About the Original Book
In his book, Brian Tracy helps readers understand the importance of setting clear goals, managing priorities and beginning each workday with the most important task. He emphasizes that to become effective, a person must write clear goals on paper, list all the tasks required to accomplish each goal and complete these tasks in their order of importance and sequence. The author concedes that everyone procrastinates, but effective people procrastinate only on trivial tasks. The ability to eat the ugliest frogs first (the most important tasks) is the mark of a high performer.

couldn't get past the intro, unbearable narration
honestly I've listened to some monotone narrations. while it might cause some to lose focus (usually not me), slow narration that doesn't inflect on punctuation correctly it's much worse. I wasn't able to even get through the intro. wow. can't comment on quality of the content which is unfortunate because I was really looking forward to it.
