Students at all levels struggle with how to manage their time. In high school they often find they need this skill for the first time, as they juggle classes, extracurricular activities (which are all but mandatory if you want to go to college), jobs, internships, family responsibilities, and more. In college they have more freedom and less structure, which makes time management even more critical. Brian Tracy's Eat That Frog! has helped millions around the world get more done in less time. Now this life-changing global bestseller has been adapted to the specific needs of students. Tracy offers readers tips, tools, and techniques for structuring time, setting goals, staying on task (even when you're not interested), dealing with stress, and developing the skills to achieve far more than you ever thought possible. This is the book that parents and teachers have long been wishing Brian Tracy would write.
