Publisher's Summary

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Eat That Frog! shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively.
In this fully revised and updated edition, Tracy adds two new chapters. The first explains how you can use technology to remind yourself of what is most important and protect yourself from what is least important. The second offers advice for maintaining focus in our era of constant distractions, electronic and otherwise. But one thing remains unchanged: Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done - today!

Critic Reviews

"Besides displaying [Tracy's] inimitable tone and impeccable pacing, the audio is another showcase for his palpable optimism about individual possibilities. The sound of Tracy's voice doesn't just bring his ideas - it makes you want to put them into action." ( AudioFile)

I was a little disappointed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This was book was recommended by several people and I found it was a bit of a let down. I was expecting a book that truly changed how I thought but I felt like the author would tell you one thing, thing tell you to do something else that seem to counter what he just told you.

What was most disappointing about Brian Tracy’s story?

it seemed inconsistant with his message

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Tracy?

he was ok just boring

Did Eat That Frog! inspire you to do anything?

I can save you time and money. The best lesson in this book is: Do the thing that you really don't want to do first and the rest of the day will be easier

Very Basic

I like the exercises he gives, sometimes. Not all the time are they be fresh thoughts. I've met Brian, I appreciate his much earlier works. What's a bummer is there is a lot of repetition. I don't have a lot of time do reporting isn't Very helpful to me.

How to Write a List

Any additional comments?

Attracted by the title, I was hopeful to learn new tips in time management, planning my day and grasping opportunity. I listened, and I listened. Past road works, past traffic jams, past the M6 motorway at rush hour...I tuned in hoping for the golden chalice, the moment that would inspire me. I have to admit I gave in 10 minutes or so before the end.

In a nutshell I've learned :
1. You should write lists (yep, solid advice but hardly ground breaking?)
2. Prioritise the items on your list (erm, yes, got that bit too)
3. Do the biggest things first.

Perhaps my opinion on this book has been influenced by the fact I've listened in straight after finishing The Success Factors by Jack Canfield (get it!), and unfortunately with my mind buzzing with lots of new ideas, this one barely made the grade.

On the positive side it's nicely narrated and the voice and tone are pleasant to listen to, I just wish it had lived up to the promising title. On the Snog / Marry / Avoid list this book wouldn't get past the first date I'm afraid. There are far more comprehensive and inspiring books available, this has taught me not to be lured by an attractive cover.

Work focused time management advice

Useful tips but one size fits all approach somewhat grating - very business world orientated. I will however eat more frogs.

Very Practical and change begins from day one.

Brian has a very lucid way of saying important stuff in very few words. You can make plenty of sticky notes for your bathroom mirror from his one liners.
