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:

Wanna know how to eat your ugliest frog?  You break it down into specific step-by-step activities and then you start on the 1st small activity.

Stop starting your goals before you THINK / PLAN them out!  Think on paper.  The author shares some solid tips on how to plan your goals!

Planning is sooooooo important divas!  It’s amazing how many people don’t do it every day, when you consider how every minute spent in planning saves you as many as 10 minutes executing that plan!  All you need is a piece of paper and pen!

New rule of  life sisters….  always work from a list!  When something new comes up, just add it to the list.  Make your list the night before. Move everything that you have not yet accomplished onto the list for the coming day.  Making your list at night, causes your subconscious mind to work on your list all night long while you sleep. Often awaking with a new great idea!  Lists increases your productivity by 25% or 2 hours a day!!

First you need a master list, on which you write everything down (that was yesterdays exercise) that you want to accomplish this year.  Second, you should have a monthly list that you make at the end of the month for the month ahead – which is based on what you want to accomplish this year.  Third, you should have a weekly list where you plan your entire week, based on what you want to accomplish that month. Finally, you guessed it, you should transfer items from you weekly list onto your daily list.  Steady, visible progress propels you forward and helps you overcome procrastination.

In other words, ladies, break that goal down to the lowest form!  Tear that goal apart, make your goal ACTIONABLE!  It’s not enough just write a broad goal!

    3. THEN you sequence / prioritize.  What has to go 1st 2nd 3rd 4th

    I learned that there are 4 types of lists that you should have to be successful. The crazy thing is that I create a mental list for the next day each night before I go to bed that I agonize over in my sleep. Maybe if I made these formal lists I will feel better as I check things off of it.

  • Danielle Irving says:

    My biggest weakness is my poor memory so I’may a huge fan of lists and I must admit that I’m addicted to the endorphin release that happens when I check items off. Lists and prioritizing help in every facet if life and I’m grateful.

  • Janice Alnutt Davis says:

    The techniques that are discussed in this book are exactly what was required when I was working. And, I also applied it to my home life as far as getting things accomplished if they were to get done. But I never applied them to ME! Since I’ve been retired, I have done away with goals, list, performance reviews, etc. I have been a slacker. I am very excited to start applying this to me and start taking care of me. Does anyone know how to highlight an e-book???

  • Lisa says:

    So last night, I created the lists. Already this morning, I have complete 2 things on the list. I may get “addicted” to this endorphin rush! I am running today and feeling great! All I had to do was write them down and cross them off…GAME CHANGER!!
