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 they get done. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each 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.

Overview

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 they get done. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each 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. 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 probably the one that can 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. Bestselling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He details twenty-one practical and doable steps that will help you stop procrastinating and get more of the important tasks done -- today!

    Instructive Message Delivered in a Fun Manner

    If you have a problem with procrastination, "Eat That Frog" is a definite must-read to overcome dragging your feet. This self-help book by Brian Tracy teaches readers to determine what is the most important tasks that need to be accomplished for the day and to set out to fulfil the accomplishment of those tasks. The usage of a comic book style book makes it a much easier delivery to get the point across to the reader in a fun manner, while still delivering an instructive message.

    Prioritize, Don't Procrastinate!

    Eat that Frog from SmarterComics is a full-blown package of entertainment that will empower readers to avoid procrastination and notice more fluidity in their behavior and the manner in which they complete their daily tasks. Essentially a self-help book focused on helping individuals "conquer their most difficult tasks first," Eat that Frog will train the mind to complete the most daunting tasks first and remove it from their daily "To-Do" list. The original, best-selling book by Brian Tracy and Eat that Frog by SmarterComics cut right to the chase, stating that the book/comic is about improving time management skills, discipline, and decision making-three factors that can profoundly change the landscape of one's life. The book revolves around the dichotomy of P's: procrastination versus prioritizing one's responsibilities. Eat that Frog from SmarterComics is fun, engaging, and is meaningful for a variety of ages-especially youth.

    Very Helpful

    Eat That Frog from Smarter Comics is a self-help display, which will steer readers in the correct direction of success. There is definitely a humorous touch of how Brian Tracy gets his point across and it is quite brilliant. I'm sure there are plenty of readers stuck in the typical sense of dressing for success and being only intellectually ready. However, Brian Tracey shows us that managing our time is the true way of success. We must that procrastinate. In addition, I've always been a fan of Smarter Comics. It's always fun to read the comic layout of literature.

    Mr. Tracy¿s ¿Eat That Frog¿ is a source for techniques which may

    Mr. Tracy’s “Eat That Frog” is a source for techniques which may help some people organize their creative thinking in a manner which will help them use it more productively.  It is a book which advocates common-sense time management habits.  Some examples are: write checklists of your tasks; start, first thing in your working day, on your hardest task of the day; break all projects down into small, manageable segments.  But this book is an “Of Course You Can” book: there is little guidance in this book about how to determine why, so far, you haven’t used all these so-sensible tips and tricks.  If you could easily accomplish the tips and tricks, you might not be reading this book in the first place.  This book has a place in a collection of books.  Start with Cindy Glovinsky, Judith Kohlberg, Julie Morgenstein, and Gail Blanke, then read Eat that Frog to refine the wisdom you’ve gained.  Lauren Williams, Casual Uncluttering LLC, Woodinville, WA  USA
