Part training manual, part spiritual guide, the book uncovers a total mental/physical/emotional formula to: stop reacting defensively; retrain natural responses to stress triggers; resolve conflicts harmoniously; energize fatigued teammates; and, relax in difficult situations. In today’s overbooked world, pressure is almost impossible to avoid.

Eat that frog!

bookCoverAccording to the old saying, if you eat a live frog first thing each morning you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing it’s probably the worst thing you’ll do all day. Using “eat that frog” as a metaphor for tackling the day’s most challenging — and most prone to procrastination — task, Eat That Frog shows readers how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize their time. This means not only getting more things done, but getting the right things done. In his trademark high-energy style, Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what’s vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He details 21 practical, doable steps to stop the procrastination treadmill and get more of the important tasks done today. This expanded second edition includes practical strategies for outwitting those major time-thieves: the high-tech distractions of email, the Internet, and cell phones.
