A Review: Eat That Frog Part 4


Chapter 11 : Upgrade Your Key Skills : Eat That Frog!

"1.  Identify the key skills that can help you the most to achieve better and faster results.  Determine the core competencies that you will need to have in the future to lead your field.  Whatever they are, set a goal, make a plan, and begin developing and increasing your ability in those areas.  Decide to be the very best at what you do!

2.  Develop a personal plan to prepare yourself to do your most important tasks in an excellent fashion.  Focus on those areas where you have special talents and that you most enjoy.  This is the key to unlocking your personal potential." pg. 62

Chapter 12 : Identify Your Key Constraints : Eat That Frog!

"1.  Identify your most important goal in life today.  What is it?  What one goal, if you achieved it, would have the greatest positive effect on your life?  What one career accomplishment would have the greatest positive impact on your work life?

2.  Determine the one constraint, internal or external, that sets the speed at which you accomplish this goal.  Ask, 'Why haven't I reached it already?  What is it in me that is holding me back?'  Whatever your answers, take action immediately.  Do something.  Do anything, but get started."

Chapter 13 : Put the Pressure on Yourself : Eat That Frog!

"1.  Set deadlines and subdeadlines on every task and activity.  Create your own 'forcing system.'  Raise the bar on yourself and don't let yourself off the hook.  Once you've set yourself a deadline, stick to it and even try to beat it. 

2.  Write out every step of a major job or project before you begin.  Determine how many minutes and hours you will require to complete each phase.  Then race against your own clock.  Beat your own deadlines.  Make it a game and resolve to win!" pg 71

Chapter 14 : Motivate Yourself into Action : Eat That Frog!

"1.  Control your thoughts.  Remember, you become what you think about most of the time.  Be sure that you are thinking and talking about the things you want rather than the things you don't want.

2.  Keep your mind positive by accepting complete responsibility for yourself and for everything that happens to you.  Refuse to criticize others, complain, or blame other for anything.  Resolve to make progress rather than excuses.  Keep your thoughts and your energy focused forward, on what you can do right now to improve your life, and let the rest go." pg 75
