Eat That Frog – Summary

Hello, all fantastic people and enthusiastic readers out there. Today I’ve come up with an exciting summary of a famous and best seller book “Eat That Frog” by a globally acclaimed author and motivational speaker Brian Tracy.

Eat That Frog summeryTo the first-time readers, let me give you a glimpse of who Brian Tracy is if you are not familiar with him and his work. He is one of the renowned Personal Development teachers in the world. He is a fantastic author and has written over 70 books, consulted over 1000 companies, addressed more than 5 million people in his more than 5000 seminars throughout the United States, Canada, and other 70 countries across the globe.

This book focuses on how to improve your productivity and will help you learn some of the significant strategies that will kick in and will motivate you to perform better every day.

This book is ideal for

 

  • Those who are interested in improving their productivity.
  • Those who are struggling with procrastination.
  • Those who are in search of some motivation to start with.

The author has mentioned four keys to attain the highest productivity and significant achievement as follows.

  • Prioritize Your Most Important Task.
  • Begin Promptly.
  • Work on it courageously.
  • Finish what you’ve started.

1. Prioritize Your Most Important Task:

To achieve your goal and complete every task you choose, the author wants you to consider the 80/20 rule, which is widely accepted as the Pareto principle. This principle states that during plenty of events in your life, around 80% of your result comes from the rest of 20% actions.

For instance, a survey suggests the following;

  • 80% of accidents happen because of 20% of reckless motorists
  • 80% of problems occur because of 20 % of the product flaws
  • 80% of profits come from 20% of your clients

Want a solution to this?

Prioritize. Prioritize. Prioritize.

Start prioritizing your activities in increasing order of their importance and always finish the most important task as a priority. Stop being busy and focus on things that matter the most to you.

“If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first. This is another way of saying that if you have two important tasks before you, start with the biggest, hardest, and most important task first.”

  • Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog.

2. Begin Promptly:

After choosing the most important task, begin working on it immediately. Don’t find an excuse for starting it from the next day or the other; it will only delay your success. Make it a habit of choosing the most important task and start working on it forthwith.

“The hardest part of any important task is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you seem to be naturally motivated to continue.”

  • Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog

3. Work On It Courageously:

Multi-tasking and Attention residue are considered as the two massive hindering factors to attain higher productivity.

By single-handedly working on your chosen task, you tend to eliminate the two significant productivity suckers mentioned above and can achieve your goal with greater efficiency. Working single-handedly gives you the power to focus entirely on your chosen task. It avoids the distraction, which will eventually lead you towards your goal by increasing your productivity and reducing the time taken to finish the task.

“Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. NAPOLEON HILL”

  • Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog.

4. Finish What You’ve Started:

Discipline is the stepping stone of achieving your goals and completing your tasks on time. You must discipline yourself to complete one chosen task that you’ve started.

Many people tend to get bore of the task they’ve started and abandoned it the moment they get uncomfortable. Never do that, I repeat, Never do that as it will get incredibly hard for you to get back to the task you’ve abandoned previously.

“The Key to Success is Action”

  • Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog

Final Thoughts:

People believe that everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by accident, neither success nor failure. Your success depends on doing certain and distinguishing things consistently.

It’s neither a miracle nor an accident. It’s nothing but a matter of cause and effect.

Hence, to achieve more success and lead a successful life, you must consider copying what most of the successful people do across the globe.

Learning is a lifelong process, and you must be committed to strive daily towards success and Eat That Frog in the breakfast every day.

“Rule: Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.”

  • Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog.

All the best for your journey towards success…
