"If you eat a live frog the very first thing each morning,
you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably
the worst thing you'll do all day"
After visiting with Levonne the other day, I was looking thru the titles of "self improvement" ebooks available from the library, looking for one she was reading, when I came across a book called "Eat That Frog."
I had to check it out. The title caught me!
Like most self improvement books it had some good points, but also was a bit extreme. It talks about making lists and setting priorities as a way of getting things done. The "frog" is your biggest, hardest task. the book tells you to do that first and not procrastinate.
Anyone who has read this blog for any time, knows I keep "To Do" lists regularly. I often set goals on what I want to accomplish on a day to day and month to month basis.
I keep it in pencil, so if I don't get something done, I can erase it!
If something is important enough, it will get done, eventually.
My approach is different!
I like to eat animal crackers,
with frosting and sprinkles,
and let the frogs hop away!
Yes, I procrastinate. I nibble away at my tasks, a little at a time. He who finishes first does not necessarily win. She who walks in the sunshine and sees the birds, does!
Life is too short to eat frogs!
