We all have at least one "frog" in our lives - things we don't like to or don't feel like doing. The natural tendency is to put this thing off and then low and behold, we run out of time and we move it to tomorrow's to do list.
Now if we REALLY don't want to do this thing, we put it off OVER and OVER again and then weeks, maybe even months have passed and we've made absolutely NO progress simply because we never got started! This can easily happen even with tasks that we see great benefit from like planning meals and working out! We know they are necessary to reach our goals, but we just don't wanna! Am I on your street?
Here's what you need to do: EAT THAT FROG! Get it done first before you move onto other things so that it is sure to get done. "First" could mean doing your workout in the AM before you go to work because you've proven to yourself it doesn't get done after. Or if you are an evening workout person, it could mean not allowing yourself to pass go - your gym bag is in the car and you head to the gym right after work - no stops. If you workout at home, it's the FIRST thing you do, before you start dinner, watch TV, etc.
If you're SERIOUS about seeing change in your life, put this tip in place. You will get more important things done and the not-so-important stuff will finally take a back seat.
