It depends on how much you are going to enjoy the task or how much you are enjoying the reward. The more value you get in the task the faster you do it.

Prioritize your task and always start with the hardest and most time consuming ones. If you start the easiest task first, when you complete the easy task you give yourself a false belief of not procrastinating and this way you may delay the hard task.

Work for specific amount of time, so that you know where to start and how long to go for. Give reward for your work. Example- after 2 hours of work to give yourself a 15 minutes break to watch you-tube video.

Surround yourself with positive productive people and successful people, you will get motivated to do the task faster.
