Quick tip that made my day today. So I had been procrastinating on a task which wasn’t “important” but I had to get it done. Also, I knew that it would easily take up 5-6 hours of my day. So after successfully putting it off for 3-4 days, I had to eat the frog.
I was reminded of this 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.”
The frog in this case, is that task on your to-do list which you don’t want to do. The task you’ve been putting off for a while. So do yourself a favor & eat the frog first thing in the morning. Gobble it up. Do that task first.
There could be a ton of reasons why you want to put it off even more. Is it too boring? Too tough? It’ll take too long?
Nevertheless, eating “the frog” first thing in the morning will set your second half for better stuff & you’ll also have the confidence from knocking the god damn frog out.
