That’s the point of always doing the hard work first, so you can rest down the line, so you can recharge for what comes next.
But if you’re always doing the easy work, always starting there, then when it comes time to do the hard work, it will take longer, you’ll be burnt out and frustrated you didn’t start earlier.
But because you’re late there won’t be any time to take a break because you’ll be into the next iteration of work and after doing all that hard work where will you want to start?
With the easy stuff… and the cycle continues.
And if you can space out your projects, take the rest, take the time to recharge, rethink and reposition – it’s not about the tactics, it’s about the strategy.
