Eat the biggest frog first.

If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.
— Mark Twain

Some time ago, I came across this quote and thought to myself that it’s a good way of prioritizing the tasks on my plate. The second part, about eating the biggest one first has especially stayed with me, since as I start my day, I’m typically starting with some sort of task, and it’s a nice reminder to go ahead and knock out the tough one right out the gate.
