If the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you can get through the rest of your day with the satisfaction of knowing that that was probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you that day.

'Eat That Frog' by Brian Tracy is a call to procrastinators everywhere. From those who have trouble knowing where to start on their to-do lists, as well as those who focus all of their energy into completing smaller tasks first, and then dreading the major one (or two).
Brian Tracy has three words of advice for chronic procrastinators: Eat that frog. Thankfully, it's just a metaphor. He wrote his book based upon the old saying, "If the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you can get through the rest of your day with the satisfaction of knowing that that was probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you that day".
While the 'frog' represents whatever task a person is avoiding, this is exactly why Tracy suggests that readers just 'eat it and move on'. He advises that while compiling a to-do list, people take the worst, and apply it first. The idea behind this theory is that by dreading a certain task, people generally tend to avoid doing it, thus wasting time and productivity.
'Eat That Frog' encourages readers to make better decisions for personal and professional success, while helping them create lifelong habits that focus on their priorities.
SmarterComics has taken the core concepts from Tracy's original 128 page book and applied them to an 80 page, fully illustrated digital comic book.
