I also use these strategies to make sure things get done-
1. Make a list and prioritise
2. Make that list no more than six items long
3. Get the least favourite job over with first, for instance I hate dusting, so I make that the first job on my list
4. Put on some great music that I love, I find it lifts the mood and I get through those jobs maybe a bit faster and in a better frame of mind.
5. Put a time limit on it, set an alarm on your phone and get as much done in that time as you can
Time is precious, lets not waste a single minute.
