Are you fond of frogs?
December 16, 2017

Our radio talk show, as you probably know, is called Doing What Works. What you might not know is the inspiration for much of it. Can you guess? What hasn’t worked. I could fill a book.

One thing that didn’t work was putting off my workouts until later in the day, which is a recipe for not liking most of the day. Now I make it a game. I front-load the day and the week with what I dread most. We call it “eating the frogs.” I get as much of the yuck over with as quickly as I can, and the rest of the day -- and the week -- stretches out in what feels like an ocean of time.

There’s something so empowering about doing what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it.
