Discussion on: I'm Slow And That's Okay

I'm the other way around, I do all the easiest, quickest, smallest tasks first to allow myself to have the time to dedicate myself to the hardest work. This also depends on priorities but normally I work like that. This was also the way I operated back in school during exam season.

Though... you've made me realize that there is a huge downside to this at least when it comes to my life outside work. I procrastinate too much on the things I really don't like/want to do hahaha eating the frog is too hard for me, I'll leave it for tomorrow XD

One of the things I've most realized through this is that the approach to solving a problem is really personal. There are tradeoffs either way, and everyone has a different reason they choose one approach over the other.

For what it's worth, while I prefer to eat the frog with work projects, I definitely procrastinate the frogs in my personal life 😁. Looking at you, screen door that should have been replaced ten years ago....
