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

By Bennet Owuonda aka Chief

I have a feeling that I failed to follow the instructions in this book. After receiving my free copy from Nuria Store, I read a few chapters and stopped. This is because I got distracted (which goes against the concept of this book). I picked it back up few months later and finished it.

Eat your big and ugliest frog first, as awful and awkward as it may sound, if you put it into practical use, the end product of whatever you started would be extremely good.

The book is on point and offers its main sole purpose practical advice. This book is aimed at any working professional with tips and tricks to improve your productivity and do good in life in general.

Brian, in his book, insists on eating the big ugly frog first, meaning ‘doing the tough, ugly work which you have been avoiding before finishing off the other uncomplicated tasks’.

This was an apt read from, cause these days I wake up early and do my daily chores in time just so I can remain doing less important things

I would recommend this book because it is a very basic collection of tips to beat procrastination. Geared very much toward sales and “business” people.

The downside was the repetition of some guidelines, like procrastination in every chapter, Brian really stressed the point, but to me it felt too much.

Maybe it is just me, I don’t like motivational books that much.
