3. Give Yourself A Hard Deadline, Then Schedule It

The best way to overcome a natural tendency to procrastinate is to create a hard deadline for yourself and then put it on the calendar. Having a scheduled deadline that you commit to will make it easier to get tasks completed. Treat the deadline the same as if your boss created it, and then honor it the same way you would if your boss were waiting for you to complete the task.

4. Be Kind To Yourself

Forgive yourself. If you have the tendency to label yourself a procrastinator, make your first effort one to drop the name calling. For whatever your past experience has been, refocus on doing 5% more toward your goal and give yourself permission to be human at the same time. – Cindy Stack, Whole-Life Leadership
