Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time
by Brian Tracy (Author)
The legendary Eat That Frog! (more than 1.5 million copies sold worldwide and translated into 42 languages) will change your life. Successful people don’t try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure they get done.
The 80/20 rule, Pareto principle, says that 20 percent of the time you invest in something will produce 80 percent of the results. Brian Tracy suggests to use the “A-B-C-D-E” method to simply grouping your tasks to be done by priority in addition to by due date.
One key way to avoid procrastination is to focus on “single handle”. When you first pick up a smaller project (A-1), don’t put it down until it’s completely finished. After that do next A-2, A-3.
If you’re really committed to cutting procrastination out of your life, Eat That Frog! is one of the best books you must read.
