    As you may know until you can't manage time you can't manage anything else, including to get lots of money :) But these quotes are about even more than this.

    So here I extracted every key quote from all the chapters found in the legendary "Eat That Frog" book (which is a must read for anyone who wants to succeed in life). Hope this will help you.

    Set the Table

    "There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it." ( Napoleon Hill )
    ----------------

    Plan Every Day In Advance

    "Planning is bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it now." (Alan Lakein)
    ----------------

    Apply the 80/20 Rule to Everything

    "We always have time enough, if we will but use it aright." (Wolfgang Von Goethe)
    ----------------

    Consider the Consequences

    "Every man has become great, every successful man has succeeded, in proportion as he has confined his powers to one particular channel." (Orison Swett Marden)
    ----------------

    Practice the ABCDE Method Continually (this method reffers to having your to do list prioritized)

    "The first law of success is concentration - to bend all the energies to one point, and to go directly to that point, looking neither to the right or to the left." (William Mathews)
    ----------------

    Focus On Key Result Areas

    "When every physical and mental resource is focused, one's power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously." (Norman Vincent Peale)
    ----------------

    Obey the Law of Forced Efficiency

    "Concentration, in its truest, unadulterated form, means the ability to focus the mind on one single solitary thing." (Komar)
    ----------------

    Prepare Thoroughly Before You Begin

    "No matter what the level of your ability, you have more potential than you can ever develop in a lifetime." (James T. McKay)
    ----------------

    Do Your Homework

    "The only certain means of success is to render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be." (Og Mandino)
    ----------------

    Leverage Your Special Talents

    "Do your work. Not just your work and no more, but a little more for the lavishings sake - that little more that is worth all the rest." (Dean Briggs)
    ----------------

    Identify Your Key Constraints

    "Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus." (Alexander Graham Bell)
    ----------------

    Take It One Oil Barrel at A Time

    "Persons with comparatively moderate powers will accomplish much if they apply themselves wholly and indefatigably to one thing at a time." (Samuel Smiles)
    ----------------

    Put the Pressure on Yourself

    "The first requisite for success is to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary." (Thomas Edison)
    ----------------

    Maximize Your Personal Powers

    "Gather in your resources, rally all your faculties, marshal all your energies, focus all your capacities upon mastery of at least one field of endeavor." (John Haggai)
    ----------------

    Motivate Yourself into Action

    "It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and of creative action that man finds his supreme joys." (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
    ----------------

    Practice Creative Procrastination

    "Make time for getting big tasks done every day. Plan your daily workload in advance. Single out the relatively few small jobs that absolutely must be done immediately in the morning. Then go directly to the big tasks and pursue them to completion." (Boardroom Reports)
    ----------------

    Do the Most Difficult Task First

    "The longer I live, them more I am certain that the great difference between men, between the feeble and the powerful, between the great and the insignificant, is energy -invincible determination- a purpose once fixed, and then death or victory." (Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton)
    ----------------

    Slice and Dice the Task

    "The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably in thought and act." (Orison Swett Marden)
    ----------------

    Create Large Chunks of Time

    "Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all of your energies on a limited set of targets." (Nido Qubein)
    ----------------

    Develop A Sense of Urgency

    "Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along." (Napoleon Hill)
    ----------------

    Single Handle Every Task

    "And herein lies the secret of true power. Learn, by constant practice, how to husband your resources, and concentrate them, at any given moment, upon a given point." (James Allen)
