Hard Stuff First

Wherever you can (while allowing for deadlines), prioritise the hardest tasks. It might be the opposite of what you want to do – it’s so satisfying powering through all the easy and enjoyable tasks to give us a false sense of accomplishment. But by chipping away at the hard and unpleasant ones first, you’ll get a greater sense of satisfaction in the long term and boost your spirits and self-confidence. This also leaves the nice things to do at the end of the day when your energy levels are probably lagging, and the last thing you want to do is face a horrible task.
