There is a saying in the "Time Management" world that goes, "Eat that frog!" What it means is that every morning, you should eat a live frog. Then, the worst part of your day is over. Further broken down, it means that you should do your hardest tasks first during the day. These tasks can be the hardest because they take the most time, are the most tedious, or because you simply don't want to do it.
Today, my frog is my checkbook. As of last week, I hadn't balanced it since February 2011. Over the course of the last week, however, I have balanced it up to August 2011. My goal for this weekend is to be balanced up to October 2011. It should only take about 90 minutes...but I loathe balancing the checkbook. It is mind-numbing.
Everyone has a frog. What is yours? Identify it and then put some salt on that sucker and have at it!
