A New Way Of Looking At What’s Important

A New Way Of Looking At What’s Important
It’s interesting to me that what we think is important may not necessarily be high on the roster list of things to do.  Yet if we perceive it to be so important, why do the important things usually get done last and everything else gets pushed to the front?
I have noticed that most people tend to think if they address the small tasks first, that once they get that all out of the way, they can focus on the bigger task at hand.  When actually, the opposite is proven to be true.
Delaying the task that will have the greatest impact on your day or your overall goal is like sitting and watching a frog that you know you have to eat.  It doesn’t’ pay to do this all day.
Yes, you heard me right –“Eat The Frog.”

The concept is this:
If you know that the first thing you have to do each morning is eat a live frog, you can go through the rest of the day with the satisfaction of knowing that this is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day.
And…let’s just say you are really busy and you have two frogs before you, well, eat the ugliest one first.
Well it made me laugh when I first heard about this and it became a big splash for some of my clients who were struggling with procrastination and prioritizing effectively.
Enjoy!
