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 they get done.

There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using 'eat that frog' as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day - the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also probably the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life - Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You'll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done.

Bestselling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. In this fully revised and updated second edition, he provides brand new information on how to keep technology from dominating your time. He details twenty-one practical and doable steps that will help you stop procrastinating and get more of the important tasks done - today!

Although this book is geared for leadership/management people, I found this just as valuable me as a retired person. It had some chapters that gave me some glimpse to my own shortcomings that when implemented will add purpose and value to my day. Read full review

This is a short but valuable book. The concepts covered are important and well stated. I will try to apply them to my life. Most concepts are simple and perhaps are logical but often not followed. I strongly recommend this book. Read full review
