No one likes doing those pesky hard tasks, I know it, you know it, it is what it is.
We often procrastinate and push them forward with the hopes that they will be forgotten. That they will disappear into a sea of confusion with other hard or harder tasks.
The problem is they never disappear, or at least the majority of them. But why should we do them now now?
As mentioned yesterday, one of the biggest time wasters is task switching. But will you task switch if you leave it for later?
Unfortunately, yes. Because you know, that hard task will be in the back of your mind. You know that while you are doing the other stuff, this one will creep into your thoughts, just to make sure you don’t forget it.
Unlike some productivity gurus, I am a firm believer that we should do what we don’t like before. Get it out of the way, and then we can properly focus and enjoy the things we like to do.
