An idea I heard on IRC is to use the 5 minute rule.

Start doing something for 5 minutes. Anything productive. Only five minutes. It's not that long, is it? Now, if you still don't feel like doing it, you're tired; take a break. If you're lucky, you will start feeling like doing it and continue!

The point is to get immersed in what you're doing. Small steps can also help - do many small things, not few large things.
