A helpful activity is to seriously look at the ways you procrastinate. Everyone has their own techniques and tricks for avoiding things they don't want to do.
Take a few minutes and list the ways you procrastinate. Tape the list above your computer as a reminder. Or give the list to a friend and ask him/her to tell you when they see you avoiding an assignment or neglecting to study for an exam.
