Eat that frog a book review


Have you had your frog for the day ? Brian Tracy takes a very motivational approach to tackling the big and small obstacles of the day by encouraging the process of getting the large and more yucky ones completed first.

I don't know why this is a strategy that I was not already using but just this week it has helped me to tackle a project that I have been dreading for a month.This book offers 21 ways to stop procrastinating and start getting things done, with a big focus on completing the more difficult task first.

As a goal for the new year finishing out jobs at home and work is my new focus. I've been blessed and successful at many things but I feel like that extra push is missing. Procrastination is a evil little devil that sneaks in and sucks up a complete day and has you looking around wondering where the day went.

All of the suggestions are completely easy to implement and I enjoyed the text and the thought of my challenges as a little frog vs all the other nightmares they could be.

This book was really just a healthy reminder of the little things we let get in the way of our success. Overlooking the true goal and focusing on the one task that might be a little uncomfortable but has the very affect on the ultimate goal.

Here are a few of the the suggestions from the book like; Plan everyday in advance, follow the 80/20 rule, consider the consequences, and practice creativity. Each chapter breaks down these twenty-one suggestions and how to get started quickly.

Overall I really agree with the author that we are constantly overbooked and there is never enough time in the day for all we have to accomplish but lets work hard at completing the most important and challenging task.
