Assalamu'alaikum, One of the most effective ways to get yourself into a productive mindset is to take your productivity day by day. Don't worry about tomorrow and how productive you'll be tomorrow, just think of today and what you can do today. For example, let's say you want to finish reciting the Quran at least once during Ramadan. You may take a "Month-view" of this task and say to yourself, "ok, if I recite 1 Juz' a day, I should be able to complete the Quran once during Ramadan". However, we all know what will happen if we strictly stick to this plan: some days we'll manage to recite 1 juz' and many days we might get busy or lazy to recite even that 1 Juz' and thus we end up sliding with this task and never get a chance to complete it. Now imagine you took a "day by day" approach; each day you recite as much Quran as possible as if it's going to be your last day of Ramadan. What will happen here? I'm pretty sure that you'll end up not only finishing the Quran once maybe twice/three times or more inshaAllah! Thinking about your productivity on a day by day basis will help you get a lot more done in 1 day, reduce your procrastination, and enable you to achieve a lot more in the long term.
