Boss Babes don’t kiss frogs – we EAT frogs!
Okay, literally that’s super gross. I don’t even want to think about the potential risks that entails! However, eating the frog is another way of saying “getting shit done.” Brian Tracy wrote a book on this. I recommend if you need some more tips to stomaching your frogs.
Every day you have a to-do list. If not, you should. Many days, there’s that one big item you know you have to finish but you don’t want to because you know it will be difficult and take more time and effort than everything else on the to-do list. You check off all the easy tasks first. You might even make up tasks just to have that sense of accomplishment that comes from a check mark.
However, that is a bad habit you’re going to eradicate starting right now.
That hardest task of the day? Consider that the FROG. Don’t procrastinate, eat that frog first thing in the morning. Make it the first thing you get done in the day. That way, the most important task will be done with. And, you’re more likely to be more efficient and successful if you get it done first, the right way. This will lead to so much more time for extra goals to be accomplished.
A couple of tips on digesting frogs:
1. Cut Your Frog Up
Sometimes it’s best to eat a couple of smaller frogs. Split up your work so that it’s less daunting. If you have one big goal, that’s Gucci! Just divide the goal into approachable tasks so that you can add them to your to-do list.
2. Make sure that you aren’t eating a frog while simultaneously trying to drink a porcupine.
Focus your time on energy one ONE lone task at a time and avoid multitasking. Efficiency equals time, and Boss Babes can never have enough time.
Yeah, that frog might be difficult to swallow at first, but once it’s done, it’s done. Let’s get to work.
