There isn't an easy way, and there is only one way. You just do that shit, and that's it.

Recently (almost a month now) I implemented a ToDo list in my life. Every evening I create a ToDo list for the next day, and I try to complete it the next day no matter how bad my mood is.

So way does it work for me? I create this list day before, and that means that I'm creating it without all those "I'm too lazy to do this shit now" emotions because whatever I write to this list I don't need to do it know. I will need to do it the next day.

The other thing is that I start my day with simple tasks like "make breakfast", "take a shower", "eat breakfast", etc. At first, it seems quite silly to write this as items in your ToDo list, but this starts you going, and eventually you get hooked up to complete even more things.

Also then I'm creating my list, each task in it is no larger than 30 min task. If it is larger, divide it into smaller tasks. It's a lot easier to complete a small task than a large one.

I'm currently reading "the power of habit" by Charles Duhigg, and the way I try to fight procrastination is to break bad habbits. Like every time I would eat I would watch a show on Netflix, now that I realize that it's a habit, I switched it to browsing the forum, or reading.

Some people make money from procastinating, it's called becoming an IG chick. Hire one, get her to do shoutouts. There, one idea that can involve your procastination and help another procastinate.

I think getting rid of procrastination will also help me in things I do in real life, It's not all about money man.
