1. Face the Biggest Challenge First: Identify your biggest, most important task—the "frog"—and tackle it first. Doing so can energize and motivate you for the rest of the day.

2. Plan Ahead: Before diving into your day, spend time listing tasks, and setting clear goals. A few minutes of planning can save hours of wasted time.

3. Jump into Action: The longer you delay tackling your "frog", the harder it becomes. Dive in and get it done.

4. Break It Down: Large tasks can be overwhelming. Divide them into smaller, manageable parts and start with just one.

5. Master Your Environment: Take charge of your workspace, ensuring it promotes focus and minimizes unnecessary interruptions.

6. Leverage Your Peak Times: Understand when you're most productive, whether it's morning, afternoon, or evening, and schedule demanding tasks accordingly.

7. Reflect and Refine: Regularly retrospect on your methods and outcomes to make adjustments for better productivity.
