A recent study found that it takes the average medium-sized company 264 hours to comply with its tax requirements. Here are three tips that will turn the avalanche into something you can dispense with efficiently and maybe even pleasantly.
1. Similar tasks? Batch them up and do all of those like tasks at once. Repetition builds up muscle memory and keeps your mind focused. Concentration stimulates the brain.
2. Separate hard from easy – Do hard tasks when you have energy or creativity for them. Hold the easy ones for when your energy flags.
3. Constructive acceptance – Accepting gracefully the things that can’t be changed and turning your deliberate acceptance into a constructive tactic.
