Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy

Great book with some wonderful principles to apply today. There were a couple of principles, such as having multiple priorities that I found the approach to labeling by letters and numbers to become confusing and cumbersome after a while. It was a fairly quick read so there isn't too much to say about this one.

The author consistently reiterated that the most efficient way to tackle any type of work you are procrastinating on completing is in fact the one you should tackle first. In fact, he specifically advises that the larger the projects the more time you should spend putting in the effort with "eating" that frog first and then tackle the other smaller less important tasks later.

Tracy points out that the more time we spend on tasks that are non-essential like responding to or reading emails that has nothing to do with the task at hand is just a waste of time and then offers his method of how to tackle our laundry list of "to-do" items.

It seemed inefficient to advise his readers of how to tackle priorities based on labeling then by letters and numbers. It just seemed as though that in it of itself would lead a procrastinator like me to get caught up in the details of this and never end up looking at the frog or even remember that it exists.

Either way, this was not the best book for me on how to increase my productivity.
