Flipped through this one. It contains solid advice, but nothing particularly original. Good to review when you need a kick in the pants. ( )

This book presented some interesting ideas, but really, a lot of them, to me at least, seem fairly common sense. I guess that's the beauty of the book--it presents simple ideas in a cohesive form. One of my biggest complaints is that I feel like the author never really answered the all-important question of "Why?" Overall, I think it's a pretty good place to start, but if you're interested in actually implementing some of the ideas, you might need to do a little more research and/or experimentation. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0340835044, Paperback)

There's an old saying that if the first thing you do in the morning is to eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Eat That Frog! takes this saying as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day - the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also probably the one that will have the greatest positive impact on your life. Bestselling author Brian Tracy shows how successful people don't try to do everything, but instead focus on the most important tasks. With three vital rules of effective personal time management: decision, discipline and determination, and twenty-one practical and doable steps to help you stop procrastinating, this book will appeal to anyone who wants to get more of those important tasks done - today!

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:25:29 -0400)

Brian Tracy gives the advice of doing the most difficult task first so that you can feel positive about yourself and move on to the other tasks of the day.
