Eat your frog in the morning

leave a comment »

This week I had the pleasure of reading Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog!, one of the best productivity shorts I’ve ever read. I’m not that into reading self-help books, but I do enjoy reading short ones on how to improve personal productivity.

The book isn’t fresh (2002 vintage) but it does cover a lot of aspects in a funny way, starting from the title and ending with the chapter quotes.

One example of a funny parallel is the one that gave the book it’s name:
“If the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long!”

You can find it on Amazon (Eat that frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time), I found mine in a mall bookstore I buy my SF books from and managed to read two-three chapters a day on my way to work.
