Set worthwhile goals for yourself, goals that you intensely desire to achieve. All motivation requires ‘‘motive.’’ A major reason for procrastination is that there is no specific goal that the person wants badly enough to get started and then to persist until the job is complete

Program your mind to overcome procrastination by continually visualizing your tasks as completed. Visualize your goals as already achieved. Repeat and affirm the words, ‘‘Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!’’‘Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!’’

Set deadlines for yourself on all important tasks

Create a reward system for yourself.

Program yourself to overcome procrastination by accepting 100 percent responsibility for the completion of the task on schedule. Look only to yourself. Rely only on your own ability
