Publisher's Summary

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Eat That Frog! shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively.

In this fully revised and updated edition, Tracy adds two new chapters. The first explains how you can use technology to remind yourself of what is most important and protect yourself from what is least important. The second offers advice for maintaining focus in our era of constant distractions, electronic and otherwise. But one thing remains unchanged: Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done - today!

Critic Reviews

"Besides displaying [Tracy's] inimitable tone and impeccable pacing, the audio is another showcase for his palpable optimism about individual possibilities. The sound of Tracy's voice doesn't just bring his ideas - it makes you want to put them into action." ( AudioFile)

good time management

This book teaches time management and provides great tips to achieve your goals which is somewhat similar to Franklin Covey's seminar/workshop called FOCUS.

Good reminders and tactics

This is a good book for those of us that find it hard to organize our massive to-do list. It is clear and direct guidance. You can utilize the strategies immediately. Since it is a short read, I have listened to it a few times to get the techniques instilled into my thought process.

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.

Great Refresher on Goal Setting and Prioritization

I like the way that Brian Tracy put the information together into clear, action steps. If you have read books about goal setting, then you will not find a great deal of new information in this book. A couple of great tips hit home with me. One is to create zones of silence where there are no distractions or interruptions. Another was that if you spend 10% of your time planning, you will save 90% of your time on the project. A little preparation goes a long way. If you need a refresher course on goal setting, balance and priorities, then I highly recommend this book.

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.

Precisely what I need for New Year's

Appreciated author reading his own text. Suggestions in book aren't new, but author's spin is insightful and inspiring.

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!

To the point

Straight to the point and so motivating. Although the sound is a little bit low, the narrator/author has done very well. Deserve what I paid for.
