There was a poster I had when I was a teenager that had an ugly toad on it sitting on a plate with the words, “Eat a live toad in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” I feel this phrase has been recently transformed to ‘Eat that frog’ that means to do that one thing that you dread – then it will be behind you, and the day will just get better.

I do enjoy getting the most unpleasant to-do list item done first. But sometimes I feel too accomplished with myself and then ignore the other items. I mean I already did the top priority. I should celebrate and goof off the rest of the day.

Yeah, I don’t recommend this attitude.
