Today I ate a frog

What a very unpleasant frog it was too. Big, fat, ugly, warty, toxic and definitely past its sell by date.  Strangely however,  having gorged myself on this disgusting morsel for two hours this morning,  I feel so much better.  I am refreshed, revitalised and feeling very pleased with myself. More importantly I can now move on to other tasks which need my attention.

Before you all think that I have completely lost the plot at long last I had better explain myself.  Mark Twain said  “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”

Metaphorically speaking of course, the live frog is usually the very task that you are most likely to put off doing and, more likely than not, it is also the one task that can have the most positive impact on your life. In other words, don’t procrastinate any longer. Do that task which has been hanging around too long now and move on. Further, if you have two frogs to choose from, eat the ugliest one first!

So don’t delay,  “Eat that Frog” and enjoy the rest of your day knowing that it can only get better! It really works.
