Eat The Frog


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Whenever I have something unpleasant or unwanted to do, I just remind myself to "eat the frog." If you were to start each day by eating a frog, nothing any worse could happen to you during that day. So when you are dreading something, just go ahead and eat the frog (get that task out of the way)! Things will be looking up after that for sure!

    I will try this! My "frog" is my vitamins. I have trouble swallowing pills and I hate to take my vitamins, so I put it off all day and then "forget" to take them. Good advice. Ree-deep!

    As a teacher, I try to "eat my toads for breakfast"--that is get odious tasks like a mound of paperwork done first thing. It makes facing the rest of the day easier. It was fun for me to see your comment here.

    My daughter encouraged me to get this book and read it after learning about it in marketing class. Consider it a good life lesson.

    Wow. I can honestly say this is a phrase I haven't heard before! "Eat the frog, baby! Yeah!" It made me laugh! :)
