Top 5 Big Ideas From Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy:

Eat The Frog

The main idea is to identify the most important thing you can do at the given day, and do that, first thing in the morning.

Your ‘frog’ is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it now.

If you “eat the frog” first thing in the morning, then the rest of your day is going to be easy. Why? Because you know that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.

So you want to start every day with the question “What is the most important thing I can do today?” Think about, what is the one task, that can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment.Eat That Frog Review - Audiobook Brian Tracy

Set Goals

The more clear you are about what you want and what you have to do to achieve it, the easier it is for you to overcome procrastination, eat your frog, and get on with the completion of the task.

The no. 1 way to deal with procrastination is to set goals.

Take a blank sheet of paper and write down your top 10 goals you want to achieve this year.

Clarity will give you the ability to know which frogs you must eat first to complete your goals.

80/20 Rule

Pareto principle “Small amount of your activities are leading to a huge amount of your results.

Take time to figure out what those things are and do them more often.

For example: If you have 10 things on the list. there is a high probability that 2 things will get you 80% of the success you want.

So it’s crucial to identify what are the 1-2 things you must do now. These things will lead to great majority of your success.

Oil Barrels

What we want to do is to have micro goals. Don’t overwhelm yourself, thinking you need to get your goals in just one big step.

This is not going to happen. If you think that, you will procrastinate.

On the other side, if you break down you big goal to tiny little steps and micro goals you can do amazing things.


We waste a lot of time to distract ourselves. Being distracted is the worst enemy of productivity.

Now for example: If you turn off your email notifications, you’ll probably increase your productivity by 10 % – daily.

You don’t want to start something, check an email and then start working again on your task.

That kind of multitasking is horrible for your productivity. If you're doing that, you have to constantly get your momentum back, figuring out where you left off and it takes you forever to do that task.

It’s very important to do one thing at the time. Get in the habit of finishing things. You start it, you finish it.

If you have a habit of allowing yourself to be distracted, you must discipline yourself to single handle things. You’ll notice your productivity will go way up.
