I got this awesome tip from this blog on the original procrastination hack.
What you do is a rotation of time periods, you can do 10 minutes then 2 minutes, the 1st section of time working as hard as you can on your next action of your to do list, then 2 minutes doing anything ~ surfing the web or whatever
And then repeat – each cycle doing some other thing on your to do list.
You can make the times longer, I usually do 15 minutes, and 7 minutes or something like that.
And after a while, you really get into it and both segments are enjoyable ~
