Get More of the Important Things Done—Today!

There just isn’t enough time for everything on our to-do list—and there never will be. Successful people don’t try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get 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.

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.

But one thing remains unchanged: Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done—today!

Plenty of great ideas & suggestions on overcoming procrastination. Short, quick read. No idea why the hold time is so long. If you're too lazy to read the book, the biggest take-away is probably make a list of everything you need to get accomplished, understand you will not be able to finish everything, and just focus on the most important tasks and do those first.

I've read a few books on personal development and this one honed in on some ideas I had not heard before. Chapters are nice and short so you can read one and then put the technique into action immediately.

When will I learn to quit reading self-help books? I don't listen to good advice from friends, why do I borrow books from strangers to give me little lectures?

Excellent book... I wanted to read it to help me with my part-time coaching job and was pleasantly surprised at how much of it I could actually apply to my regular day-job, where procrastination becomes a big problem and a time-waster. Definitely worth checking out!

Sad but true, I meant to read this book years ago but never got around to it.
It was worth the wait, and has some good advice and helpful strategies.
