The example sounds like my typical working day, in the example you have 7 tasks. What people forget is that usually those 7 tasks probably represent 7 different customers. Which means 7 people requesting updates on how things are going.
Get rid of the 3 easy tasks first = 3 less things to worry about, 3 less people to keep updated.
