I asked my instagram peeps how they tackle those annoying tasks that need to get done. Here's what they shared:
"Work for 30 minutes then reward myself with something I want to do. Then repeat until the task I don't want to do is done. Most of the time the reward is to read or watch a YouTube video!" - Grace of Grace E Jones Photography
"Write lists and reward yourself for ticking things off. Nothing more satisfying than seeing things ticked off a to do list!" - Flynne of PocketMan
"I break the task(s) down into as many pieces as I can and then write them all on individual post it's. Then pick ONE thing to do, stick it on my monitor to keep me focused on that one thing and then get to take a quick break between. It's also satisfying to watch a super tangible "done" pile grow :) it's so hard to stay focused on the boring things that build up and build up to the point of overwhelm so this has definitely helped me TONS." - Eléna of Eléna Potter
"I make myself some fresh French Press Coffee and savor the whole process :)." - Mo of Mo Bella Russo
"I did turn off email this morning and put my phone on do not disturb. Also: REWARDS. Finish this drawing and you can eat that cookie, watch a show, whatever. Basically I'm a toddler in a grown ass woman's body" - Carly of Unpatterned
I found these so helpful! Common themes? List making and a reward system!
What do you do?
Good luck on those pesky tasks!
