This is the book that finally got me to stop procrastinating: “Mini Habits” by Stephen Guise (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00HGKNBDK/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr= ). It seems quite simplistic at first read, but asking myself “What is the smallest step that would bring me closer to my goal?” has helped me immensely. If your answer is something you’ll still procrastinate doing, you need to break it down further. For example, if you need to study, “take the book out of the bag” is a good first step, “put it on your desk” is the second, and “open it to the right page” is the third (only try to come up with one step at a time, something small enough it will only take a minute to do, do it, and then decide to stop or think up a next step). Hope this helps!
