You have a job in front of you that you're not exactly dying to dig into. But the longer you delay doing the work that is necessary, the bigger your challenges will become. So try to get started on your work as soon as you can. If you just dive right in and work steadily to get things over with, you will lessen the amount of stress in your day and keep things from getting any more complicated. Skip lunch if you have to -- the more you do today, the less you will have to do tomorrow.
