Mark Twain once said “eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” You will hear this phrase in business, and I often hear it in conversations among entrepreneurs.
If you’re a procrastinator, keep the concept, “eat that frog,” in mind. Start your day by knocking out the toughest project or the one you least want to do.
Another approach is to select your largest project first thing in the morning, and work on a section of that project. Doing this on a daily basis will help you keep your project moving along towards completion.
