Mark Twain once said that if you had to eat a live frog first thing each morning, you could go through your day knowing that that is probably one of the worst things that is going to happen to you that day.

Tackling your most important tasks the very first possible moment you can might be the best way to overcome procrastination (and the latter is something that happens to me so often). The most successful and effective people know that by taking care of their “frogs” first thing, they get into execution mode and make huge progress on their most important goals.

The good part is that every day, you have a chance to try this again an get better at it over time. Why don’t you review your list of things for today and start with the hardest, biggest and most important task?
