Eat That Frog!

This lighthearted one-minute video is a good reminder to avoid procrastination at all costs. I remember laughing years ago when I first heard the aphorism, Eat a live frog the first thing in the morning, and nothing worse can happen to you the rest of the day.

I really like how motivational author and speaker Brian Tracy  uses the frog story to point out some valuable tips on time management. The frog example is just another way to say, Do the worst first! It’s good advice.

Tracy even turned the frog maxim into a book called Eat That Frog!


So what are you waiting for? Get out the salt and pepper and make it a great day!


Through God’s Eyes: Finding Peace and Purpose in a Troubled World, is a road map for living a more peaceful, beautiful life.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

SiSe_fullcover_final.inddPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed.

Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.

    Hello and thank you for this blog. Because you are a fan of Brian Tracy, I thought I would let you know that he is in the new movie “The Compass”.

    I think you’ll like it.

    Yes, I have at least one giant frog on my shoulder, or perhaps two. I may not be able to gulp it down in one day, but I start nibbling at it… and I make it a chocolate frog. It might not be healthy, but it tastes good!

    And I start nibbling right now…

    By the way, I am supposed to learn about WordPress… I’ll wait until one of the frogs is gobbled up.

  6. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Let me know when you’re ready, Tony, and I’ll help you get started with WordPress.
