    Set goals and stick to them.

    Turn off your phone or any other device you get distracted on and put it away.

    Yeah... Then don't go and get them to start procrastinating again :rolleyes:

    Set a timer for work and break time. Depending on just how hard I find it to focus or how much I dislike the task, I've used 20 min/5 min, 15 min/5 min, and 7 min/2 min. Set it to repeat, and before you know it you've put in a good few hours of work. Preset longer breaks are optional, but a good idea if you'll be doing this for a long while.

    I find the scheduled breaks remove any guilt I might otherwise feel, because they're just a part of completing the goal I set for myself in following the timer.
