Immediately move eggs into ice water!The cold shock should help the shells separate, and they'll peel quite easily. I'm usually to lazy to actually put them in an ice water bath, so instead just pour off the boiling water and run a bunch of cold water over the eggs (either in a colander or the original pot) as I peel the rest.
