“Als je ‘s ochtends begint met een levende kikker in te slikken, valt de rest van de dag reuze mee”. Mark Twain”
Eat that frog!
The phrase itself is borrowed from two quotes from Mark Twain:
– “If you eat a frog first thing in the morning, the rest of your day will be wonderful.”
– “If you have to eat a frog, don’t look at it for too long.”
Your frog for today – looking all ugly and nasty on your plate – is the most important, most challenging, the biggest and hardest task you could possibly do. Now imagine finishing that task early in the morning, before you do anything else. Don’t think about it twice, just start working on it and don’t stop until it is finished. It will give you a great sense of accomplishment for the rest of the day and if you keep this momentum going you will have a very productive day.
