The opposite of procrastination and laziness is when you take care of things right away and with speed.
Think of some things that you have been pushing off taking
care of. Now commit yourself to do at least one of those
things as soon as you can.
After you do this, let this serve as a role model for you to
increase your general level of alacrity.
