Eating a frog

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 | Success & Productivity

There is a Mark Twain quote:

“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.”

This is because your motivation is strongest in the morning, and fades throughout the day. Therefore, you need to start with the task of most resistance on your to-do list. You will only have less motivation later.

My advice is to make sure you imagine that your job is to eat a live frog. I am not sure Twain realised that cooked frogs are actually quite tasty.
