Without much further ado, here are some simple ways to make sure you complete your laid down task and feel happy for all you have accomplished:
Stop Waiting for the Perfect Time
Just start. It gets easier once you start. Your brain gets ready for an activity once you start. Stop waiting for the perfect time to start. That is procrastination in disguise.

Let the Notifications Wait
It is always advisable to turn off your notifications when you really want to be productive when working. Social media can be a big distraction. You could go from ‘let me just reply to this comment’ to spending minutes and hours. The work will still be undone.
Work in a Particular Interval
Set a space of time with which you intend to do the work and stick, say 12 pm to 1 pm. Make sure the time span is neither too long to make you bored and tired nor too short to make you accomplish far less. This gives you the spirit to continue because you will have it at the back of your mind that you will be done with the work soon.
This should be done when necessary. Rest for a while when tired, and pick up from where you left off. No, you did not waste your time. You just worked smart.
Setting deadlines is an important tool for maximizing your productivity. To help you keep to this, reward yourself with what you want for meeting the deadline.
As weird as it sounds, research has shown that multitasking is counterproductive. You actually spend more time trying to do many things at a time than taking turns to do them.
Find your Productive Hours
Some are night workers while others prefer working in the day. some might choose to do it very early in the morning. Find what works for you and work accordingly.
