Eat a frog first thing every day…
and nothing worse can happen to you the rest of the day

This philosophy reinforces the concept of “Do it now” and “Get it over with” for chronic procrastinators. Pick your most avoided task and tackle it first. FlyLady is right. It usually isn’t as bad as you thought and probably won’t take anywhere near as long as you thought to get it done and over with.

Except…

My choices of procrastinated, put off, hard-to-think-about overdue items are both many and varied. They could easily provide me with a solid diet of frogs for breakfast for weeks.

Now, that is a daunting visual.
