On a laundry list of tasks to get done, there is, without a doubt, at least a few that you are not particularly excited about getting to. Those are the ones that linger on and stack up. The article, “Our Favorite Way to Get Our Least Favorite Work Done,” by Erin Greenawald offers up a smart way to get these tasks out of the way.

Next time your stuck on you to-do list, keep this idea in mind.
