In his trademark high-energy style, acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He reminds us: "The purpose of time-management skills, of eating that frog, and getting more done in less time, is to enable you to spend more 'face time' with the people you care about, doing the things that give you the greatest amount of joy in life."

Being one of life’s terrible procrastinators I have read many books on curing my habit, but
None have been as good as this at getting to the root of everyday procrastination.
I just love this book, and the analogies of eating a frog, and many methods the author has used, to tackle, even the trickiest of lifes big ugly frogs. One of my best downloads from audible.
I've listened to this several times due to the inspiring anecdotes giving me a boost to do things myself. Also, the techniques in the audiobook amke sense and are easy to do. Well worth the money and your time.
All through the book it helps and lifts you. It breaks down problems and gives easy answers that are achievable. I listen to it regularly to keep me on the straight and narrow!
He is slightly annoying but you soon get over it as he is so helpful!!
No I did it on a to and from work and that works better.
I would def recomend this book.
I had this book on my shelf for months and procrastinated about reading it, I wish I hadn't, it's packed with ideas, tips and techniques for getting those jobs done that you keep putting off. It's helped me a lot and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
Having always been a procrastinator and having the pain of doing everything at the last moment. Which only disappointed myself but those important to me, I found the 21 ways that Brian Tracy describes very helpful and insightful into how my life is run. Knowing that although I drop the ball sometimes does not have to mean things cannot get done and my life improves. I recommend Brian's audio book highly.
Attracted by the title, I was hopeful to learn new tips in time management, planning my day and grasping opportunity. I listened, and I listened. Past road works, past traffic jams, past the M6 motorway at rush hour...I tuned in hoping for the golden chalice, the moment that would inspire me. I have to admit I gave in 10 minutes or so before the end.
In a nutshell I've learned :
1. You should write lists (yep, solid advice but hardly ground breaking?)
2. Prioritise the items on your list (erm, yes, got that bit too)
3. Do the biggest things first.
Perhaps my opinion on this book has been influenced by the fact I've listened in straight after finishing The Success Factors by Jack Canfield (get it!), and unfortunately with my mind buzzing with lots of new ideas, this one barely made the grade.
On the positive side it's nicely narrated and the voice and tone are pleasant to listen to, I just wish it had lived up to the promising title. On the Snog / Marry / Avoid list this book wouldn't get past the first date I'm afraid. There are far more comprehensive and inspiring books available, this has taught me not to be lured by an attractive cover.
An insightful and succinct collection of time management tools. I was dubious about spending time reading this when I'm already so busy but it was a good investment of time and extremely motivational. Am now off to identify and eat my biggest frog!
Listened to it once. Took action. Worked...what more can you ask for! An easy listen, especially as you can skip between chapters very easily.
Sound quality was tunnel-like. Wonderful concepts & practices shared in this audio. Must listen! Don't miss out on this one!
"A must read if you want to reach max productivity!"
More great work by Brian Tracy. This is one of his first books that I've read it now that I have the audiobook I've listening to it many times. If you're not familiar with Mr. Tracy's work I really do recommend you starting with this one or time power. Can't go wrong with either one!
"Excellent Use Of My Time!"
Concise, compassionate and useful tips, delivered in a friendly and non/condescending tone. Will be happy to recommend and read again!
"It has changed my life."
Fantastic!!!!! It is a very inspiring book. I just would like to say I am very happy for reading it.
"Highly executable/increased efficiency & effective"
If you're looking to save time increase efficiency or increase your effectiveness, this book is it. Excellent book to read.
"A must read"
This is one of those books you must have in your library. This book should be a requirement for students in grade school. There is no other book better for time management. No matter what your current age, or walk in life, check out this book today.

brian tracy has simply and profoundly described how we can drastically reduce our stress levels while at the same time increasing our quality of output at work so we can spend bigger quantities of time with our loved ones, thanks so much Mr. Tracy 😎

Great info for business that can also work for most other parts of your life as well.
Thank you Brian
Practical, excellent ideas about time and productivity management - so much more than just procrastination! Wish I'd discovered this book a decade ago...
"Loved this book very easy to listen to"
