Give yourself rewards on completion of the task like going out for dinner on the completion of project as a reward can motivate you.

2. Indecision: Some people are very poor at making decisions. They even can't make simple decisions like when, how and where to start the task. Such people should allocate should set a specific time for themselves to take a decision like five minutes to set a time for the project, five minutes to draw out the first draft etc.

3. Lack of confidence: Some people delay their task as they think that they will not be able to meet society standards as they have poor self confidence. They do not want to face failure and are afraid of negative feedback and results to their efforts. Such people should concentrate on their abilities and the end results of the project so long as the project is completed successfully. They should remember that their colleagues would appreciate their work and their boss would give them bonuses for simply finishing the project irrespective of the standard.
