Where Have I Been? Eating Frogs!

Judging by how much I’m posting lately, the world’s been pretty quiet. But in actuality, it’s exactly the opposite!

So, where have I been?

Eating Frogs.

No, not those type of frogs – GROSS! 

(Though the kids did have one in our teranium for a few days.)

What I’m referring to is the time management concept that Brian Tracy teaches in his book,  Eat That Frog!

Eat That Frog by Brian TracyBasically, the concept is in order for you (and I) to avoid procrastination and truly be productive, you need to determine what the biggest most important thing that you have to do each day is and then do that one thing (i.e., eat that Frog). Then pick the next biggest and important thing and do that.

In a months like April and May, where I am over committed both professionally and personally (can you say baseball and swim team season!), I have had to pick and choose between what I want to do and what I really need to do.

Basically to use Brian Tracy’s analogy, I have had to pick out the biggest and ugliest frogs (tasks), and eat them first.

Unfortunately that means not doing some things that are fun and good, like personal blogging. And, I have to say, I Miss You!

But I have been working on some fun new things, that hopefully I’ll be share with you over the next few weeks. In the meantime, know that I am thinking of you and hope you are having a great Spring.
