With all we have to do in a day it’s no wonder we tend to put off the difficult things. When faced with the choice of tackling a new and difficult task or completing a familiar, easier task, most of us choose the later. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s human nature. Yet, if you are going to accomplish big things in your life, then you will need to stop putting off your future.
To overcome this tendency, I recommend that you build the habit of doing the difficult things early in the week and early in the day. Learn to start your week and your day with your most challenging tasks. By doing this, you eliminate the natural inclination to engage with other activities. Tackling the difficult tasks first will create a feeling of confidence and control. It also will produce amazing results.
