You have two unrelated tasks that need doing. Do you tackle the harder one first, or the easier one first?
Definitely complete the more challenging task first, that then alleviates my stress so that I can breeze thru the easier one. Like eating the worst thing on your plate first; just get it over with.
That won't work in the long run. Find the courage to embrace life and live it. Live it well. I can see it within you.
Easier. That way one is done quickly.
Ah, I like to do my easier tasks first and get them out of the way. In some ways it preps my mind for the larger job of focusing on the difficult task.
I've always done the harder tasks first and with diligence so as to put them behind me.
When my daily tasks start out easy and become more difficult, I tend to feel little to NO gratification. How can I feel as though I've conquered anything by ending my day with the crappiest of tasks? Seems counter productive to me. Golly!
Easier. It's one less thing to do and one less thing to remember to do.
Call me the king of procrastination i get niether done until the day of
I always prefer getting the harder on done first, but I normally build momentum with easy tasks and finish the big one last.
I'm the biggest procrastinator but once I start a project I stay with it till its done. The rule of thumb is do the harder one first.
Remove "mom" and insert "grandma or fiancée" and your statement will be pretty accurate.
Easier? Nothing is ever "easy".
Liberals attack neither.
They blame it on someone else, and vilify those who would come to their rescue, then cry when their rescuer didn't do enough.
Procrastinators of the world, unite!! (Tomorrow)
That only works if your mom does them for you.
Then, you make your $5 back as soon as you find Injun Joe's treasure!
Related tasks, easy one first as a warm-up. Unrelated tasks, hard one first to get it over with, then coast through the easy one.
get the harder one over with..the easy one will get done quicker
Neither. I go take a nap and hope the two tasks magically go away...
Easier first that way when you finish the harder one, you're done and don't have to worry about anything else. If you save the easier one for last, you might find yourself frustrated from the energy/time spent on the harder task, that the easier task suddenly becomes more difficult.
It depends on what the benefit of each is. I do tasks based on their importance not their difficulty.
The harder task, first every time.
I go by time. I'm a little OCD so I have to start the task that will take the longest first. I can turn a task that was supposed to take an hour into several hours, but it will be perfect!
Easy one first, then pay someone five bucks to do the harder one, and then claim you did them both.
it would really depend on if I was doing it for me or someone else. If it were for me I would do the harder one first. Someone else will want to see some progress quickly. So for them I would do the easy one first.
It depends, if the harder one seems more fun to do I'll do that first but if the easier one seems more fun I'll do that first.
Easier one, so when I eventually give up, I can say "at least I did something."
In reality it doesn't matter cause I'll get distracted and forget what it was I was doing anyway.
I chose harder one, but I would probably just start the harder one first; then start the easier one , then go back and forth until they are both done. I would probably start a couple more tasks along the way too. It's just the way I work.
Really depends on the nature of the two tasks, any deadline issues, and my
mood. Sometimes the easier one, to get in "working" mode. Sometimes the harder one, to get it out of the way.
The easier one warms me up for the more difficult one.
Get the easy one out of the way.
I'll do the easy task when I'm tired/bored and the hard task as late as possible.
I weigh more by time/importance/deadline.
I get motivation out of accomplishing a larger number of tasks, then I have some momentum and tackle the bigger ones later.
Considering I'm the biggest procrastinator ever....easier first.
I never finish anyth-
I tend towards less and more fun, not degree of difficulty.
Thats how I am to
I said harder, but it really depends on my mood and what the tasks are.
Harder. The easy one will require less energy or thought. The harder one could be harder after the easy task is done.
It really depends on the tasks... =)
You cut the small problems and the big ones will follow
Easier ...To get it out of the way so I can focus on the other task.
School? WHO NEEDS NO SCHOOL //hides homework//
When I don't procrastinate, harder first.
Easier, to help me gain the confidence and motivation to do the harder one.
Leaving the easy junk tasks for the afternoon, when you are tired, is generally recommended in management training.
I'm far too good at putting off tasks.
