WHERE WE WILL REVIEW 1 chapter of Brian Tracey’s book, “Eat That Frog” each day in FABruary


The Cliff Notes from today’s reading:
“Chapter 18: 

One technique to use to cut big tasks down to size is the “salami slice” method.  Lay out the tasks in detail and then resolve to do just 1 slice of the job for the time being, like eating a roll of salami, just one slice at a time.


Deep within us all is an “compulsion for closure”.  Do you feel better or relieved once you’ve completed a task (big or small).  Endorphins are released, and the bigger the task the greater the feeling of accomplishment.  Develop that inner drive that motivates you to carry through to completion.


Another technique is “swiss cheesing” a task by resolving to work on the task for a specified period of time.  This may be just 5 or 10 minutes, then stop and do something else.  The power of this method is once you start working, you develop a sense of forward movement and a feeling of accomplishment!




1. The salami slicing and Swiss cheesing methods are great tools to help you bust out of your procrastination funk!

2. Once you start working on the task and feeling accomplished you will do more than  you planned to do!

3. Fight the urge to just do NOTHING. Start with small pieces of work or small period of time. 

4.  Taking action is key to success. You cant just continue to THINK about what you need to do!!  


  1. Today’s reading assignment is to read Chapter 18 of the book only.
