ll have more time tomorrow to accomplish such a task.

But, if I just focus on starting the process it helps overcome the want to put it off until later. I always make it something simple. For example, if I need to put up a new fan in the house, I’ll tell myself to just get the box into the room and read the instructions.

This usually leads to me pulling everything out and beginning work, since I’ve already started. Before I know it, the fan is up and going and the feeling of accomplishment is there.
