Prioritize your tasks

(2020-11-15 17:48:40) 下一个

I finished listening to the audio book “ Eat that frog” while I was doing the housework today.  The falling leaves of the backyard reminds me the winner ought to come.  Time flies fast, I can't believe it’s almost the end of 2020.

Speaking of time, the whole idea of the “Eat that Frog” was about how to be more productive and use your time wisely. The book only lasted 2 and half hours, but I found it very practical. And the most valuable lesson I learned from the book is: Prioritize your tasks!  It tells you how spending a couple of minutes outlining and prioritizing what you need and want to get done will let you get double done that day.

I found myself is having a difficult time to use my own words to give you the summaries due to my poor English. I'll copy his own summaries below for your reference.

Thank you for reading. My first priority at this point in my life is to improve my English. Thanks you all for giving me the motivation to write here everyday. Until next time:)
