Eating the Frog

“Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”Mark Twain
The concept is simple, do the one thing on your to do list that is the one thing you dread the most- and everything else will be easier. For example, cleaning- my frog is dishes. Once I finish them all the other chores seem to be so much easier and simple. Paying bills, my frog, actually writing a check for the electric bill. I pay all my other bills online and it irks me to have to shell out an additional 0.50 cents for a stamp because my electric company won't get into the 21st century. Write the check, done- all the other bills somewhat, less painful. It's a new year and I want to be more productive with my time, so here goes... Time management- knowing when it's time to call it a night. Yup, Mark Twain, it is easier to eat the frog if you don't look at it directly, you just take the first bite. Which frogs will you be eating tomorrow?
