One recent tip I heard was to make sure you defined a goal for the week, then work on it first before anything else. Once it's done, you can feel good knowing you made progress. This is similar to the idea of "paying yourself first" to control spending. This is how I've been making progress on my project where each week I have a list of small chunks of work to do and once I do, everything else is icing (and funny enough, the biggest barrier is taking action so usually once I start I just keep going!)
