REVIEW: EAT THAT FROG by Brian Tracy
“Eat That Frog” was written by Brian Tracy, who even though came from an unsuccessful background, took up the challenges of life and made it work out for him. He shares his experiences in this book on how to overcome life’s unlimited challenges as they come and how to make them work for you. The “frog” in the book represents the tasks or challenges ahead of us. It could be work related or personal. The author identified the fact that we may not accomplish all the tasks or goals that we set out to do. Stop trying to focus on how to manage your time and starting planning on how to be productive. There will be no limit to what you can accomplish when you learn how to “Eat That Frog!” When given a frog to eat, most of us may be reluctant about doing that. That is just the way feel when we have a major task ahead of us to accomplish. As a result it leads to procrastination. There are ways to eat that frog: You can dissect it; Marinate it and; Fry it. That way it becomes a delicious frog. This is how your tasks should be carried out; instead of procrastinating, break it down in terms of priority and solve them in that order. Brian quotes in his book that: “If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first." Galileo once wrote, “You cannot teach a person something he does not already know; you can only bring what he does know to his awareness.” In my next blog, I will explain the methods and techniques that you learn and apply to your daily schedule over and over until they become habits; you will alter the course of your life in a very positive way. Eat that frog!
