Your first task each morning should be the frog.
After you wake up, do something that brings your heart rate up, followed by a few deep breaths with your eyes closed, and then you EAT THE FROG.
The frog here is that ugly and hard-to-do task that will actually move you forward in life or work.
It’s the ugliest but the most important task of the day from one of your projects.
Here’s how I do this:
- Plan the day the night before
- Select all the tasks for the next day and put them on a calendar (schedule your tasks)
- Move the frog task to the top of the calendar
- Don’t switch on your phone or open any other tab until this task is complete
- Repeat this every day
P.S. I usually choose a task that takes around 1 hour for the frog task – and it’s usually a very important task (not just ugly but also important!)
