I have a serious problem with organization and clutter at work and at home. How can I combat this?

It has been a problem I have had all my life. It is costing me in my relationships at work and perhaps costing me respect at my job. I am the worst procrastinator that I know of and I think it may be related. I have recently started reading some personal development books. Tony Robbins, Og Mandino, Steven Covey. Kenneth Blanchard. Norman vincent Peale. I am just starting to crack the spines on them. They are insightful, and I won't say that they aren't doing for what they are intended, but I cannot help but think there are other people out there with the same problem who have received help and conquered this affliction, both the procrastination and the disorganization and clutter in my workspace and home. I think that if I can conquer the procrastination, the rest will follow suit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
