Should you do your most important task first thing each day?
Mark Twain said, “If you have to eat a toad, eat it first thing in the morning.”
Toads or not, I wonder if the “first thing” philosophy is best.
I believe that for morning people the first thing strategy works. But, for people whose energy level jumps in the afternoon, maybe mid-afternoon focus is best.
Ask yourself, “If I had to eat a toad when”…mmm…maybe another example would work.
