Step 1: Recognize that you're Procrastinating

Three simple steps to have a well procastination:

Step 1: Recognize that you're Procrastinating
If you're honest with yourself, you probably know when you're procrastinating.

Step 2: Work out WHY You're Procrastinating
You find the task unpleasant; or
You find the task overwhelming

Step 3: Get over it!
Make up your own rewards. For example, promise yourself a piece of tasty flapjack at lunchtime if you've completed a certain task.

And a paragraph with which 'The Bible of the Procrastinator' should begin:

Procrastinators work as many hours in the day as other people (and often work longer hours) but they invest their time in the wrong tasks. Sometimes this is simply because they don't understand the difference between urgent tasks and important tasks, and jump straight into getting on with urgent tasks that aren't actually important.



(via Microsiervos (spanish) - Each day more, I think that Microsiervos is a kind of synonymus with procrastination)
