Tackling boring tasks
From Eitan Burcat
- 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.
- 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.
