Eat That Frog

There’s an old saying that says … “If the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day!”

Brian Tracy says your “frog” should be the most difficult item on your things to do list, the one you’re most likely to procrastinate; because, if you eat that first, it’ll give you energy and momentum for the rest of the day. But, if you don’t … and let him sit there on the plate and stare at you while you do a hundred unimportant things, it can drain your energy and you won’t even know it.

And those are our Words for the Week.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: If God is the author, trust Him with the end of the story!

    Tried eating two frogs today – one jumped out the pot and ran away and may/may not be captured before time to say “try, again, tomorrow” – sigh – some frogs are just easier to eat for breakfast and some defy being ready for the evening meal – :D. Nearly time to confess to the need to ‘sleep on it’ to figure it out… πŸ˜€


  2. “Eat that frog!” is metaphor
    for doing hard things first,
    but one really can’t ignore
    that’s a frog’s not really worst.
    Living in the bush I learned
    to eat what came along.
    The edible could not be spurned
    and my stomach grew quite strong.
    I think it best I don’t describe
    the things that made the menu,
    nor that which I did imbibe
    in that un-gourmand-ed venue.
    But nothing’s bad, and nothing’s risky
    in the face of too much whiskey.
