Eating the frog first.

Basically I do the thing I really don't want to do first and then the rest of the day is awesome! Plus that thing is usually not as bad I think it is.

u/johnthebatshit · 14 pointsr/theXeffect

Encourage everyone to try out this card. The idea is based on the Brian Tracy [book] (

The premise of the idea:

> "If the first thing you do every morning is to eat a live frog you can then go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that its probably the worst thing thats going to happen to you all day long. Your 'frog' is your biggest most important task. its the one your most likely to procastinate on if you dont do something about it right now. Its also the ONE task that can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment."

You can listen to the full audio book on youtube [here] (

I think Brian Tracy also wrote a book on this...

books can be very helpful. This is a great one on procrastination. I admit I do not utilize these techniques to there max but I do use a few of them. The Title is Eat that Frog and that philosophy works pretty well. If the first thing you do in the morning is eat a frog, the rest of your day can't be that bad. Do the hardest thing first, it gives you confidence that you can do it, and also makes everything else easier. That and habits, start good ones and KEEP THEM.

I think it's a phrase but Eat That Frog! brought it to my (and probably others') attention.

There's also a book, which is largely centered around this school of thought. It's called "Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time" by Brian Tracy. (ISBN: 1576754227). A decent read, IIRC.

Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with the product linked above. Mods, feel free to remove this post if product links aren't allowed. I've also included the ISBN for consumers wishing to check out the book via means other than Amazon.

did you read the book?

I've long suffered with procrastination, and honestly, my suggestion is going to sound kind of ridiculous. No special tips or tricks---- just what's worked for me. Every time there's something I should do, I just do it.

I always wanted to be one of those people that just got things DONE. No hesitation, no procrastination---- as soon as a task presented itself, I wanted to be one of those people that just tackled it. I've slowly been trying to mold myself into one of those people by simply just doing things instead of thinking about doing things.

Some things that I've found useful:
-If I find myself thinking "Oh, I should really do x, y, z....", I try to shut down the "I should" process and jump immediately into action. Staring at a dirty dish in the sink? Looking at a pile of paperwork that needs to be sorted? Instead of thinking "I should do this", I immediately shut down the "thinking" part of my brain and just DO IT. Try to make it impulsive. Impulsive can be positive.

Interesting.. but it doesn't work for procrastinators like me.. I loved the book Eat that Frog! and it did have a very positive impact on me

It talks a great deal of procrastinator psychology and how to get things done

Depends, which one's more important and more relevant to your current situation? Prioritize your list, then figure out what are the necessary steps you need to take to complete that task.
Once you complete task #1 for instance, not only do you have to maintain task #1, but now, you add on task #2 to tackle.

There are a lot of books out there to help you become more goal-oriented, 'Eat that Frog by Brian Tracy' and 'The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg' might help you make better habits in your life.

If there is a pattern, this would be it imo. I'm not a pro at this yet, but this is what works for me currently, and hopefully works for you too. Be patient, do what you're supposed to do, and results will follow.

You can do it if you have good discipline and manage your time efficiently. DO NOT SKIP ON SLEEP. Do not wait to until two days before a test to start learning. Spend 1-2 hours everyday on each subject.

I really liked this book. It helps to understand how your mind works to be able to form good habits and work efficiently. It takes 45 days to form one simple habit.

Engineering is hard but it's also not that hard. If you dont like the textbook or proff, find a better source to learn the material. Go to your proff office hours, find productive study groups and join them.

READ THIS BOOK! It changed the way I approach everything in life now. I went from a nothing to a manager in my company in six months after reading this book and applying it to my daily life.


u/x-rosegarden-x · 1 pointr/NonZeroDay

I'm sorry you are going through a rough time! The anxiety you are feeling is totally understandable.

My tip would be to set aside some time early in the morning, if you can. (Even getting up before you usually would.) Do some coursework in a small amount of time, say 15 to 25 minutes.

If you feel like taking on more, great! Maybe get up and stretch, then dive back into it. If not, move on with your day, with a lighter heart knowing you have made progress. No need to anxiously think about it all day - you will have already made an effort, and you can use that fact to soothe yourself.

I hope this helps. For me, getting up and doing something before I have the chance to start worrying is best. (I put off phone calls ALL THE TIME, so jumping out of bed and getting them done helps my anxiety.)

I believe there is a book on this I've been meaning to read - but here the quote the book is based on:

> “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” - Mark Twain

Looks like you're "stealing" a book title, there.
