Eat That Frog

If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first. - Mark Twain

In the last post I talked about one trick to adopt to get ourselves in the practice room. I would now like to talk about a concept which I had known about for what seems to be forever (thank you, Mom!) but was presented to me in a fresh way a couple months ago during a visit to the Savor blog. In a short video segment the former concert pianist and deeply inspiring young successful entrepreneur Angela Jia Kim (founder of Om Aroma & Co and creator of the Manifest Method) discusses how you can increase your productivity by simply “eating that frog.”

The concept is a well-known one of course: when facing many obligations, start with the one which might seem to be the most daunting first thing in the morning. However, being the analogy-lover that I am, I sincerely appreciated this new take on the concept. Kim herself was introduced to the notion through Brian Tracy’s book Eat That Frog!.
