Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time I finished this book a couple of days ago.and I wanted to put a review in right away to get it in at the top of the week, but there was the Super bowl, then Monday I had to make dog food (you did read that correctly), last night Justified was on..and that needs your full attention This morning I had class for my Ballot Judge position for the primary March 6 (that promises to be a clusterf#¥k my friends) Now I'm stuck at work, and have to type this out on my IPad which is not the fastest way to type, so that's annoying Customers keep coming up, wanting to buy something..the nerve Like majority of the human race, I have some procrastination issues, So I thought I'd pickup the classic, but unfortunately named, Eat That Frog for some guidance This book is full of great common sense tools to get yourself to do what you'd rather not do Basically what you need to do is make lists On the top of that list you put the thing you would rather avoid doing the most This would be your Frog Then do that thing first, or eat that frogthen work your way down that list from the next slightly smaller, less ugly frog, down to prime rib, Oreos, tacos and cherry pie at the end of the list, if you could ever get there.This book is geared toward the work environment, specificity office type work, which is not what I do I draw people for a living (from life), so when the author wrote about picking out the most difficult thing you would all day to do first, I imagined picking out the screaming two year old from the crowd first, followed by the stumbleing drunkect.So, I do plan to eat some frogs right after I beat a few people on Words With Friends. Think on paper.1 Write down your goals, set deadlines, list steps to achieve goals, organize steps into a plan by priority and sequence, do something every day on your highestimpact goal.Do now: list 10 goals Pick your highestimpact goal, set a deadline, make a plan, take action.2 Make a master list of everything you want to do, make a list for the coming month, make a list for the coming week and for the next day When planning a project, list all the steps and organize them by priority and sequence.Do now: list everything to be done in the next 24 hours, list all projects For each goal/project, prioritize and sequence the tasks involved.3 Work on the 20% of the tasks that contribute to high value results first Don't clear up small tasks first Do now: list key goals, activities, projects, responsibilities Decide which 20% of these tasks will contribute 80% of results (Pareto principle).4 Think long term: 5, 10, 20 years 'The law of Forced Efficiency says that There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.' What are my highest value activities? What can I and only I do that will make a real difference? What is the most valuable use of my time right now?Do now: Work on the most valuable task right now.5 Outsource, delegate, eliminate Do now: Abandon activities that aren't contributing to goals.6 ABCDE tasks: A tasks are high priority, B tasks must be done eventually, C tasks might be nice, D tasks can be delegated, E tasks should be eliminated.Do now: go through your list of tasks and label them ABCDE.7 key result areas of management are planning, organizing, staffing, delegating, supervising, measuring, and reporting.key result areas of sales are prospecting, building rapport and trust, identifying needs, presenting persuasively, answering objections, closing the sale, and getting resales and referrals.Do now: Determine your key result areas Grade your performance in each area Make a plan to improve in the areas where you're worst.8 List the three most important goals in: career, family, financial, health, development, social/community, problems/concerns Spend quality time at work and quantity time at home.Do now: work when you're working9 Prepare your workspace and get on with the job.Do now: clean your desk.10 Take it one step at a time.Do now: select a goal you've been procrastinating on, list the steps, and do one.11 Never stop learning Read in your field one hour each day Take courses and seminars Listen to audio programs in your car Do now: identify key skills that you need to learn and make a plan to learn one.12 What are you good at? What do you do easily and well that is difficult for other people? Looking back at your career, what has been most responsible for your success in life and work to date? What have been the most significant frogs you have eaten in the past? What is it that you do that gets you the most compliments and praise from other people? What do you do that positively affects the work and performance of other peoplethan anything else?Do now: focus your plans so that you're doing the things you're best at.13 Identify what is holding you back, what is the limiting factor Do now: Determine the constraint that is most impeding your progress toward your most important goal.14 Create your own deadlines.15 Take care of your health:sleep, eating, exercise.16 Practice positive self talk Positive mental attitude: look for the good in every situation, 'difficulties come not to obstruct but to instruct,' look for the solution to every problem, think and talk continually about your goals Do now: control your thoughts, accept responsibility for what happens to you, don't criticize or blame others, focus forward.17 Don't become addicted to technology Do now: Turn off technology for one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon Take a day off each week from keeping in touch with the world through technology.18 Break down tasks in order to feel good about making progress Salami: outline a task in detail and complete a slice Swiss cheese: work for 510 minutes on a task 19 Schedule blocks of time and eliminate distractions 20 Build up momentum as you work fast Create your own sense of urgency Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! or Back to work! Back to work! Back to work!Do now: When you are given a task or responsibility, take care of it quickly and report back fast.21 Don't be stopping and starting your task. I read this book and I think its not bad It is full of useful tools and tips to get you to stop procrastinating But there are better books out there The best book I've read on this topic is the Procrastination Elimination Method by John Isaac It's not really famous. its like a hidden gem It addresses the core experiences and perceptions that cause procrastination to begin with.I give 3 stars to Eat That Frog because the author seems to have put in a lot of effort. Nothing revolutionary, but a good (and quick) recap of the things we need to do to get stuff done.The key premise is that if we ate a live frog first thing in the morning, everything else would be easy compared to that It's a good reminder to concentrate on the most important task instead of getting mired down in the smaller, unimportant ones.The author gives 21 steps to getting things done:01 Set the table (spend some time writing out your goals for year, month and week) Prioritize those and concentrate on the most important ones.02 Plan your day in advance (on paper).03 80/20 rule: 20% of your work will constitue 80% of your acheivements Concentrate on that 20%.04 Consider the consequences of what you choose to work on.05 ABCDE method Organize your tasks by value (a,b,c) and priority (1,2,3).06 Focus on key result areas.07 Obey the law of forced efficiency.08 Prepare thoroughly The 6Ps: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance If you're Rob Lowe you can use the 7Ps ;p.09 Do your homework! If you're not improving, you're getting worse.10 Leverage your talents.11 Identify your key constraints.12 Take it one barrel at a time (baby steps).13 Put pressure on yourself.14 Maximize personal powers Select the key times of the day when you are most productive and work on your tasks at those times.15 Motivate yourself (be your own cheerleader).16 Practice creative procrastination You're not going to be able to get everything done so put off the less important tasks.17 Do the most difficult task first (eat that frog).18 Slice and dice your tasks Break your tasks into smaller,manageable chunks.19 Create large blocks of time to get your work done.20 Develop a sense of urgency.21 Singlehandle every task. This book may be better for doers than thinkers I read it about a year ago, and really liked it A lot It gave me a good kick start to getting things done But then procrastination crept back, and the frog effect wore off I'm a rightbrain thinker, so I probably should have just tattooed the saying on the back of my hand I've just started reading The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying GuiltFree Play by Neil Fiore, and it's a better fit for me Eat That Frog is excellent, but it didn't sufficiently address the reasoning behind my not getting stuff done That is: fear of failure, a terrible fear of being criticized for everything I do (geez, even when I grind my coffee I can hear my Dad's voice: You need to grind those beans a little finer/coarser), fear of doing something so well that I'll never be able to replicate the job, fear that if I complete this task that I'll then have to move on to that hideous task Yeah, so I'm just doing a little selfanalysis on myself, and once that's done I'll be perfect, and I'll probably reread this book on occasion just to keep me on track. The whole book boils down to do the hardest task first and make checklists Not exactly rocket science, but I gotta admit I'm finding myself using the catchy phrase Eat That Frog! as a reminder to stop putting off daunting tasks And I love checklists Since I'm currently in a moment of high stress time management, it's exactly what I needed to hear To really save time, listen to the audio version It's unabridged and only 2.5 hours.
