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."

    "Yep. I guess I'd better eat that frog!"

    This is a very good reminder of how important it is to keep a vigilant watch on performing tasks that need to get done, in order that we can move to more pleasant, less irksome tasks. It also provides a number of great methods to move along your list of things that need to be done for the day/week/year.

    "Simple and powerful. A must read."
    Where does Eat That Frog! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I haven't listened to many and this one got me addicted to Audible


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The frog and it's willingness to be eaten of course


    Have you listened to any of Brian Tracy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to "No Excuses". Eat that Frog sounds a little more polished.
    Who cares in the end as the message given far outweighs
    any care factor I have for performance.


    What did you learn from Eat That Frog! that you would use in your daily life?

    Eat the biggest ugliest frog first. Do the hardest thing
    first as it usually is the most important and thus
    the most productive


    Any additional comments?

    Stop procrastination. Buy it now.
    Seriously stop procrastinating. Buy now!

    "Great advice!"
    If you could sum up Eat That Frog! in three words, what would they be?

    I am better off for reading this because I am able to tackle my day more effectively - so my 3 words would have to be 'Eat That Frog!' Unfortunately, you may have to get the book to find out what that means :)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat That Frog!?

    This is not a very long book. I think that such good info in a short time is memorable.


    What did you learn from Eat That Frog! that you would use in your daily life?

    I don't really want to be a spoiler on this so let me just say that when I sit down with a to-do list or I plan out my month, week or day, I know what order to put things into. I also delegate tasks more effectively as well.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a listen!

    "Procrastination what Procrastination"

    Having always been a procrastinator and having the pain of doing everything at the last moment. Which only disappointed myself but those important to me, I found the 21 ways that Brian Tracy describes very helpful and insightful into how my life is run. Knowing that although I drop the ball sometimes does not have to mean things cannot get done and my life improves. I recommend Brian's audio book highly.

    "Tackling lifes big ugly frogs"

    Being one of life’s terrible procrastinators I have read many books on curing my habit, but

    None have been as good as this at getting to the root of everyday procrastination.

    I just love this book, and the analogies of eating a frog, and many methods the author has used, to tackle, even the trickiest of lifes big ugly frogs. One of my best downloads from audible.

    I've read a few self improvement and performance books but this is the most useful so far. Brian Tracey has taken the best strategies from many experts and condensed them into one short, easy to read book that will give you just what you need to implement those strategies right away. Highly recommended.
