“If the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you can go through the rest of your day knowing that was probably the very worst thing that will happen to you the rest of your day.”~Brian Tracy
Your “frog” is your biggest, ugliest, perhaps most difficult and often most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on and keep pushing out into an unspecified future.
Chances as good that each and everyone of us are avoiding something; a doctor’s appointment, paying a bill, making a phone call, etc., There is undoubtedly a brutal task starring you in the face and often the irony is we only make these tasks seem larger and more difficult by putting them off.
“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of the uncompleted task” goes an old saying. And Lao Tzu advised, “Do the difficult things while they are easy and the great things while they are small.
For some of us the “Frog” is getting ourselves to the gym every other morning. So, the challenge for us is to stop thinking about it— and building it up— to look that ugly ‘frog’ square in the eyes and eat it knowing that the rest of our day will be relatively easy!
Listen in to hear more about frog eating and why the topic even came up. Enjoy the episode!
