It was more than 20 years ago Brain Tracey first released his book Eat That Frog! and more than a decade ago when I first read it and started applying the philosophy from it.
I have been incredibly busy during the last 2 months traveling to the other side of the world and back and juggling many personal and business tasks, and the principles for how to prioritise by importance to achieve goals have never been more important to me.
In simple terms a frog is not only a task you are likely to avoid, it’s one that’s going to have the biggest positive impact on your life. If we learn to face doing the things we feel uncomfortable with because they appear difficult and strenuous, and if we learn to do them first, the rewards are greater productivity, better success, and you’ll reach your aspirations more quickly.
In the book there are 21 core principles, I won’t go into them all in this article, however I wanted to share a few to help you build a structure and hopefully take something away to have more free productive time in your day.
