There are already working methods that just need to be applied to resolve our procrastination and time wasting, by willfully choosing to follow them.
Schedule your time into manageable steps towards your goals.
Break up these steps with breaks like in the Pomodoro technique.
Remember any larger step should be broken down, like the example of a birds paper project broken down like in the book Bird by Bird (or like in the popular phrase how do you eat a elephant? one bite a time. or how do you run a marathon? one step at a time...etc.).
And, finally, remember that in order to get the small steps done you surround yourself with motivation and you make the steps small enough to seem so easy you might as well do them anyway.
