How to break the habit:
1.    Take Action! Do one thing that will move the project forward no matter how small. When you do that, you'll feel good about that small achievement and be motivated to do more.
2.    Look at the project as a whole, then chunk it down into smaller pieces and plan each with your calendar. Commit to yourself you'll do each part at the time it's scheduled.  
3.    Grab a buddy - Enlist the help of a friend or colleague to keep you on track and cheer you on.
4.    Download the The Procraster App.
