If a task can be done in less than two minutes, do it right now.
I find myself consciously procrastinating more than I would like. I’ll read an email, a GitHub issue or pull request and think “I can come back to this later. I’d rather just code”. Over time the items on my mental to-do list start to build up until I have a decreasing hope of ever getting them complete.
