I have it down to a fine art now. I used to try to put off the Easy Jobs till I discovered that they tended to be really nasty.
Now I don't do them at all.
What I think will be an interesting Job tends to be easy so there is no challenge there. Now I just put off what I can for as long as I can and then follow the lines of Do it right First Time so I don't have to do it again! Some think I'm a perfectionist but I'm just Lazy.
Of course 25 + years ago I had a reputation for doing poor work because I did the job in the same day as I was given it or the next day when it came in late. The Customers insisted that I wasn't doing the work right because they didn't have to wait weeks to get the thing back and still not have it working.
Apparently if you store it for weeks and return it not working it's considered as Good Workmanship where as doing it immediately and returning it working properly is Bad Workmanship.
I never did quite figure out those people but it certainly didn't do anything to encourage me to continue in my misguided ways.
