I'm a terrible procrastinator, but I just keep trying to imagine how great things will be when I finally get finished and how much it will change mine and DSs life. That's the only thing that keeps me going back to it. Good luck.
Pretty much this. I remind myself it isn't just me that will benefit from my study, that helps keep me going.
Also, I keep to a fairly strict routine. All assignments are given a specific amount of time to get done and I just knuckle down and do it. It helps to have someone on your back a bit too- my husband is great at telling me to get back to work and off facebook.
And Facebook. If you can find a group that is doing your subject they can be invaluable at keeping you on course and to bounce ideas off of. I love my groups- there is always someone to answer a question that isn't really suitable for moodle or the lecturer.
That said, sometimes you will just think "screw it" and not even look at your books for a week. Which is o.k every now and again.
