"Eat the frog" with RTM

mcaneted says:
There is a quote from Mark Twain that says:

"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."

It means we all have that one (sometimes two) thing in our list that we know we have to tick off, but is just too hard or boring to begin. So, we normally procrastinate on it, making us feel stressed for not doing it.

The advice is to spot that nasty task (I have a special "frog" tag for it) and just do it first thing in the morning. After that, your day will continue with you feeling happy and liberated.

Hope you find this useful.
