Summary

It’s time to stop procrastinating and get more of the important things done! After all, successful people don’t try to do everything. They focus on their most important tasks and get those done. They eat their frogs.

There’s an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re done with the worst thing you’ll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life.

Eat That Frog! shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively. The core of what is vital to effective time management is: decision, discipline, and determination. And in this fully revised and updated edition, Tracy adds two new chapters. The first explains how you can use technology to remind yourself of what is most important and protect yourself from what is least important. The second offers advice for maintaining focus in our era of constant distractions, electronic and otherwise.

This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done today.

Good tactics, but reader is too soothing

I'll use many of the tactics presented. The book is short enough that I'll listen again in the future after making habits of a handful. I also bought the workbook supplement. the reader was way too mellow for my liking. it can put you to sleep. I would have liked a more enthusiastically and motivational reader.

Terrible Narration

Timeless tactics delivered by the wrong person. The task of narration should have been outsourced to a professional.

This book was an eye opener ! I was having trouble balancing receiving my masters degree and juggling mom life. This book helped me bring a sense of order to my life. After reading this book, I was no longer overwhelmed and learned how to prioritize my work and home life! Incredible read!

Motivating...

...but more for a business person. Since I’m a housewife, some of it wasn’t really geared to me. I didn’t hate the narration as much as some reviewers, but it is not enjoyable. He’s got a strange accent (my best guess is Canadian?) and the weirdest sense of timing—pausing for a second in the middle of sentences. But it is somewhat motivating.

A great summary of getting the major task

A great summary of getting the major task that will provide importance to your life done.

Eat the biggest, ugliest frog first. And leave all the tadpoles in the pond.

Good tips, just that it could shorter than it already is , there is some repeat around here and there ..
