Break it Down. Take a big task and divide it into smaller sub-tasks. Sub-tasks should be small enough that you won’t procrastinate about them.

Assemble Your Materials. Then there are no excuses not to get started.

Schedule the Sub-Tasks. A date. A start time. An end time.

Commit Publicly. Tell everyone who will listen how you WILL have it done by time X.

Do it. Putting it off? The sub-task was too big. Go back to step one.

Reward Yourself. Small rewards for completing a sub-task. Bigger rewards for a series of sub-tasks. Huge reward for total completion.
