Today’s Highly-Effective Productivity Hack: Do the hard stuff first
When younger, I learned from sad experience that when mom serves you Brussels sprouts, you better eat them. The secret is to eat them first! Once they’re gone, you can enjoy the rest of the meal.
Every now and then you’re going to have tasks on your task list that are completely undesirable. They have to get done, so get them out of the way first. If you put them off they’ll continue to be on your mind, dragging down your overall productivity.
Do them first, and you’ll find the rest of your day to be more pleasant and productive!
