Remember Brian Tracy’s 2001 book “Eat That Frog!”? It certainly sold a few copies. The basic concept is simple — you need to tackle the biggest, most important and most difficult task first. This is your frog. If you tackle the tough stuff first, everything else is relatively easy. And, if you have more than one frog, prioritize the biggest, ugliest one.
I’ve got a copy of this book somewhere. Yet, still I procrastinate. I still shove the most difficult tasks further down the to-do list. Proof, if indeed proof is needed, that self-help books are only worth the investment if you’re willing to help yourself.
