Why I Eat a Frog for Breakfast

Procrastination can get the best of us…we are all guilty of it at one time or another.  Whether you procrastinate at work, at home, or on your social media campaign; it can end up biting you in the ass.

Social Media Procrastination

Do you procrastinate on your social media tasks?  Is it a task you dread each day because you may very well end up down some rabbit hole and end up wasting a few hours before you knew what happened?  Maybe you are a one person crew who squeezes in social media time throughout the day when you can?  Or are you more systematic in your approach and set aside a slot of time each day to handle your social media tasks?

Do you view social media as one of the most difficult tasks of your day?  Or do you often find yourself procrastinating on writing that blog post, responding to messages on social networks, or any other social media task that needs to be completed?

Eat That Frog

I typically use the systematic approach in that I usually attack social media first thing in the morning.  It is usually one of my more pressing tasks for the day, so my goal is to complete the hardest task of the day first.  After this pressing task is done, all other tasks for the day will seem very easy to complete.  This is known as “eating the frog“…check out the video below to see what I am talking about.

Are You Up To The Challenge?

After watching the video, are you up for the 30 day challenge?  I have been using this approach for awhile and could not agree more with the points mentioned in the video.  I find that by completing my most pressing need first thing each day, I am more charged and motivated to finish out the more simpler tasks from my list.  Often I find that I get even more accomplished than what is on my list, which definitely shows how this is maximizing my energy and time management.

I can attest to once being somewhat of a procrastinator and feeling drained by the frog still sitting on the plate as the end of the day neared.  By eating the frog first, I am motivated throughout the day since I am not being haunted by the thought of a dreaded task to be completed wearing me down psychologically.

So What’s For Breakfast?

Can I expect to see a frog on your breakfast plate?  If so, let me know how this approach works out for you over the next month.  I am curious to see if you have the same success I have had with this approach.
