Eat That Frog

One of my favorite books about priority management is Eat That Frog by noted expert Brian Tracy. In the introduction he gives us all a perspective about “frogs” that has been helpful to me and I hope it will be to you also:

The Truth About Frogs 

Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.

When it comes to time and priority management, a “frog” is your biggest, most important task – the one you are most likely to procrastinate on. It is also the one activity that can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment – even though doing other things may be easier or more fun. The very best thing you can do: TAKE A BITE!
The first rule of frog eating is this:

If you have to eat two frogs,
eat the ugliest one first.
Lead Well … Lead Right,

The Power of Discipline

“Discipline is the bridge between goals
and accomplishment.”
~Jim Rohn
When you practice self-discipline you feel like you are in control of your life. You feel content and motivated because you’re moving toward your goals.
Brian Tracy is one of America’s leading authors on the development of human potential. He said, “If I had to pick the number one key to success, it would be self-discipline. It is the difference in winning or losing; between greatness and mediocrity.”
Today, I’d like to share Brian’s introduction to The Power of Discipline: 7 Ways It Can Change Your Life. Enjoy!
____________________________________________________________________________________
Why are some people more successful than others? Why do some people make more money, live happier lives and accomplish much more in the same number of years than the great majority?
I started out in life with few advantages. I did not graduate from high school. I worked at menial jobs. I had limited education, limited skills and a limited future.
And then I began asking, “Why are some people more successful than others?” This question changed my life.
Over the years, I have read thousands of books and articles on the subjects of success and achievement. It seems that the reasons for these accomplishments have been discussed and written about for more than two thousand years, in every conceivable way. One quality that most philosophers, teachers and experts agree on is the importance of self-discipline. As Al Tomsik summarized it years ago, “Success is tons of discipline.”
Some years ago, I attended a conference in Washington. It was the lunch break and I was eating at a nearby food fair. The area was crowded and I sat down at the last open table by myself, even though it was a table for four.
A few minutes later, an older gentleman and a younger woman who was his assistant came along carrying trays of food, obviously looking for a place to sit.
With plenty of room at my table, I immediately arose and invited the older gentleman to join me. He was hesitant, but I insisted. Finally, thanking me as he sat down, we began to chat over lunch.
It turned out that his name was Kop Kopmeyer. As it happened, I immediately knew who he was. He was a legend in the field of success and achievement. Kop Kopmeyer had written four large books, each of which contained 250 success principles that he had derived from more than fifty years of research and study. I had read all four books from cover to cover, more than once.
After we had chatted for awhile, I asked him the question that many people in this situation would ask, “Of all the one thousand success principles that you have discovered, which do you think is the most important?”
He smiled at me with a twinkle in his eye, as if he had been asked this question many times, and replied, without hesitating, “The most important success principle of all was stated by Thomas Huxley many years ago. He said, “Do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.”
He went on to say, “There are 999 other success principles that I have found in my reading and experience, but without self-discipline, none of them work.”
Self-discipline is the key to personal greatness. It is the magic quality that opens all doors for you, and makes everything else possible. With self-discipline, the average person can rise as far and as fast as his talents and intelligence can take him.

Daily Quote: A Wonderful Time

This is a wonderful time to be alive. There have never been more
possibilities and opportunities for you to achieve more of your goals than
exist today. As perhaps never before in human history, you are actually
drowning in options. In fact, there are so many good things that you can
do, that your ability to decide among them may be the critical
determinant of what you accomplish in life.
