There just isn't enough time for everything on our 'To Do' list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure they get done. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using 'eat that frog' as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day - the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also probably the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life - Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You'll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done. Bestselling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective time management: decision, discipline, and determination. In this fully revised and updated second edition, he provides brand new information on how to keep technology from dominating your time. He details twenty-one practical and doable steps that will help you stop procrastinating and get more of the important tasks done - today!

'I owe, I owe, so off to work we go.' A Grumpy perspective on the daily grind. Whether we are celebrity chef or hapless waiter, engineer or oily rag, commissioning editor or TV producer, all of us have a whole daily wagon-load of s**t to deal with in the name of work. From boardroom to boredom, from 'what's the point?' to Powerpoint, from 9 to 5 to P45. And that's what this new book from uber-grump Stuart Prebble is all about; the utter everyday relentless crapulence of working for 'the man', or indeed 'the woman'. The workplace is a piece of cake for someone of his curmudgeonly quality. It's not possible in a book of this size to include ALL the grumps arising from the working day - the office politics, the shortcomings of IT, the interminable meetings and some of your colleagues' weirder habits, but he is giving it a go. Grumpy? I'll say we are ...

speakers and author of the bestselling books Maximum Achievement and The 100 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws of Business Success Offers 21 proven strategies that will give you a competitive edge in selecting and keeping excellent people Concise, handy, quick to read and easy to apply From corner cubicle to corporate suite, managers today say their biggest concern is the competition for talent. The critical constraint on the growth and success of any business is the ability to attract and keep excellent people. Unfortunately, very few managers have been thoroughly trained in the process of personnel selection. And they hardly have time to sign up for a course: they are confronted with an immediate need for personnel know-how. In his latest book, Brian Tracy draws on over 20 years of training managers in the art of employee selection to pinpoint the 21 most important, proven principles of employee recruitment and retention. In a single, brief, easy-to-read volume, Tracy summarizes the essential information every manager must know to attract the most capable, committed employees and to make sure they continue to be active contributors to the company for years to come. For each of these 21 techniques, Tracy discusses the underlying principle and offers an Action Exercise that enables readers to apply the technique immediately and see the results for themselves. Filled with proven, practical knowledge, Hire and Keep the Best People distills years of hard-won wisdom into a quick and easy set of techniques, offering managers effective steps they can take today to find, select, hire, orient, train, and retain the best people for their business.
