Tackling boring tasks

Repetitive

  • Batch similar parts together
  • Improve the efficiency of the batched tasks
  • If possible - automate (script? app?) - invest in automation proportionally to the time that'll get spent manually.

Non repetitive

  • Write down the series of small actions needed to complete the task - not in the todo list, but in a separate text file
  • Go through the actions, checking them off as you go

And music, of course. Music. Or noise.

If the tasks don't require thinking - Podcasts and Audio books by all means.
