Eat the frog

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:

  1. Plan the day the night before
  2. Select all the tasks for the next day and put them on a calendar (schedule your tasks)
  3. Move the frog task to the top of the calendar
  4. Don’t switch on your phone or open any other tab until this task is complete
  5. 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!)
