First of all, usually there's a reason you're procrastinating (obvious or not). Maybe finding out the reason for your procrastination helps to stop it? Secondly, I had the same problem and found that for me it helped to: 1. find a nicer place to work (only works if you're a student and can work wherever you want I guess), and if possible move around from place to place. If you don't do actual work at home, you probably have more energy and enjoyment doing projects at home, b/c it doesn't remind you of work. 2. Chop up the day into big chunks (again, if possible in your situation). I find that I work best if I go to the university at 9, work till 2, go home and take a 2 or 3 hour break, then go to the public library to work till 8. After that I go home and do whatever I want. I get a lot more done this way than sitting at the university all day, of which half I'm procrastinating, and then feel like I have to work at night too. 3. Try to set smaller goals that are easier to finish, and do not seem daunting. 4. Just start! :) Honestly, the beginning is always the hardest, while if you just pick up the project you're working on you'll be reminded of how much you enjoy it. I hope this helps at all... good luck!

hmm, good answer. I think the reason I procrastinate is that I dont want to get off of what I am currently doing. I might try to follow this advice. selected as best answer.
