Eat That Frog: A Book Review

The book speaks on my level. I didn’t feel like the information was having to be “dummied” down in order for me to understand it, which means that anyone could and will find value from reading this. I myself am a Perfectionist Procrastinator and I hesitate to even want to work on projects unless I have all the planning compelte and everything looks perfect.

With this book I was able to follow along with clear and concise steps that would help me to start implementing what I was reading right away.

“Here is a great rule for success.: Think on Paper.” – Brian Tracy

This is me to a T! I love to think on paper. I love the act of writing, or re-writing, organizing all the things. In fact if it isn’t written down that to me it doesn’t exist! So really, Brian Tracy was speaking my language in this book!

Brian Tracy walks through seven steps in this book which I think are great steps to take for any time you are working on a project. Take a look

  1. Decide what you want
  2. Write it down
  3. Set a deadline
  4. Make a list
  5. Organize the list
  6. Take action
  7. Work on it everyday

These seven steps are broken down throughout the entire book, Eat That Frog as the author really takes a look at each step it takes to accomplish tasks on your list, big projects, and even hopes and dreams you might have.

My only struggle with this book is that I couldn’t read it fast enough. Every single chapter had so much great information in it. One key of advice I would give, is that although the information is amazing, you still have to omplement it in bite sized chunks or you might feel overwhelmed by comleting the task at hand.

As a planner coach, there are many principles in this book that I would definitely recommend. When we can take something and break it down into bite sized, applicable scenarios you are more apt to complete the task at hand.

Here are some of the concepts that are mentioned in this book. If you are struggling to get started with some “big” projects, or just the concept of time management in general this is definitely a place that you would want to start:
