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!

The most to the point time Management book.

This book is so easy to finish yet requires one to grasp all the revealed time management skills in a short period of time. Finished it with x1.5 speed and found the flow flawless. Make sure you note the summary of all the points relative to you, so that you can review the findings of this book quickly.

Very helpful! 5/5

Beneficial to work ethic

This book is well written for motivation. Btian Tracy gives many methods to help oneself overcome procrastination. I appreciate the salami and swiss cheese method. I also like how he presents question as to what is holding you back and such that makes people think about what they want and why they want it. I am thankful that I read this book.

Useful with some caveats

The book provides common sense and detailed useful advice on time management.
Psychological considerations are mostly flawed.
Relations with colleagues are undervalued.
There are some contradictions.
It is not true that anyone can learn anything.
Sometimes there is a salesman tone: the author sells his book as the definitive way to success and happiness.

I really found this book to be helpful. I wouldn’t have minded a more entertaining narrator. There were some points where I was interested but falling asleep lol. That being said I recommend this book to anybody trying to be more productive in life

Best book for success & procrastination

The book gives you tips and solutions to allow you to determine which tastks to do now and which you can delay or even not doing at all! It allows you to be a unsuccessful optimistic person who knows exactly how to do things right! It highlights the importance of planning your day, week, month, year, and even years ahead with your life goals.
Listening to the book author himself reading his own book, is something really different!! Out of this world!

Great content - Not the most engaging narration.

Brian Tracy is fantastic. This book is great for those out there like myself that would like to be more productive. I believe I already manage my time fairly well but Tracy gives you more insight into the best ways to get more done.

In writing this review, I am 'eating a frog' - Well, maybe a newt. But either way, I recognize my frogs from my tadpoles and my tadpoles from my newts much more clearly now and prioritize more effectively than prior to listening.

The narration is not to everybody's taste. I found Tracy's voice very, very dull unfortunately and I really did not enjoy the tone in which the book was delivered. There is little motivation in the delivery but huge amount in the content.

All in all a 3/5

Good listen. Could be shorter

I found plenty of gold nuggets in this listen. However, there was some repetition and it could have been made an hour shorter and still have got the same message across.

Great insights with a soft narration

The overall content of this book is powerful and I feel there are some great ideas I can implement. The narration is a in a really soft tone and I often had to turn the volume up to hear it. Saying this, it is worth it as I feel the knowledge shared is useful.

Changed the way I look at my work!

I'm still struggling to be disciplined and eat my frog but I'm a lot more conscious about what I need to do to change so expecting some improvement in my productivity and career soon. When I did get to eat my frog, the boost in confidence was significant, so I know I just need to keep on practising using all the tips given. I'm on to listening to more books from Brian Tracy now to keep the motivation.
