Book Review: Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy
I admire the author of this book tremendously. Brian Tracy is a huge influence on my life and he has inspired me greatly on my personal growth journey. I have so many great things to say about him. I recommend Brian Tracy’s books to anyone who wants change their life for the better or simply for those people who want to learn and grow.
While I was doing some internet surfing one day, I stumbled across one of Brian Tracy’s videos. I really enjoyed his message and I started to look up the books that he has written. The first book that I came across was Eat That Frog; I wrote down the title and knew that I wanted to get my hands on a copy when I got the chance. A couple of months later, I was visiting a store that a frequented and I saw that two copies of this amazing book remained on the shelf. I recognized it immediately. I had not seen this book at that particular store before.I knew that if I didn’t get it right then, I might not have another chance to buy it. I purchased a copy and, after seeing my excitement on finding this book, a friend that I was with purchased the other copy.
I began reading it immediately and it opened my eyes to an entire new way of doing things and improving my productivity. For example, I have been fervently against technology for many years, I had a flip phone in the year 2016 because I despised the thought of constantly being glued to my phone and missing out on life going on around me. This book changed all of that for me. I remember reading that “technology can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. The key is to keep your relationship with technology under control.” I learned that technology is a great servant but a horrible master. After reading the portion of the book that discussed technology, I had a new approach to things. Now I use technology as a tool to be more effective and more efficient.
Eat That Frog’s Main Ideas and Themes
The title of this book is very catchy. It deals with prioritizing tasks. The main idea of the book is that your most important task of the day is your biggest ugliest frog and you must eat it. If the worst thing that you have to do all day is eat a live frog, it is better to get it over with quickly. Standing around looking at it and putting it off doesn’t make it any easier. When we put our biggest daily task first and work at it until it is complete, we can really make a lot of progress on being productive.
This book teaches you how to put your most important tasks first and it teaches you how to accomplish those tasks without letting the other ones distract you. The techniques in this book are proven and used by high performers. I have also put them to the test and they have worked wonders for me as well.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their performance in any field. These techniques work in the office, at home, for an author, entrepreneur, or really in any field. Please do yourself a favor and read this book and then immediately apply what you learn. I am confident that you won’t regret it.
