Have you eaten your frog today?

eat a frog and have a better day

Don’t worry this is not a cookbook for frogs.  It is a great business principle found in the words of . . .get this…Mark Twain.

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

Can you believe Mark Twain said something like that?

Well, let me break it down for you simply: If you do the one thing you dread most about doing in your business FIRST the rest of the day will get better.

If you don’t like making sales phone calls, do it first and get it out of the way.  If you don’t like responding to emails, do it first so you can get it out of the way. 

Fill in the blank:  I dread doing this one thing in my business:____________________.  I will do that one thing first thing in the moring and may day will get brighter and brighter.

Many times we procrastinate because we put off things we don’t want to do.  This method is a great way to cut that out.  If we get those things done first thing in the morning, when we have the most will power, we will be ready to take on our day like a Spartan. . . but that is for another day.

Eat your frog today and make it happen.

PS: I have heard there is even a business book about eating a frog.  I would look online if you want to know more about our simple version of this principle.

Listen to this song that
Idiosyncratic Al did for us:


He is 21, so that is close enough to a teen to be on this page!
