Monday Matters! Make it Count!

It is MONDAY! Time to check the calendar for the workweek. What do you have to look forward to this week? Now let’s focus on today! What is on the to-do list?

As Brian Tracy, author of Eat That Frog, told us: “Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long. Your “frog” is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it.”

Brian Tracy and Anna Leinberger have written Eat That Frog for students. It is an excellent book for students as they gain the skills they need to form life-long habits for time management with the tips and tools revealed.

Students at all levels struggle with getting tasks completed, but when they reach secondary levels, the realization of time management sinks in. Students find themselves trying to balance school, extra-curricular, part-time jobs, friends, and family. The authors offer readers tips, tools, and techniques for structuring time, setting goals, staying on task (even when you’re not interested), dealing with stress, and developing the skills to achieve. A welcomed book for parents and teachers!

Please join my friend Becky Robinson from Weaving Influence as she interviews the authors. I had the privilege of being present and was so excited to see this as a great resource. Thank you for being part of the solution daily!https://youtu.be/4_eyBF5x-F0
