Some people may wonder why procrastination advice seems to never work for them and if there is a deeper issue at hand. Well, for 20 percent of the population who are chronic procrastinators, it is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.
Surround yourself with doers: It''s healthy for a chronic procrastinator to surround herself with people who are likely to do things. It''ll be a good influence on those with a tendency to delay tasks.
Just take a small step at a time：For example, if you''re supposed to write an essay, start with a few paragraphs, and if that''s too much for you, resolve to write just one. If that''s still overwhelming, stick to a couple of sentences or even a few words.
Set up a reward system: People like to do things they enjoy doing. Rewarding yourself with something you enjoy after you complete something that you''ve been dreading to do. For example, reward yourself with half an hour of Desperate Housewives after doing laundry.
Public posting: Because procrastinators care so much about how others view them, they are more likely to do tasks when they publicly announce it. Then when you''ve completed it, let everyone know that you''ve done what you set out to do. The "likes" and congratulatory tweets will feel very satisfying.
