560 – Yank Away

Join the WELSTech conversation as we continue our journey through Brian Tracy’s Eat that Frog!, a book about eliminating procrastination and tackling the challenges we face on a daily basis. Martin has a new camera in his bag, and we hear from a WELSTech-er who took our discussion topic to the next level by offering a community outreach event. Plus, Sallie solves an age-old question about USB drives!

The discussion:

Positive motivation – Chapters 13 & 14 of Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy are the subject of this week’s WELSTech discussion. Adopting an optimist mindset can enhance productivity as you see every “frog” as an opportunity for learning and identify lessons learned in every setback.
