NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED

The legendary Eat That Frog! (more than 1.5 million copies sold worldwide and translated into 42 languages) will change your life. There just isn't enough time for everything on our "To Do" list—and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure they get done.

There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using “eat that frog” as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day—the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also probably the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life—Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You'll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done.

Bestselling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. In this fully revised and updated second edition, he provides brand new information on how to keep technology from dominating your time. He details twenty-one practical and doable steps that will help you stop procrastinating and get more of the important tasks done—today!

The Esquire Guy on the Right Way to Miss a Deadline

The key to missing deadlines is, first, to miss them morally: fully aware of the problems you're causing other people and generally aware of the reason you're missing the deadline. (Note the active voice there. You--or your company--are missing the deadline. The deadline isn't being missed. For example: I am turning this column in late. The column isn't being turned in late. Responsibility must be assumed. And you are the one to assume it. Me, too.) The first part is easy: However much you think you're negatively affecting the party to whom you are not delivering the work, multiply that by thr

Is Your Managerial Ego Too Big?

Principalities are great for stamp collectors. They are less appealing when they exist inside your company, thanks to the manager or staffer who has built his or her own private Luxembourg. It's a phenomenon known in the management trade as "empire building": an urge to create fiefdoms with pumped-up staffs and budgets that match the inflated ego of the perpetrator--and it can sabotage your team, bottom line and worse. "It can kill the company," says Mark Faust, a growth and turnaround specialist at Cincinnati-based Echelon Management International and author of Growth or Bust! "You're lucky i

Why Basing Self-esteem On Money Could Make You Sad
