Eat the Frog

There’s a book called Eat the Frog by Brian Tracy.

I’ve never read it, but have heard several people reference the saying. The original quote comes from Mark Twain, “eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” Your ‘frog’ is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it.”

Maybe this is how we came to eat frog legs instead of the whole thing, but we all rather take the easy-street than blazing a trail. However, if you have the mindset that blazing the trail is better for you than going down the pavement, I believe most will do it. Doing the most important task first does set the tone of the day. Setting that tone does more than checking the box, but it reaffirms all the positive leadership characteristics.

Be the leader you need to be by eating the frog. Have that breakthrough every day.  Don’t settle for easy or average. Be exemplary!

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
