The truth about big tasks is they take time - and sometimes seem to offer little reward. Instead, tackle smaller tasks. You'll get more done and enjoy the rewards of a job well done.
Tame your to do list, and take time for yourself
Scheduling your day is an art that is definitely worth perfecting. A balanced schedule--one that equally distributes work and play--is one worth striving for. If you're spending all your time working, and little or no time playing, then it's time to tame your to do list and take back your time. Just as you schedule specific dates and times for your medical appointments, also schedule specific dates and times for yourself--and keep those appointments just as you would for any other important event. Time taken for yourself is time well-deserved, and is vital for a healthy body, mind and spirit.
Mini task and smile
When you have nothing but difficult and time-consuming tasks and projects on your To Do list, it's difficult to get an immediate sense of accomplishment. But, that satisfied feeling is often needed to get and stay motivated.
Be sure you sprinkle some tasks that you can definitely complete in 10 minutes or less, in between those more difficult tasks, on your To Do list.
You'll end the day smiling, because you'll get that needed sense of accomplishment throughout the hours.
