If you are like most people today, you are overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time with which to do it in!
Everyday you struggle to get caught up, new tasks and responsibilities keep piling up...and because of this, you feel as though you will never get caught up. You may even begin to feel like you will always be behind in some of your tasks and duties no matter what you do.
For this reason ...your ability to effectively select your most important task, at a given moment of the day, and get it completed quickly and efficiently ...may well be the one skill you posses which will have more positive impact on your success than any other!
An average person who develops the habit of setting clear priorities and getting them done quickly will eat the lunch of a "genius" who just talks the talk!
Mark Twain once said "If the first thing you had to do each day was eat a live frog...you could go through the remainder of the day knowing for certain nothing worse will happen to you that day".
Your "FROG" may not be your biggest, most important task ...it could be the one you dread the most ...A phone call to a Seller who you have neglected to call for weeks ...A call to a Buyer with bad news about a rejected loan ... Or it could be the things you procrastinate on like, prospect calls, writing personal notes, or doing some face to face pop-by visits... any of these tasks could be "your frog".
One more tip...If you really had to eat a live frog ...sitting around all day worrying about it would only raise the level of anxiety and stress.
Eat your frog early and then free up your mind for the rest of the day ...And if you have to eat 2 frogs that day ...Eat the ugliest one first!
