      Very nice.  Organize your life and provide reinforcement for positive behavior.  I like it.  But, it is all about taking that first step that people have trouble with.  How could you surmount that?

      Many times that first step is taken when a person decides they are tired of their situation not changing.  However, a person does not have to wait that long but can foresee  that they are going to get tired of their situation remaining the same.

    Procrastination will lead to stress and perhaps depression. Assuming the individual is likely feeling this way when they identify that procrastination is why they feel this way, reminding themselves that not only will things finally get done, their mental load will reduce and they will feel better emotionally AND physically. (Stress takes a physical toll as well) Procrastinating can also lower ones view of themselves so get going and start feeling a sense of accomplishment and pride instead. If we remind ourselves of this, it can provide the motivation to start makes those plans to get it done.
