Cuisses de Grenouille

Eat a live frog first thing in the morning
and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.
― Mark Twain

Well, that’s certainly a recipe for success...

If the frog is of the metaphorical variety, of course.

In his book Eat That Frog! business coach Brian Tracy spells out a simple method for beating procrastination.

He suggests that those items on your daily “To Do” list are actually not tasks at all —

They’re frogs.

And if you want a surefire sauté for a successful day…

Always eat the biggest, baddest, ugliest one first.

Not only will you knock a greater number of items off of your daily list…

Face it, once you've choked down one giant UGly frog, the rest are a whole lot easier to swallow

Over time, you’ll also accomplish your most important 2014 goals faster.

And you may be surprised to find that those biggest, baddest frogs aren't really so bad after all.

In fact —

They taste a lot like chicken.

PROMPT: What if you took out your magic wand and turned your daily creating, writing, or revising time into your hairiest, scariest, wartiest frog? Try it for a month, and who knows — one kiss of success might just turn you into writing royalty.
