Get the nasty tasks done first

Akomplish Radio


How do we determine the order of execution for our day? by priority? by size? no… by nastiness, by ugliness, by disgust!

In this episode, we explore how to deal with the tasks we tend to procrastinate the most. Specifically, tasks that we HAVE to do but don’t want to do. This idea has best been illustrated by the famous Mark Twain quote:

If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.

Mark Twain

How does this fit into planning your day? Do we just look for the worst things to do without regard for priority or outcomes? Lets dive in and find out.
