From today’s Orga­niz­er Lady newsletter:

Make a vow to your­self, anoth­er per­son, or post to mem­bers of an OnLine group for one spe­cif­ic thing you have been pro­cras­ti­nat­ing about. Include a con­se­quence and a time sched­ule. Sam­ple: “I will deal with one pile of papers (des­ig­nate the pile) by such and such a date or I will donate to a cause I hate.” Some­times you can say, “I will not eat a meal until I pay the over­due water bill.”

This is not the only way of attack­ing pro­cras­ti­na­tion but it is a pow­er­ful one. If you have some­thing you real­ly must do, but you haven’t, use this method.

Okay—I will fin­ish my part of the plan­ning for fin­ish­ing at least one of my incom­plete class­es for the semes­ter before the week­end or I will go to church with my parents.
