Eat the Frog

Eat the Frog

Eating a frog. Paints a real picture doesn’t it? Ok, so we might not literally be talking about eating a frog, but rather we’re talking about those jobs on the to-do list that we just don’t want to face. It's almost like when you’re a child and there’s that one food on your plate that you can’t stand or don’t want to eat. My parents used to say, “Eat that bit first to get it out of the way!” Every to-do list has that one job that you don’t want to do, but here’s what Brian Tracy, writer of ‘Eat the Frog’ has to say about keeping on track with our to do list. The message is simple, sometimes there are jobs on our to-do list that need to be approached like eating a frog. Get it done first, so you don’t spend half of your day thinking or worrying about it.

Having said that, it never feels easy, especially when you’re getting started. Even if you’re feeling highly motivated to keep your business moving, your best plans can still get derailed.

To help you win the battle, we’ve combined the tips shared by Brian Tracy in his international bestseller “Eat that Frog: 21 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time” with our own tried-and-tested productivity tips to give you the productivity short cut you deserve.

Family vs Business - Finding a Healthy Balance

Family vs Business - Finding a Healthy Balance

It’s never easy to find the right balance of family and business when you’re a business owner or entrepreneur.

You have a responsibility to ensure that your business performs as highly as it should. And as we all know, there are times when we need to make sacrifices; burn the candle at both ends and give up some of our free time to make our venture work. This is especially true when you’re just getting your business off the ground.

It’s easy to get sucked into the trap of putting work first, not seeing as much of your kids or family as you’d like and missing many of their milestones.

Trying to balance your family and business is always going to be difficult, increasing your stress levels and causing you to underperform both at work and at home.

Follow the tips we share below and you’ll find it much easier to juggle your responsibilities, take care of your loved ones and drive your business forward towards success.
