Difficult task is a work requiring massive spending of resources to be completed. A fuller variant of difficult task definition may sound like this: it is a work that can be accomplished only by a person (or a group of persons) who is strengthen with necessary amount of resources of certain qualities, so they may include not only time, money, specific tools, but also certain mental and physical skills. Of course, level and understanding of task’s difficultness may strongly vary from case to case, as for example – digging a long and deep trench with a spade in the heat is a hard task meaning that it requires long and strenuous work, however driving an atomic submarine from point A to point B is also a hard task because it requires certain highly-skilled efforts and specific knowledge. In other words the most difficult task is a task that cannot be done by anyone, but only by a person who possesses some outstanding experience and skills. The synonym in this case is a high-skill job, and if work is difficult, but not qualified, it can be called a hard or strenuous task. Any hard or difficult tasks can be facilitated with a help of effective time management, and this can be done with a help of special software, like one presented below:
