I have been using a new menu for the last week. The only item on the menu is “Eat That Frog”. Yes…Just stop procrastinating and do what you dread. I read “Eat That Frog!” by Brian Tracy this past summer and it truly did motivate me, most of the time.
We took a family trip to the Smoky Mountain recently and I found some little green frogs with a bell inside. I bought one for everyone in the office and asked them to put the frog on their desk. We all had to admit that we had certain duties that we dreaded and we would procrastinate in getting them done. All of us began looking down and seeing the “little green frog” and it was a reminder to “eat that frog” the first thing each morning.
Sometime we will all just say we have to “eat that frog” today and dive into the project. I had been procrastinating on some jobs at home and I had to “eat that frog” at home also. You know…that drawer that needs organized, the closet that needs cleaned, organizing your home office, getting receipts ready for 2008 taxes (yuck). I have worked for several days over the last two days and most of my documents are ready for IRS. I “Ate That Frog” and I feel good.
