So many people talk about challenges with Time Management and it is often the biggest reason people give for not achieving and doing the things that they said they’d do. However, I’m sure you are aware that Time Management is actually Self Management!
Brian Tracy wrote a book called “Eat That Frog”. It sounds a bit Yucky! However it’s something that I talk about with all of my clients, my mastermind groups and it’s been a useful reminder for me to look at my list and start doing my time management really effectively.
Frogs vary in size, texture, smell and hairiness, and the tool is based on eating the largest, lumpiest, smelliest and hairiest frog first. The rest of the day then gets better.
Eating Frogs is SO important because it stops you from procrastinating, getting stuck and having loads of excuses and feeling rubbish. Have a listen to me talking about the tool and using A’s, B’s and C’s.
There’s a tool below the video with a bit of an explanation about ABCs.
Here’s a quick lesson on how to “Eat that Frog”
Write a list of everything that you have to do and then sort them into 3 groups
A’s are things that are very important to do today which will help you to reach your goals.
B’s are things that are simply nice to do but you can’t do them until you have done all of your A’s.
C’s are things to delegate to others.
Here’s a quick example Eat-that-Frog
I’ve filled in some of my A’s, B’ and C’s on as an example
Happy Frog eating and see you next week.
