Eat That Frog!

Get More of the Important Things Done – Today!

“There’s an old saying that if the first thing you do in the morning is to eat a live frog, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that it’s probably the worst thing you’ll do all day.”

“Eat That Frog! takes this saying as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day – the one you are most likely to put off, but also probably the one that will have the greatest positive impact on our life.  There simply isn’t enough time to do everything on our “To Do” list – and there never will be.  Successful people don’t try to do everything.  They focus on the most important tasks and make sure they get done.”

What an great little book – small in size, easy to read, straight forward, to the point and yet packed full of advice that you could implement today.  A few  quotes which really stood out were:-

“Successful, effective people are those who launch directly into their major tasks and then discipline themselves to work steadily and single-mindedly until those tasks are complete.”

“The number one reason why some people get more work done faster is because they are absolutely clear about their goals and objectives and they don’t deviate from them.”

“Resolve to do something every single day that moves you toward your major goal.”

“Read in your field for at least one hour every day…The more you learn and know, the more confident and motivated you feel.”

“Take one full day off each week.”
