    Wonderful!! I really love to hear how things are progressing. You're already an asset by definition!

    Good job, WL.
    You are already onto something, but something I read that works for some is to make tackling all your least favorite tasks the first part of your day (time sensitive things permitting)
    Then leave the more enjoyable things until after.

    Try to view it as a reward system. In turn the work itself becomes a motivator.
    Like when you were small, eat all your carrots and you get a cookie.

    During busy times, I write a list on my desk of things I keep putting off. I make it my goal to address each one and cross them off as I go. It becomes tangible and something I can see. It works for me.

    Terrific! Just watch out for over-committing while you're still trying to get your regular work up to par.
