Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy
“Eat that Frog” by Brian Tracy provides the 21 most effective methods for conquering procrastination and accomplishing more.
This book is full of great common sense tools to get yourself to do what you’d rather not do. Basically what you need to do is make lists. On the top of that list, you put the thing you would rather avoid doing the most. This would be your “Frog”. Then do that thing first, or eat that frog……then work your way down that list from the next slightly smaller, less ugly frog, down to prime rib, Oreos, tacos, and cherry pie at the end of the list, if you could ever get there!
The whole book boils down to “do the hardest task first” and “make checklists.” Not exactly rocket science, but we gotta admit, we found ourselves using the catchy phrase “Eat That Frog!” A LOT!
