Brian Tracy is from the field of self-improvement training, for both individuals and companies. In this book, Eat That Frog!, Brian Tracy has put in all methods to avoid procrastination. A very good read that teaches how to eat that frog.
Here, the frog denotes the most difficult task that is in front of you among many more. If someone asks you to eat a frog, you wouldn’t do it. But if this task makes things easier for other task completion, then you would do it. It is a simple concept. Finish the most difficult task first and it would make other minor tasks more easier than they are. Brian Tracy has explained twenty-one different ways to cut down on procrastination. All are proven methods, the ones that many companies and individuals have implemented in their day-to-day life.
Eat That Frog is a must read for everyone. It is not for working professionals, it is also important in domestic life. Go for this book.
Review by Shwetha H S
Many of us have ideas and want to bring all of them to life. If not all together, at least one at a time. But not all of us know how to manage ourselves to make dreams come true. That’s where Henry E Liebling’s Handbook for Personal Productivity comes into picture. A self-help book that does not promise you to bring you out of the unproductive phase all alone, but says it will help you only if you are willing to give at least 50% of your best and rest will be done by the instructions.
The book deals with personal productivity, team achievement, quality customer service and health achievement. Under each segment, the author has encouraged help-seekers to follow his instructions and challenge themselves with certain simple tasks that help in improving your approach towards life and nearing your aims.
Though it is better to be self-motivated and look within instead of depending on somebody else to drag you out of hellhole, you can “use” Handbook of Personal Productivity to help you get a hold on your life better than before. This book helps you control your life and doesn’t take your life into its control. You can safely go with this book as it doesn’t ask you to completely and crazily alter you way of life and schedules. A safe bet it is!
