Brian Tracy and The Joy Of Frog Eating

While we may not incorporate frogs into our menus, we all procrastinate.

Yes… /procrastination/ “putting off or delaying or deferring an action to a later time“, mainly because of Fear, Overwhelm, Perfectionism, or an interesting combination of two or all three of these factors.

What Is The Frog Eating Philosophy?

  1. “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!”
  2. “If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first!”
  3. “If you have to eat a live frog, it does not pay to sit and look at it for a very long time!”

Our frogs are our biggest, hardest, most tedious, frightful, yet most important task of the day.

How To Eat A Frog

  1. Make a list ~check it twice  ~ What are the most important issues you must take care of ?
  2. Prioritize your tasks based upon what brings you closer to your goals. Find your personal frogs first, then focus on career frogs.
  3. Eat The FROG by getting right to the task representing the MOST valuable use of your time.

As moms, we sometimes have overwhelming servings of  giant scary looking frogs. We can overcome procrastination by prioritizing and placing value on what we do with our time.

Why Eat A Frog?

Procrastination is  “attitude’s natural assassin” (William James, American psychologist and philosopher). Eating our frog is essential to keeping motivated because uncompleted tasks make us feel defeated and drain our energy. Sound familiar?

By developing a habit of intentionally eating our daily frog, we feel stronger, more productive, more confident, more successful, and HAPPIER!

Enough writing…I’m off to eat my frogwhile assuring my Vegan daughter that no frogs were harmed in the process.

Enjoy! * Bon Appetit! * Buen Provecho!
