I can't remember if it was Merlin Mann or someone else that I heard this from, but I've found it true for me...

Often I procrastinate on the big projects because I haven't stopped to plan out what the Next Action is. As long as I see something big and vague like "Adopt a Dog" or "Create my personal Website", that feels big and future. But if I see "Check on apartment regulations about dog breeds" or "Ask Tim what service he uses for his blog", these are things I could do in just a few minutes.

Not that the WHOLE project needs to be completely listed out in advance, but if I make sure there's always a couple bite-sized actions waiting there that will move me towards my goal, it's a lot less likely to not get done.
