"Procrastination may feel like the human condition, but it doesn't have to. To get out of your own way and increase your productivity, try these three tactics:
1. Set deadlines. Create a schedule with clear due dates for each task. Remind yourself by using visual cues: Set reminders in your calendar, add items to your to-do list, or put a sticky note on your computer screen.
2. Ask for help. Ask a trusted colleague to review your work. Knowing that she's expecting it can spur you to get started.
3. Change your mind-set. Stop thinking of yourself as a procrastinator. See yourself - and talk about yourself with others - as someone who gets things done."
