Work Smarter, Not Harder
In order for personal development to begin, you need to embrace your work that you do and try to align everything. Write things down, specify things into three areas.
Things that you like doing and you are good at.
Things that you must do, but feel no affection doing them at all.
Things that you absolutely hate, but you must do.
How it works in practice:
Specifying work that brings you positive emotion you can structure your day or week around it.
Start the day with hardest task that you have, finish at least one before swiching to another. Afterwards give yourself a more relaxing task to work on.
By doing this not only you will feel as you achieved your goal, but you will have such an easy time now in comparison to morning that it is no biggie to tolerate it.
Mark Twain once said, “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”
Imagine starting on the day when, after you spent a couple of hours on your nightmare task that you solved already rest of the day will be peace of cake. That is an amazing feeling. More on this agenda: buffer.com
