Do the Most Challenging Tasks First

challenging tasksSome salespeople hate paperwork. Others hate making phone calls. It’s hard to believe, but true. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Unfortunately, procrastination is an easy habit to fall into when you’re facing a task that’s less than desirable or that requires a lot of brain power. They best way to avoid that trap is to handle your most challenging task first every day.

When planning your time (preferably planning tomorrow before day’s end today), work your most difficult tasks in as early in the day as possible. By getting them done early, the weight of knowing they’re on the horizon won’t slow you down while working on the rest of your tasks.

It’s wise to dig deep into those challenges when your energy level is at its peak in the morning. Never save your biggest challenges for the end of the day.
