I put it off until tomorrow.

I read a book when I was in high school, a biography of Andrew Carnegi, the founder of US Steel. Apparently he would suffer with episodes of procrastination. The tool he used was this.<br />
<br />
Most people can handle doing 8 tasks per day. Most people can't do more than 8 tasks per day well.<br />
<br />
every night or early every morning write down the 8 most important tasks at hand. Do them and reward yourself, go for a walk, read a book, check the internet, whatever. <br />
<br />
He built an empire doing 8 tasks a day. I'm sure he would sometimes do 5 and sometimes do 11 tasks but, he had an exceptional day if he did 8 tasks that moved whatever he was working on forward.<br />
<br />
So everyday I set 8 tasks when they are done I reward myself with a cigar or Motor Cycle ride or a walk, I'm getting the tasks done and I feel better about myself which gives me energy for other things.
