How to Get Hard Things Done with Less Struggle? Let’s face it: life is hard sometimes. At some point, we’re all faced with situations we really don’t like and we have to take action even when we really want to curl up in a little ball until the hard part is over. Happens. So, here are my favorite ways to work harder with less struggle.

1. Do It Now!
Indeed, I know, doing the hardest thing initially is normally the last thing any of us need to do.
However, it is like taking a bandage. We all know that if you try to slowly pull off a bandage, the pain feels worse and lasts longer. That’s why most of us prefer to just dodge it and be done with it.
The same is true for difficult tasks. Instead of waiting until the last minute, the pressure is building on you throughout the day, just do it! Get up in the morning and do the hard things first so they get out of the way.
Break it down into manageable pieces Everything is less difficult when you break it down into smaller, manageable pieces. Often, we struggle when something so big, so big, and scary seems in front of us.
We get so overwhelmed that we even begin to figure out how to take the first step. We get caught up in the struggle. It can trap us so much that we end up taking no action.
Not only will you feel better – in body, mind, and spirit, but think about how easy everything else will feel once you get the hard stuff out of the way.
2.Build a Support System
Instead, break whatever hard work you have to do into manageable steps. The smaller the steps, the less overwhelmed you’ll feel and the more likely you’ll get through the hard part quickly if you try to do the hard things all at once.
It’s almost impossible to do hard things when you’re doing it alone. If you’re without a healthy support system, even simple tasks can sometimes feel more difficult. When you have a team of supporters around you, the struggle seems much bigger than that.
With a support system, there are people you can count on to support you physically, emotionally and/or spiritually. Sometimes, that support system can help you through even the toughest of things.
No Support Team? Join a care group, discover a specialist, call a companion, or be your own best emotionally supportive network. Deep down, you know you can do it. So keep telling yourself that you deserve to get through these difficult phases of life and support yourself along the way.
In the end, we have to trust ourselves first anyway. So we too can start supporting ourselves 100 percent now and always. It’s also easy to build a good support system if you’re already your biggest supporter. This will be sure to attract others who will support you in a similar way.
Best effort means you’re doing your best, but you also expect that there may be some snags along the way. The best effort also means you trust yourself to recognize and fix those mistakes.
3. Strive for Best Effort, Not Perfection
It’s already hard enough to do some things. But when you add in the pressure of perfectionism, it’s nearly impossible. If the fear of not being perfect is getting in your way of handling difficult things, then you have to strive for the best instead of the right one.
Nothing is ever perfect in life. Mistakes are how you learn and grow. So go out of your way and do your best in every moment. You are just human The more you get out there and give a valiant effort, the simpler life will be and the harder activities with less battle.
4. Be Your Own Cheerleader
Not everyone has a great support system set up. In fact, that’s probably why things have been feeling so hard for you lately. It’s hard when you’re on your own. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It certainly doesn’t mean that you are doomed to struggle forever.
Mirror work is an incredible method to be your own team promoter. So are leaving motivational notes around your home or workplace. Before working hard, stand in front of the mirror.
Look at yourself without flinching and reveal to yourself that you can do it… That you deserve an easy result and that you’re good enough, smart enough – and stubborn enough at it – everyone likes you. If talking to yourself feels too awkward, to begin with, leaving motivational messages around your home and/or office is also a great way to remind yourself that you can do it!
5. Practice, Practice, Practice
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? you practice. What do I do when I have something difficult to deal with (like telling someone “no”), especially because I’m a fanatical people pleaser? I practice what I need to say to them first.
Maybe you have to give a speech and you hate public speaking. Wouldn’t practice be helpful and make it that much easier? When you give yourself some time to go through the process in your mind, out loud or however you can, it makes the process a lot easier when you’re actually going through it.
It will also eliminate a lot of struggle when you work harder, as practice will show you where your current weak spots are.
