There's an old saying that says...

"If the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day!" Brian Tracy says that your "frog" should be the most difficult item on your things to do list, the one you're most likely to procrastinate; because, if you eat that first, it'll give you energy and momentum for the rest of the day. But, if you don't...and let him sit there on the plate and stare at you while you do a hundred unimportant things, it can drain your energy and you won't even know it. IN EAT The Frog ! Brian cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline and determination. In 21 practical steps, he will help you stop procrastinating and get more of the important tasks! Brian is one of America's leading authorities on development of human potential. He speaks to over 250,000 people a year and has written over 25 books. Eat the Frog! Is an international best seller, with over 500,000 copies sold. We're pleased to say, however, that Simple Truths has taken a great book, and well...made it better! How? We've made it a little shorter; a little more engaging with great graphics; a little more "giftable" with an embossed hard cover, and of course, packaging that can create a "wow" effect! In short, we've turned a great book into a great gift for employees, customers, friends and family. Here's a small sampling in Brian's chapter titled: Apply the 80/20 Rule to Everything.

An excerpt from

Eat That Frog!

by Brian Tracy

The 80/20 Rule is one of the most helpful of all concepts of time and life management. It is also called the "Pareto Principle" after its founder, the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who first wrote about it in 1895. Pareto noticed that people in his society seemed to divide naturally into what he called the "vital few", the top 20 percent in terms of money and influence, and the "trivial many", the bottom 80 percent. He later discovered that virtually all-economic activity was subject to this principle as well. For example, this principle says that 20 percent of your activities will account for 80 percent of your results, 20 percent of your customers will account for 80 percent of your sales, 20 percent of your products or services will account for 80 percent of your profits, 20 percent of your tasks will account for 80 percent of the value of what you do, and so on. This means that if you have a list of ten items to do, two of those items will turn out to be worth five or ten times or more than the other eight items put together. Number of Tasks versus Importance of Tasks Here is an interesting discovery. Each of the ten tasks may take the same amount of time to accomplish. But one or two of those tasks will contribute five or ten times the value of any of the others. Often, one item on a list of ten tasks that you have to do can be worth more than all the other nine items put together. This task is invariably the frog that you should eat first. Focus on Activities, Not Accomplishments The most valuable tasks you can do each day are often the hardest and most complex. But the payoff and rewards for completing these tasks efficiently can be tremendous. For this reason, you must adamantly refuse to work on tasks in the bottom 80 percent while you still have tasks in the top 20 percent left to be done. Before you begin work, always ask yourself, "Is this task in the top 20 percent of my activities or in the bottom 80 percent?" The hardest part of any important task is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you will be naturally motivated to continue. A part of your mind loves to be busy working on significant tasks that can really make a difference. Your job is to feed this part of your mind continually. Motivate Yourself

Just thinking about starting and finishing an important task motivates you and helps you to overcome procrastination. Time management is really life management, personal management. It is really taking control of the sequence of events. Time management is having control over what you do next. And you are always free to choose the task that you will do next. Your ability to choose between the important and the unimportant is the key determinant of your success in life and work. Effective, productive people discipline themselves to start on the most important task that is before them. They force themselves to eat that frog, whatever it is. As a result, they accomplish vastly more than the average person and are much happier as a result. This should be your way of working as well.

The Key For An Amazing Team
That Will Outperform In Any Environment

Teams are everywhere.

Humans have an innate need to work together.

Its part of our make up, we need to be together and working together for a common goal. It makes us feel significant with a purpose.
Having an excellent team is vitally important to accomplishing the vision as well. It doesn’t matter what we’re a part of (corporations, small businesses, churches, etc…), we can’t accomplish our visions alone.

We need good teams in order to do what’s in our hearts.

That way we get the strengths of different types of people working to a common goal… Which fills out our ability to accomplish the vision.

Building A Good Team Is Imperative To Accomplishing The Goals, Vision, And Mission.
It doesn’t really matter where you go, you’re going to have a team.
Even if you just consider them as “employees”, they’re still part of your team.

And how you view them will affect how well they work together. If you don’t view them very highly, then they won’t buy into the vision, because to them you’re just a boss and nothing more…

Because you see them as employees and nothing more. If you’re team doesn’t buy into your vision and have ownership in it, then you can say goodbye to truly accomplishing much.

It so important to have a functioning team, and this is one of the biggest mistakes people make: How the leader views their team mates.

Once a team feels connected to the vision and valued they will out perform your wildest dreams. The trick is putting a team together well.
A lot of organizations fail because the leader or manager didn’t know how to build a good team – even though they thought they did.

And thus their dreams are left unfulfilled. At the very best they may still be around, but their productivity will be low and they won’t be accomplishing much.

If you want your business to outperform the competition… Or if you have a vision for something new…

You need to know how to build a great team.

But most people don’t, and make some very common and easily avoidable mistakes
