Whenever I have something unpleasant or unwanted to do, I just remind myself to "eat the frog." If you were to start each day by eating a frog, nothing any worse could happen to you during that day. So when you are dreading something, just go ahead and eat the frog (get that task out of the way)! Things will be looking up after that for sure!

If the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day! - Mark Twain 201 "The key to happiness, satisfaction, great success and a wonderful feeling of personal power and effectiveness is for you to develop the habit of eating your frog 1st thing every day when you start work." from "Eat That Frog! 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time" by Brian Tracy
If you really hate to do something that you know you should and have committed to yourself to do...like exercise, for example, 211, get it out of the way rather than putting it off. It's too easy to find excuses NOT to do it, so do it first and then it's over with.
