We don’t want to do the hard things. We like to do the enjoyable things. If something isn’t enjoyable, then we at least want it to be easy.
Yet, the enjoyable things often aren’t very helpful. And the easy things usually don’t provide a lot of return for our time.
The ability to make yourself do the hard things is a big determiner of how successful you’ll be.
Consider these ideas:
Some tasks are just unpleasant. There are even unpleasant tasks which provide little value but must be done. It’s best to get your unpleasant tasks done as soon as possible.
If the unpleasant task is high value, it deserves to be accomplished first. If the unpleasant task is low-value, just get it out of the way as soon as you can.
If you can reliably do the hard things first, you’ll find that you’re much more successful. You’ll also be happier, because you won’t have to stress about those hard things more than necessary.
