Description

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 those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Eat That Frog! shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively.

In this fully revised and updated edition, Tracy adds two new chapters. The first explains how you can use technology to remind yourself of what is most important and protect yourself from what is least important. The second offers advice for maintaining focus in our era of constant distractions, electronic and otherwise. But one thing remains unchanged: Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done - today!

Commentaires

"Besides displaying [Tracy's] inimitable tone and impeccable pacing, the audio is another showcase for his palpable optimism about individual possibilities. The sound of Tracy's voice doesn't just bring his ideas - it makes you want to put them into action." ( AudioFile)

I was a little disappointed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This was book was recommended by several people and I found it was a bit of a let down. I was expecting a book that truly changed how I thought but I felt like the author would tell you one thing, thing tell you to do something else that seem to counter what he just told you.

What was most disappointing about Brian Tracy’s story?

it seemed inconsistant with his message

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Tracy?

he was ok just boring

Did Eat That Frog! inspire you to do anything?

I can save you time and money. The best lesson in this book is: Do the thing that you really don't want to do first and the rest of the day will be easier

Repeated Old Material

This material has been repeated EXACTLY from previous programs by Brian Tracy for the last 25 years. There is NOTHING new here. You have to plan and set goals, Use the 80/20 rule, etc. It's getting ridiculous how this author keeps repackaging the same material and reselling it. If you have any of his other programs on business or personal development, save your money and pass this by.

Sorry - Not Good on Audio

Maybe this is better read...but trying to listen to it while driving is not good because it will put you to sleep! For a motivational speaker, Brian Tracy reading his book is dead boring. Content is a lot of what you should do's...not much motivation. I didn't even make it through the first chapter.

Good message. Very repetative

Here's two hours in a nutshell - prioritize your work on paper and do the hardest work with the most business value first... in other words, it your frog and it will change your life. Say it 16,846 different ways and you have Eat That Frog! In fairness, it really is a good message and there are some decent exercises to help you determine what work is the most valuable work (if you can endure the repetition).

Not only procrastination

Though the summary tells that the book is on "overcoming procrastination", it provides more than that. Centered to "procrastination", Brian Tracy summarizes all his productivity tips in 21 titles. It's my fifth audiobook of Tracy and this one also succeeded to bring me new ideas. I highly recommend it.

Couldn't Finish...

This was one of the shortest books I've downloaded in a long time and yet I couldn't complete the book. The premise of the book was too simple. Essentially, it's to identify what you look forward to least and yet is most important and get it done first thing in the morning. To me that's an article in "Inc." or "Fast Company" magazines, not a book.

Same old, same old

If you have already read David Allen's Getting Things Done, then you will find very little new information. On top of that the content is not nearly as well organized as David Allen. However, if you are new to time management and need a kickstart, this may be a good starting point for you.

one new idea

I thought the main new idea, to me, in this book was the concept of doing the thing that could make the biggest difference FIRST THING. All the other advice about planning was too much for me. I don't want my entire life planned out in advance. However if you, like me, are a procrastinator, try picking the thing that will make the most difference toward your goals each day and do it. I tend to do a bunch of easy, probably less productive things before I tackle the one I've been dreading. I didn't need to listen to the whole book to get the concept.

Nothing special

Not any groundbreaking discoveries here. Just: "Acconplsh your biggest task first," repeated over and over throughout the entire book, with some very obvious self help tips sprinkled in along the way.

Things I already knew

Struggled to finish. Most of the information in the book were things that I already knew, just hadn't bothered to implement on a more consistent basis.

Ein weiteres Highlight von Brian Tracy

Zum Inhalt:
Die Kunst, den täglichen Frust zu überwinden und gezielt und strukturiert mit dem Schwierigen / den schwierigen Aufgaben zu beginnen, bringt Brian Tracy in diesem Hörbuch dem Leser nahe. Diese Vorgehensweise hat folgende Vorteile:
- sie motiviert, denn wenn man mit einer schwierigen oder dämlichen Aufgabe anfängt und sie erledigt, kann man sicher sein, dass dies der schlimmste Teil des Tages war;
- sie erzieht, denn man läuft nicht mehr vor der Arbeitszeit oder vor bestimmten Aufgaben weg, wenn man sieht, dass man diese Aufgaben schon einmal bewältigt hat;
- und erleichtert die tägliche Arbeit, denn man fühlt sich nach diesen schwer auf dem Herzen liegenden Aufgaben erleichtert und erfrischt und ist erstaunt, wie viel Zeit danach immer noch für Aufgaben bleibt, die viel schöner sind.
Insofern ein weiteres Highlight, welches in keiner Bibliothek eines Abonnenten fehlen sollte.

Zum Autor:
Es ist natürlich immer eine Frage, ob man den Autor vom Stil her mag. Doch wenn einem Brian Tracy, dieser positive und motivierende Mensch, entgegen kommt, kann man meiner Ansicht nach nicht anders als gespannt und lachend zuhören.

Dies ist eines von vielen motivational and personal development Hörbüchern in meiner Sammlung und es ist definitiv wieder eines zum weiterempfehlen.

Kompakte Produktivitätsberatung

Pro:
* viele sinnvolle Ratschläge zur Bewältigung der wirklich wichtigen Aufgaben
* kompakt, ohne Ausschweifungen und Wiederholungen

Kontra:
* haben andere ähnlich auch geschrieben (Drucker, Allen, Covey)
* Oberlehrerhaft, ein richtiger Sprecher wäre wünschenswert

Alternativen:
* Getting Things Done (praxisnäher)
* 7 Habits (umfassender)

highly motivating

Not only a brief summary of the best time and project management strategies, but also filled with real life situations and examples how to get things done. Motivation vs procrastination.

super

Das Buch ist toll. Es hat auch viele Ähnlichkeiten mit Ideen von der Secret und auch anderen, die ähnlich schreiben. Hauptsache ist, dass es funktioniert. Obwohl ich einiges davon schon von anderen gelesen hatte, war es sehr erfrischend und gut.
