ETF is quite insightful in the way it is written. You can immediately tell that the author has lived through his suggestions and not just spouting a theory. I especially love the way each chapter is set up so at the end you are given a summary/checklist of sorts so you know Exactly what to do to avoid procrastination.
Long before you finish reading this book, you will find an overwhelming need to put its advice into action. Your only excuse will be that you don't want to.
My advice ... only buy this book if you truly want to get the job done--and I mean ANY job. Or to take a line from the book -- just "Eat That Frog!"
Some of his concepts didn't ring true with me which is why I didn't reach 5 stars on this book. The parts I found solid and valuable, however, easily outweighed any skepticism I had on some of his ideas.
Ideas like "zero-based thinking" and deliberate procrastination, his espousal of the ABCDE method of categorization and prioritization of tasks are approaches that stick out to me. Of the many items I highlighted throughout the text I like his suggested thought:
"What one skill, if I developed and did it in an excellent fashion, would have the greatest positive impact on my career?"
If you're working on eliminating a gap in personal productivity due to procrastination; if you experience fear, dread or loathing of some aspect of your work and it serves to prolong the effort or if you're looking to remind yourself of some principles around efficiency, this book is a good investment.
My big ah ha reading Eat That Frog was that is wasn't that I was supposed to do the biggest, hardest, thing I didn't want to do - first thing in the day - it was to figure out the biggest , most important thing that would bring the most value or get me closer to achieving my ultimate goal - the first thing every day. Sometimes it would be the hardest because it required more creativity or brain power - or was something that I didn't like doing - but learning how you can achieve much bigger results by refocusing your action items was a huge eye opener for me.
