The quote I wanted to leave everyone with today was “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” – Mark Twain.
If you have any tasks you’re dreading, conversations you’ve been avoiding, it’s best to go ahead and get after it. Start your days attacking what’s difficult. Day can only get better from there. I need to remind myself of that most days, and it’s great to knock out my physical frog with you guys on F3 mornings!
Eat that frog.
Op out
