Stop Procrastinating with Mark Twain’s “Eat That Frog!” Method – in WorkFlowy


June 14, 2018


Sometimes, all we need is to tweak our perspective a little in order to get things done. One of the most interesting productivity methods I’ve used to make headway on important projects and goals, stems from a quote by Mark Twain:

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.

Here’s a little video I’ve put together to illustrate this dead-easy dynamic:

The above screencast is part of Module 2 – “Prioritize Your Brain” – at the WorkFlowy Academy, where I run the gauntlet of productivity methods and concepts – illustrating step by step  how they find their incarnation in WorkFlowy.

Is there anyway to edit the CSS with stylish or anything else to change the font to something with SC? (small caps)

All the designated “small caps” fonts I have used turn into Sentence case upon importing. Help!

Hey Jeremy,

Here’s the code to change the global font:

#documentView {
font-family: YOUR_FONT_HERE !important;

Although, what you’ll want to do is be more selective and use this dynamic:

WorkFlowy does not ordinarily work as a Rich Text Editor. Natively you select a global font that affects everything… or you use Stylish and other hacks to change things up.

Hey John,

Here’s are the links to 2 separate styles that you can tinker with:

BTW, I’ve created an exhaustive module of screencasts (A Facelift for Your Brain) at the WorkFlowy Academy that deals with everything I’ve learned about changing things up with WorkFlowy over the last several years:
