I was not motivated.
The information was repetitive.
No, the voice was monotonous.
Could not invest the time to complete the audiobook.
This book was pretty much what I expect amongst other books I've listened to here.
This book was pretty much the abridged version of No Excuses! (Unabridged)
There were no characters in this title.
How to start on big projects that either have complexity to them or are just overwhelming.
This book was pretty much the abridged version of No Excuses! (Unabridged). It goes straight to the point on what to do and why for get started on what you want out of life. This is another book that you need to take notes on to get the full effect since there is definitely a lot of information that you will need to review afterwards and beyond.
This book is really a GEM in terms of getting rid of procrastinating problem.
I have learned a lot from this book and still apply the ideas presented in this book till now. The ideas presented here has become my habit and I can say I have got rid of that bad nasty habit of procrastinating away from my plate.
Eat that frog! NOW....
I was very unhappy at my job and was having a hard time showing up. I read this book and realized that I didn't know how to do my job well. In fact I lacked sufficient training on how to prioritize and get things done. I was drowning in low value tasks, chatting with coworkers hoping i will get more motivation to get the job done. After listening to this book i realized that my dissatisfaction originated from lack of knowledge on how to do the job efficiently and well, and not from disliking my profession. After listening to the first 3-4 chaptes, confusion dissappeared, and I clearly saw what the problem was. As a result, I was able to develop a solid plan on how to go back to work and fully enjoy it. Thank you Brian!
I have read the a few years ago and felt I needed a wake up call. Great read many times. Just eat the frog and move on. The income is worth it.
Brian Tracy (the author) is like your know-it-all relative who likes to pontificate at family functions. Most of what Tracy says is some combination of boring, obvious, and predictable. Also, he's fond of citing dubious statistics at every turn (example: "Only 2% of people can work effectively without supervision". Really, Brian? Where did you get that factoid?). "Eat that Frog!" does contain some valid advice -- but don't expect anything surprising, insightful, or new. If you just need a kick in the pants to get going, you may find this book useful. If you're looking for something beyond run-of-the-mill advice, look elsewhere.
This is a very useful audio. I am a procrastinator and this audio from Brian Tracy is very practical and sensible about how to 'eat your frog' for breakfast. This has defiantly started working in my life and I can see myself improving using Brian's tips - Thanks very much.
Why on earth is it not possible to edit or remove my reviews??
I don't really care how many people Tracy has had seminars with and how many countries sell his book. After reading a lot of really good and lifechanging books lately, this was a huge letdown. No inspiring examples, no interesting research. Basically his basic premise is: "Hey, just do it already, do the most difficult thing first, see? It's easy! You'll be AMAZED of how easy it is. (And remember to make lists for absolutely everything)." Repeat ad infinitum.
This is simplistic and boring and likely not worth your money if you like some actual meat on your arguments and not someone who just tells you how simple and easy everything is.
