Do The Hardest Thing First And The Rest Will Be Easy


Have you ever noticed that in life we almost always choose the easy road, the path of least resistance when it comes to challenges in our way?

I remember as a kid working in a warehouse, the foreman came up to me when I was complaining about the tough job I had ahead of me at the end of my shift, and said?

"You want a secret that will help you not have to deal with that task at the end of the day?"

I said "Sure", hoping he was about ready to give me a new assignment.

"Do the hardest thing first, and the rest will be easy" he replied.

I must have looked at him with an expression similar to a confused puppy learning a new trick, when he continued with?

"It's like this? when it's all said and done, you know you have to finish the job right?"

My head nodded in sad agreement.

" Well, since you have to do it anyway, why not just do it now, right away and get it over with? That way, you get to handle it when you have the most energy, as well as put it out of your head so you don't have to worry about it any longer?

That way for the rest of the shift, you can focus on all the easier tasks ahead of you and enjoy the time you're here."

Now I know this is not some great" Aristotle" wisdom, but the message has stayed with me ever since and has helped me in ever possible function of my adult life. So much so, that I am sharing it here with you now.

Even when it comes to paying our taxes or the day-to-day "Drama" that may occur, the same thing applies?deal with it then and there.

That way, it's off your plate so to speak so you can move on to something more pleasant and don't have to carry it around with you, or worry about it any longer.

Now, like every month I challenge you, as well as a little secret I learned.

Want to know how to fix this? Do you want a sure fire way to help end procrastination in your life?

Do this-

Take a moment, and write down three things, no matter how large or small that you have been putting off.

Then starting tomorrow (with Commitment) Do them! No questions asked, no excuses, just do those three things.

Then, once complete, write down three more things, and do them the next day, repeat, etc?

What you will find is a renewed feeling of accomplishment. It gives us a feeling that we took action and eliminates what ever those things we had at the back of our minds.

It may sound obvious, but how many of you will do this?

Will you?
