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."

Highly recommend this book! I've been listening to it over and over again to make sure I absorb all the ideas. Very helpful! A+

You are the sum of what you read!
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.
I haven't listened to many and this one got me addicted to Audible
The frog and it's willingness to be eaten of course
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.
Eat the biggest ugliest frog first. Do the hardest thing
first as it usually is the most important and thus
the most productive
Stop procrastination. Buy it now.
Seriously stop procrastinating. Buy now!
Non-fiction fan! Bring on the self-improvement, business, sales & marketing books!
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 :)
This is not a very long book. I think that such good info in a short time is memorable.
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.
Worth a listen!
Yes!! I found it helpful to learn how to accomplish tasks more effectively.
The examples in the story
If the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day!
Every morning eat one frog, the ugliest one, first thing
Recommended to numerous friends, they all loved it
Yes, Yes, Yes, this book has really helped me become more efficient in all areas of my life and not feet so overwhelmed.
It gave me some peace and a feeling that I can do something about the overwhelming life of a working mom and wife:)

"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 listened to this several times due to the inspiring anecdotes giving me a boost to do things myself. Also, the techniques in the audiobook amke sense and are easy to do. Well worth the money and your time.
"Concise and without fluff"
Great refresher on productivity and techniques you can use immediately. You could finish this in a commute.
"Jam packed with ideas for getting stuff done."
I had this book on my shelf for months and procrastinated about reading it, I wish I hadn't, it's packed with ideas, tips and techniques for getting those jobs done that you keep putting off. It's helped me a lot and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
"Work focused time management advice"
Useful tips but one size fits all approach somewhat grating - very business world orientated. I will however eat more frogs.
"Brilliant and so helpful!"
All through the book it helps and lifts you. It breaks down problems and gives easy answers that are achievable. I listen to it regularly to keep me on the straight and narrow!
He is slightly annoying but you soon get over it as he is so helpful!!
No I did it on a to and from work and that works better.
I would def recomend this book.
"It works if you work it"
Listened to it once. Took action. Worked...what more can you ask for! An easy listen, especially as you can skip between chapters very easily.
"Great points that we all need to look t"
this was a wonderful read . The points are actionable and practical it's all point that can be put to work right away. You will love it
"Practical, useful and ready to apply"
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.
