Stop Procrastinating & Eat Your Frog
Author Jennifer Gerlock:
I recently made an impulse purchase on Audible that has completely reshaped the way that I work my life and career. It is called “Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time” by Brian Tracy. In the book the author covers topics that range from determining your priorities to delegating and eliminating tasks as well as the 80/20 rule and “eating your frog.” (Eww… I know. Not the best mental picture.)
If you struggle with getting it all done (and really, who doesn’t?) then I encourage you to make time in your schedule to read the book and try out his suggestions.
Some of the tips:
• Apply the “80/20 Rule” to everything: This was a huge revelation to me – Resist the temptation to clear up small things first. 20% of your activities account for 80% of your results. Always concentrate efforts on those top 20% activities.
• Maximize your personal powers: Identify the periods in which your mental and physical energy are at their highest. Structure your most important things to do around those times.
• Develop a sense of urgency: Make a habit of moving fast on your key tasks and you will become an action oriented person.
