It has been said that if you must eat one green frog a day, eat it first thing in the morning and get it out of the way. And if you must eat two, eat the biggest one first. Using this principle when taking care of tasks has helped me immensely. It takes a lot of energy to worry about a task that I don't want to do. That is energy I could be putting toward things that are really important to me. When I find myself bogged down with some of these tasks, I take care of them as soon as possible, and take care of the biggest one first so I have more energy to put towards the other tasks. While I don't like the taste of frogs, I love the feeling when I have already eaten it and know it's out of the way!
