Mark Twain once said that if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, you know that the rest of your day will be better because the worst is behind you. After all, you’ve already eaten a live frog, what’s the worst that could happen?
Far too often we dread a task, perceiving that it is either nearly impossible or we simply hate doing it. It creates a dark mood that impacts our ability to focus and complete other tasks. Yet when the nasty task is completed every time we find that it was not that hard and we gained a tremendous sense of relief having completed it.
When you wake up each morning ask your subconscious what tasks do you “not want” to do today. Your subconscious will not lie. Start eating that frog as research suggests that we have more willpower in the morning so mornings are the optimal time to tackle nasty assignments.
Neuro linguistic programming is very useful here. Visit a NLP specialist and they will programme you to see that it’s just one task and then your day will be infinitely better. It will become your mantra – do this one thing and I’ll be invincible.
Swallowing your frog, or finishing your most dreaded or important assignments first, will give you a productive boost and reduce the number of items that you are worrying about.
