Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time

There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.

Publisher's Summary

There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You'll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done.

In his trademark high-energy style, acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He reminds us: "The purpose of time-management skills, of eating that frog, and getting more done in less time, is to enable you to spend more 'face time' with the people you care about, doing the things that give you the greatest amount of joy in life."

    "Wonderful"

    This is also a great book on time management and should be read first before reading any other time management book.

    "Enjoyed the book"

    Everything you should already know but a good reminder. I really like the frog analogy. Sometimes a change in presentation helps motivate.

    "Great Book"

    The author makes a valid point stating that we all have 24 hours in a day and the quality of our lives is determined by how effectively we choose to spend those 24 hours. Running a small business, I found this to be packed full of useful tools to use.

    "It works"

    It's awesome. After finish listening, I started working on the most difficult homework from my online course, and finished it in Sunday afternoon. With the flow created, I continued working on it, and finished next week's discussion as well. Felt satisfied as stated. Today I went to work, and started to work on the most important job right away, without distraction by the internet as before, so that I am able to take a day off tomorrow. It was awesome. I hope I don't forget it in the future. Those kind of motivation books usually work the best in the begining.

    "Ribbit Ribbit"

    Great little book on ending procrastination and goal setting. Eat that Frog has twenty-one tips with great examples and complementary exercises. Each of the tips could be used by itself or in conjunction with other suggested plans for ending time wasters, procrastination, and various other goal destroying activities. This book gives the reader lots of ideas on how to eat your ugliest frog and is a quick and easy listen. The only reason I did not award it 5stars is because some of the examples overlapped and it became repetitive towards the end.

    "Surprisingly good"

    Very good. Keeps one's interest. Pulls information from other sources, but does a good job for the most part of identifying what is realistic. Generally pretty motivating.

    "Eat Your Frog and Spank that Tadpole"

    You'll get the point when you read the book. It's always amazing to me that everything follows the 80/20 rule... but, we have to put it into practice.

    "The 21 ways TELLS you to Eat that Frog"

    Good stuff. Can apply a couple of those right way. Why to Eat that Frog is clearly explained, How to eat the ugliest frog @ that moment is not very clear. Overall good stuff!
