Next time you need a motivational quote to get started in the morning, think about Mark Twain. He may not be the first person that comes to your mind for matters of work productivity, but as this infographic points out, he gives a suggestion that anyone can appreciate. “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” Hard to argue with that advice! What this means is do the hardest task on your to-do list as soon as you wake up (or get to work). That way, the rest of the day flows downhill from there.

That’s just “Day 1″ of this week-long outline of how to increase your productivity. It’s a quick, daily pick-me-up!
