Frog Spotting

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Mark Twain said this, “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”

I never heard this. Imagine the look on my face when my boss said this to me this afternoon. My response was, "Heh?" He explained it meant to do the worst thing first. I thought that was pretty good advice. Then I googled "eating frogs" because, why not? There is a great 3 minute read on motivation and eating frogs. It even has a frog spotting technique for identifying your personal frogs. https://blog.noisli.com/what-i

It's a great little read and I can see right now how it applies to me and exercise. Perhaps I can make this line of thinking work for me.

    I HAVE heard "Eat a frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you all day", but I'd never heard that specific Mark Twain quote!

    I have heard this advice a lot - to tackle the hardest task first and get it out of the way. It works for me.
