Eat That Frog – Does It Really Work?

April 27, 2017

If you are here on this page then you already know what Brian Tracy’s book, Eat That Frog, is all about.  It is about getting things done.  And I am going to take a guess and say that you wish to get more out of your time, you want to be more productive.  Well, I am halfway through this book so far, and I am actually astounded at how much the little bits of wisdom are working so well.

In Eat That Frog, Tracy gives you extremely simple tips on how to stop procrastinating.  Better yet, he helps you ingrain a behavior of being productive.  Once this behavior is stuck in you, you become addicted to getting things done.  It is a positive addiction, though.  It is good for your psychology and in fact your body to complete a task.  I don’t think I have this addiction yet, but it does feel great after completing a task.  I really hope the positive addiction that is brought about by completing tasks is true, because if it is, I will want to complete even more!

Despite me only being halfway through this book, I feel like I have already begun to increase my productivity.  Like Brian Tracy says in the book, some tasks require certain methods from the book to be done most efficiently, and for other tasks you may use completely different ideas from the book.  But every task can be completed easier by using the steps set forth in Eat That Frog.  I really can’t wait to read the rest of the book.  If only the first half of the book can have me 3 or 4 times as productive as I was before, I can not wait to see what the rest of the book can do.

But besides increasing productivity, what the book really is helping me do is stop procrastinating.  Tracy helps me learn easy ways to encourage myself to actually start those tasks that are on my list of things I will get to one day.  And that has truly been the biggest help of all.

If you want to check out more about this book, I encourage you check out the book on and read some of the reviews and hopefully even get it so you can become a way more productive version of your current self!  You might also want to check out the extremely popular audio version here.
