Know Your Productive Time
There are certain times during your day where you might feel more confident or willing to tackle particular issues. Shawna Clark, owner of Clark Executive Coaching, a leadership development firm, recommends that you “schedule your challenging tasks during the time of the day when you have the most brainpower and energy.”
On a similar note, Dr. Minden suggests that you “set aside a ‘productivity hour’ to address the projects you like the least but have to address. Do this when you have the most energy to devote to what you’re doing.”
You can start paying attention to which moments of your day seem to be the best ones for you and then, assign these “unattractive” activities to those moments.
