Do you have any of those tasks or projects that seem to just pile up? Or a task that gets larger the longer you ignore it? If you’re like me, you probably ignore it for a reason. Maybe you don’t really want to do it, but you have to eventually.
One thing that really helps me deal with these (until I figure out some way to make them go away or have someone else do them) is to split them up. For example, suppose you have 100 invoices to enter into your accounting software. Just do 10 or 20 in one sitting – set the rest aside for later! It becomes much easier and each ‘split up portion’ is far less formidable that the whole.
How about you? Do you have tips for dealing with those ‘dreaded tasks’?
