Microstyling is how many young adults read today. Much like a text message or Twitter update.

'Eat That Frog' by Brian Tracy is a motivational book focusing on the habits of procrastinators. 'Eat That Frog' highlights the main reasons people procrastinate in a simple, efficient manner. Tracy avoids delving deep into the psyche of chronic procrastinators, and instead takes a direct approach in encouraging readers to face their tasks head on, get organized and develop and maintain better habits that focus on priorities.
Tracy uses the word 'frog' as a metaphor that represents the one task or chore someone is avoiding. He maintains that if there is a task that is being dreaded, people tend to put all of their energy into completing smaller, less important tasks. This leads many people to mistake activity with accomplishment, which can hinder their prospects for personal and professional success.
'Eat That Frog' offers motivation by breaking down the steps readers need to follow to stop procrastinating and start producing. By utilizing to-do lists, readers are challenged to eat their frog, or rather, tackle their biggest and most averted items, first. The idea behind this is that no matter what happens to you that day, it can't be any worse than the frog you already ate. After accomplishing such a feat, readers will be motivated to tackle the rest of their to-do list, without lingering or wasting time on activities, since there is nothing left to dread. The result is higher productivity in many aspects of one's life, and better chances of succeeding in future endeavors.
These strategies have made 'Eat That Frog' one of the best selling business books for many years. Now, the original 128 page book has been transformed into a digital comic book. SmarterComics has taken the original book and applied comic-style graphics and microstyled text to create a shorter, fun to read comic book for a new generation of readers.
