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."

    "Classic wisdom"

    I read this book years ago and the lessons are still fresh! I have a terrible habit of not following through on key tasks. This book is simple, but sometimes it's not that you need to learn a new skill as much as you need to remember the reason for focuing on an old one. Good book!

    "Informative. Practical."

    Information was practical. Everybody is capable of doing this, whether or not they will, is what separates those that are successful from those that are not.

    "Good info. Presentation could have been better."

    This book is better read than listened to. The speaker made me crazy with lists, tasks, lists, sub tasks, more lists and goals. Good information but the monotonous cadence left me rewinding a lot and feeling lectured to and pressured. In a sense listening through to the end was like eating a frog.

    "Life changing!"

    This book was first recommended to me many years ago. It was spoken about often by my mentors at conferences. Of course, being the procrastinator I am, I put off reading it until yesterday.
    I am so grateful for this audible app! I have listened to the entire book in a day. Took notes and bookmarked key areas that I need to listen to again . Being able to stop the cycle of procrastination is the critical area I need to overcome to advance in my business. I am putting these steps in motion now!
    Thank you, Brian Tracy, for this gift.

    "Excellent intro to personal time management"

    Great tools to better organization and control of your time. Highly recommended for anyone looking for step by step techniques to achieve your goals, but not heavy on procrastination theory or psychological reasoning. Regardless the tech stands.
