I flip your last tip: I do my hard things first, and leave the easy things for after. I work best in the morning, so I use my best energy for my hard, deep-thinking tasks (usually writing/research). After lunch, I turn to the easier tasks. I leave mindless stuff for late afternoon.

That's me, though.

I am somehow halfway between Rachel and Marcus: I start with difficult task and shift to easier ones (such as writing this answer to a blogpost;-)) whenever I notice I need a break.
Variety surely helps me being focused, although I do not think this applies to all. Some might need longer to start focusing and shifting from one topic to another would just make them never be able to focus on anything at all.
