I’ve recently become acquainted with the work of inspirational and motivational writer, Brian Tracy. Tracy is recognized as the top sales training and personal success authority in the world today. He has authored more than 60 books and has produced more than 500 audio and video learning programs on sales, management, business success and personal development. His many titles include Just Shut Up and Do It!: 7 Steps to Conquer Your Goals; Time Management; and my personal favorite Eat that Frog! 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time.
Let’s face it- we’ve become a world of procrastinators because we’re overcommitted and super busy. But, Brian Tracy suggests that some of our procrastination is due to avoiding the big, ugly tasks we just don’t want to face. Feelings of dread and anxiety makes us less productive. If we just take care of the phone call we don’t want to make, or write the letter we’re trying to avoid, or have the conversation with that problem employee we’ve afraid to tackle, in other words “eat the frog” first thing every day, we’ll be free mentally and emotionally to concentrate on more palatable tasks.
So what big, ugly frog is sitting on your plate? And what are you going to do about it?
