#371 Eat that Frog

The Secret Ingredient for a Great Day

A few +1s ago, we mentioned one of Brian Tracy’s books called Eat that Frog.

“Eat that Frog”?

Yah. Eat it. First thing in the morning. Before you do anything else. Nom nom nom.

Basic idea: If the worst thing you have to do in a day is eat a frog, and you eat that frog first thing in the morning, the rest of your day goes downhill from there, eh? (Hah.)

Putting a positive spin on it, if you’ve decided what your MOST IMPORTANT thing is and you do THAT first thing in the day, it’s really hard to have a bad day.

Which is why I’m so adamant about keeping our wi-fi unplugged in the morning and starting our days (all 365 of them per year if you’re like me and/or Steven King) being CREATIVE before we’re REACTIVE.

Every. Single. Day.

Accrete a little more Deep Work mojo.

Every. Single. Day.

Eat the frog. (Or, perhaps just invite your muse-frog to the party and high five it.)

First thing. Every. Single. Day.

Today’s +1: How’s your frog?

Hope you guys have an awesome day! 🐸
