Cosmopolitan (India) - - YOU, YOU, YOU - By Me­her Ba­jwa

Book­stores are flooded with ti­tles that prom­ise to ‘change your life for­ever’. So, which one should you pick? We’ve made things eas­ier by ask­ing five read­ers to read and re­view the most ex­cit­ing new launches.

“The book is su­per thin and read­ing it meant more time for Grey’s episodes(!), and that’s prob­a­bly why I picked it. It doesn’t make any big claims, but sur­pris­ingly, helped me be­come more or­gan­ised and much, much less lazy. Based on Mark Twain’s the­ory of ‘eat­ing a live frog’, Tracy ex­plains how im­por­tant it is to fin­ish the big­ger more dif­fi­cult tasks (the frog) first. We un­con­sciously waste our time in com­plet­ing smaller, less im­por­tant work. The book cas­cades from there: set the ta­ble, plan ev­ery­day in ad­vance, in­dulge in creative pro­cras­ti­na­tion, lever­age your spe­cial tal­ents, max­imise power in terms of your per­sonal re­la­tion­ships, and don’t com­pro­mise on fam­ily time ei­ther. By the end of it, you’ll be sure to find at least a few pro­duc­tiv­ity hacks that would make ‘eat­ing the frog’ more than worth it!”
