To begin, what do you say to yourself about those particular NAs when you see them on your list?
1. Not important
2. Takes too much time
3. Don't know where to start
4. Don't feel like doing this today
5. Don't have the tools
6. Can't do this until . . .
7. Or any other "negative" of your choosing
There isn't one solution. There are many, depending on your reason for procrastinating. Tell us your reason(s), and maybe we can provide some solutions.
I just posted a reply to your other topic (http://www.davidco.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1749). One of the advantages for me of the system I describe is that it helps to impose an urgency on tasks for people like us who work within an unstructured week. Procrastination is still possible but not so prevalent, I find.
That is very true. So many times, I find the NA I'm procrastinating on are the ones that I have some negative feeling about and therefore skip over no matter what my discretionary time and energy level is.
My personal example is phone calls. I hate making phone calls. I find that having "Call so and so" on my NA list almost never results in the call being made until crisis time. However, having the less threatening "Get so and so's number" on my NA list usually helps me get it done. Since I don't find looking up the number stressful, I start the ball rolling by pulling up the number and then I end up making the call right after because I have forward momentum on the project for which the phone call is needed.
