Time is your most precious resource. It is the most valuable thing you have. It is perishable, it is irreplaceable, and it cannot be saved. ~ Brian Tracy
Have you heard or read the book Eat that Frog by Brian Tracy? It’s a book written for people wanting to make the most of fleeting time. A funny title, right? It is based on an old Mark Twain quote.
If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first.
Back in the late 1800s, Twain dealt with many of the same things we face today. There are things we love to do and things we don’t.
The goal is to get all things done - even eating the frogs!
Allow me to summarize some of the key takeaways.
There are three main points I’m implementing now to improve my time management skills. Best of all, they're working!
Okay. Enough about me. What about you!? What are your frogs?
I think examples can help.
Let’s say you love the idea of planning out your fall lessons now so summer is stress-free but actually planning those lessons IS the frog!
No problem. Try this.
Just applying these three activities to your life will make a change in how you manage your time.
Your productivity will increase.
And, you’ll go on improving your life in so many ways.
I sincerely hope!
And, yes, of course I want to help. Here is a year of writing lessons, a great book, and an educational podcast you may enjoy. Just click on the images for the direct link.
