Hard work is a relative term. What's hard for me may be easy for you? Yet I surmise that all of us have tasks and chores that we deem to be hard work.
I tend to schedule those tasks or else I'd avoid them altogether. I typically schedule a few celebrations and events to look forward to as well to take the edge off the hard work.
The upside to hard work is that you feel really good when it's completed and you've done a good job as the job you've done typically lasts for some time and results in good result and reward.
Hence in the month to come I've got a number of days set aside for jobs I don't look forward to but will be happy to have them done. I know this is part of living we all contend with. Onward.
