One struggle I face with being a mostly work-from-home and a constantly many-irons-in-the-fire worker is making the time to take on the projects that I know will be tedious or difficult (and not in a fun way).
I have some great check lists and my usual boundless energy and enthusiasm, but somehow it's so much more attractive to skim FaceBook (hey, part of that is for work!) or noodle about with sales spreadsheets that only I care about, or even follow my own advice about posting more to LiveJournal.

Except, hey, wasn't I supposed to have finished that invoice prep by now? And what about the December timecard?

Surely I can find a happy medium between them all - but for now, on to tedium!

Why don't you schedule it? Set a time on your iPhone calendar, say 2 or 3 times a week (or however often you need to do it to accomplish the tasks) and give yourself 20 minutes each time to work on that project. Follow it up with 10 minutes of mindless surfing. I think it's easier to do even stuff you dislike if you have a firm date with yourself.

And invoicing or timecards? Baby that stuff HAS to be at the top of your to-do list.

Good luck. xo
