Publisher's Summary

It’s time to stop procrastinating and get more of the important things done! After all, successful people don’t try to do everything. They focus on their most important tasks and get those 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. The core of what is vital to effective time management is: decision, discipline, and determination. And 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.

This life-changing book will ensure that you get more of your important tasks done today.

Good

I have listened to this book three time now and I love it.I feel like I’m slowly chipping away at my goals and without any doubt I will achieve them. This is a fantastic book.

Love this book

I have listened to this book three time now and I love it. I have gotten so much more achieved each day and feel a sense of empowerment. After writing my To Do list every evening and then upon awaking in the morning I feel like I bounce out of bed and I’m so productive. I feel like I’m slowly chipping away at my goals and without any doubt I will achieve them. This is a fantastic book.

Good short guide for task prioritising

21 tips on how to manage tasks and prioritise.
Good review as part of the self help journey.

Narration was dryer and more dull than the contant itself - i do not recommend.

Good tactics, but reader is too soothing

I'll use many of the tactics presented. The book is short enough that I'll listen again in the future after making habits of a handful. I also bought the workbook supplement. the reader was way too mellow for my liking. it can put you to sleep. I would have liked a more enthusiastically and motivational reader.

Terrible Narration

Timeless tactics delivered by the wrong person. The task of narration should have been outsourced to a professional.

A condensed version of Tracy's better works.

EAT THAT FROG was a good audio filled with great principles for achievement and Self-discipline and Motivation but it once again is a summary of his better audiobooks such as NO EXCUSES: THE POWER OF SELF DISCIPLINE and THE ULTIMATE GOALS PROGRAM, two works which indeed are 5 Star Classics. This audiobook is a great introduction to the more advanced, in-depth audiobooks of Brian Tracy, especially for someone who never listened to him before. And EAT THAT FROG is great for us Brian Tracy fans who might not have 6, 7, 8 or 13 hours to listen to his Classic unabridged material like THE UNIVERSAL LAWS OF SUCCESS AND ACHIEVEMENT or MAXIMUM ACHIEVEMENT. Therefore, this audiobook is great if you need to learn something useful and profound and necessary while going to sleep or cleaning the house/apt. or while on a long drive, etc. As the saying goes "An idle mind is the Devil's Workshop" so "Selah" and constantly listen to this relatively brief yet very good audio recording of Brian Tracy!

Hard Pass

Struggled to get through. Person reading did not have a pleasant voice to listen to but worse of all was that this was just a regurgitation of all the one liners they've ever heard about being more productive or goal oriented. It lacked depth and I did not enjoy it. I'd listen to a Napoleon Hill book, which they reference a lot.

The 2nd edition is better.

This version has less passion and lacks the emphasis is some areas compared to the second edition. Unfortunately that better version isn't available on Audible at this time. The information is great, but the delivery of the information also matters.

Catchy title, shame about the contents

Nothing in this that's not been said before in much better books. Write a to do list, prioritise it, focus, turn off distractions, etc, etc.

Thought provoking

I’m late to this party! However, I’ll be eating some frogs and will definitely take some of these tips forwards. It repeats a little but I took that as a useful re enforcement of the key messages. Worth a listen.

excellent listen

For anyone who knows they could achieve more, this book is so thought provoking. How do you actually spend your spare time?

For the people happy to sit scrolling for a few hours a day, this probably isn't for you.

I will definitely be listening again in the near future.

Great book on how to get going and focus on important things

Great book on how to get going and focus on important things
The key thing is focus on the things that matter it’s about discipline and doing the things that contribute the most it’s better to be productive than busy spend time on that which matters
