That Pile at the Corner of Your Desk

Last week my personal Facebook status was: How do you turn cleaning the linen closet into a drinking game? It was a tongue-in-cheek question, posted to make myself accountable for starting and finishing a disagreeable task. Yet it garnered more responses than many of my status updates. I ended up with a lot of momentum.
This got me thinking about those projects we all push to the corners of our desks: things that we aren’t good at, don’t like to do, are unfamiliar, administrative, etc.
How do you motivate yourself to get through that pile at the corner of your desk?
