If you're looking to beat procrastination, this guest post by Angela DiCarlo has a great tactic: adopt something called The Power hour.
"So what is this Power Hour?
To put it to you straight, this is the one hour that you buckle yourself into your chair and do what needs to get done. You do not let distractions, unrelated calls, negative self-talk, unnecessary breaks, refilling coffee, checking the internet, unproductive time on social media, grabbing supplies from the cabinet in the other room, or anything not directly related to the task."
One of the "tools" the article suggests you use to prevent distraction during this hour is to keep a pen and paper handy to write down anything that pops into your head suring the power hour that could distract you. By writing it down you stop the thought from nagging at you and you can address it when the hour ends. This technique is great for all sorts of situations where you can be easily distracted like telephone conferences, or online meetings
The author suggests answering these 3 questions before you start:
Where in your life are you letting unnecessary “work” slow down your progress?
What actions take up the majority of your working day? Are these the things that will make you money or contribute to your goals?
How would turning one extra “working hour” per day into one “income-producing hour” change your income over the next month? Repeated consistently over the next year, what would that be worth to you?
If a power hour seems too much to commit to why not try a shorter version - the pomodoro technique
