Finished for Friday: Eating That Frog

Today's finish is in the "lit" category - a classic book called "Eat That Frog" by Brian Tracy. The Subtitle is "21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time."

If you don't need a book like this, I envy you. I never seem to have the time I want to get everything done. This book is a great motivator. In a nutshell, he urges the reader to get the biggest, most difficult task for the day done first, and do nothing else until it's done. The title is from the Mark Twain quote "If you eat a frog first thing in the morning, the rest of your day will be wonderful."

It's a quick read, and it doesn't astound with anything new, it just inspires with a lot of positive attitude. I'll be picking it up again in the future to give myself a nudge.

The Hocuspocusville quilt isn't done yet, but soon. Soon.

Such great advice...Twain was such a wise man. Although I DO tend to do the hardest thing first...get out of bed! ;)

Have a great weekend!

I'm going to put that quote on my board in the classroom today.
This is perfect middle school humor.

I was going to start reading that book, but I just kept putting it off.
