Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy

Wednesday, 2 April 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Non-Fiction: Self-improvement. Audio from Audio Partner’s Publisher’s Corporation. Published in 2007. 2 hours and 40 minutes. Read by Brian Tracy. “Borrowed” from Steve’s audio library.

I don’t know that I would have decided to listen to this audio book except for the fact that Steve said he thought it looked interesting. It’s a very short book, but I think it offers some very good insights into time management. The book is really directed at managing your time at work for the most part, but the ideas presented can easily be translated into good sense for time management outside of paid work as well. I did notice that many of the reviewers on Audible.com said that the book is mostly just rehashing things that Brian Tracy has taught in other venues. So, if you’ve heard or read him before then this book probably is not worth your time. If you haven’t, it has some good principles to think about and try to implement in your life.

Publisher’s summary:
There’s an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that it’s probably the worst thing you’ll do all day. Using “eat that frog” as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You’ll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done.

In his trademark high-energy style, acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He reminds us: “The purpose of time-management skills, of eating that frog, and getting more done in less time, is to enable you to spend more ‘face time’ with the people you care about, doing the things that give you the greatest amount of joy in life.”
