Eat that Frog! By Brian Tracy. Presented by Mary T. Castañuela. Time. We all are overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time. New tasks and responsibilities just keep coming in. Therefore, we will never be able to do everything we have to do….. So what do we do?!?!.

So what do we do?!?!
This is your frog!
If you have to eat a live frog, it doesn’t pay to sit and look at it for very long.
What are your goals and objectives?
clear, written goals.
Before you begin scrambling up the ladder of success, make sure that it is leaning against the right building.
Planning is bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it now.
So how do you eat your biggest, ugliest frog?
In other words, if you have 10 items to do, two of those items will turn out to be worth as much or more than the other eight items put together.
What are the potential consequences of doing or not doing this task?
There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.
If you’re not getting better,
you’re getting worse.
A journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step.
Focus on a single action that you can take.
Deliberately procrastinate on those tasks that are of low value so that you have more time for those tasks that can really make a difference in your life and work.
Eat your frog for breakfast!
Starting with your most difficult job gives you a jump start on the day. You’ll be more energized and productive from then on.
