It depends on why we procratinate. There are various reasons, and for me they include: not wanting to do something because it’s a yucky task, being unsure of how to do something, and having too much to do and the resultant brain clutter that can cause.

There are certain things I procrastinate about but I reckon as long as you recognise you are doing it, you’re halfway to beating it. I find guilt can work for me, as in the guilt of knowing that I shouldn’t procrastinate. The other thing is as soon as I procrastinate, *if* I have the discipline to jump into it then and there, I’ve taken action, and it’s much easier to keep going once you start.
