"We procrastinate the tasks we wish we didn't need to address, until they pile up to the point where it causes us nothing but grief and anxiety. So, the best thing to do is to get such a task done first. What is the one thing you've got on your plate that you wish you didn't have to do today? Mark it down, and start your day getting that particular task done. Clearing the uncomfortable tasks off your list clears the path for getting everything else done efficiently and leaves you feeling good at the end of each day."
