Create achievable deadlines. If you've got too many deadlines, either choose a different deadline for some tasks or see if you can delegate them.

If you have a deadline, research your options ahead of time before finalizing that deadline. It may take you longer to complete a project than initially anticipated.
Take your project and break it into smaller steps. Mark each deadline until the final project is done.
Tacking projects in bite-size bits is much more attainable and keeps your momentum going.
Sometimes we set an unmanageable deadline on something that really just needs time and some consistency. For example, trying to lose 20 pounds in a month might not be feasible.
Procrastination is often due to the lack of motivation to complete the project.
Offer yourself a reward for working on the project consistently or for when you finish the project.
Set deadlines that are realistic so that you do not feel pressured to rush. Rushing is not a good way to accomplish any task successfully.
If your deadline is set too far in the future, you might not really find the motivation to work consistently on meeting that deadline.

If you set the same deadlines that worked for others, you could be setting yourself up for failure.
Be confident that you can set your own deadlines that will work for you.
It is important to write down your deadlines on a calendar that you can see on a daily basis. Review your calendar each day to ensure that you do not miss any of them.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
