Start With The Hardest/Most Important Task

I personally start with the easiest/Most important task. The joy of completing a task will increase my will power. So that i can start the hard one easily

Not only that, bulldozing thru a stack of todos is insanely satisfying. It's like getting a flywheel up to top speed that helps you power thru the 1 or 2 more intensive tasks.

After spending the morning bustin out a 12 long todo list, I have all the energy to work solid on that 1 thing for the afternoon. If I did it the other way, I'm super distracted in the afternoon, looking at dev and reddit between tasks and not finishing the stack of todos.
