Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time | [Brian Tracy]

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."

    "Great lessons"

    Here Brian Tracy teaches us lessons in 21 steps. I've read the book and know listened to it on audio book twice. Brian has great knowledge, however, his reading should be done by someone else. His tone never changes and it's mono-toned the whole time.

    "You know this already..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Eat That Frog! to be better than the print version?

    If you're interested in this book, then you're probably a busy person who doesn't have the time for reading a paperback... so, I recommend the audio edition. Easy to listen to in the car!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Eat That Frog!?

    It's easy to fall into the trap of tackling the myriad small tasks that overwhelm our daily to-do lists... Eat That Frog forces you to think about procrastinating on the little stuff and focus ALL your energy on the biggest, most important tasks. Sounds obvious but few people I know do this with consistency.

    Smart Friendly Comfortable


    Any additional comments?

    Just a good old fashion this-makes-sense book. You'll find yourself nodding in agreement with a lot of chapters. Chapter 4 was the best for me, but many other stood out as well. Somewhere in this book you'll find enough knowledge to make it a very worthwhile purchase. Great job Mr.Tracy!

    Story
    "Pretty good motivator to get moving on things"

    I really liked his examples of tasks and goals along with how to tackle the issues that are keeping you from performing at peak optimization. I did, however, begin to think towards the end, that he was flip-flopping his stance to get the biggest, ugliest task out of the way first on down to slicing it up into manageable chunks "bologna" or busting a hole in part of it "swiss cheese," and then went all the way to say that you need to enjoy life, take time off, and spend time with your family. While the beginning is a huge motivator to get moving, but completely unrealistic for having a life, the latter part is more enjoyable thinking, but left me de-motivated.

    Keep this in mind while you listen, take notes along the way, and you're surely reach a happy medium.
