How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time.
This is something I share with my students. Many times we can get overwhelmed with the elephant in the room (all that needs to be done).....so much so that we stop doing anything at all. We leave the elephant there....and he sits just getting bigger and bigger.
Who can eat a whole elephant in one setting? That's the point. We have to take it one bite at a time.
Life has picked up and I can get overwhelmed if I look at the big picture of all that needs to get done. Instead I am going to choose to take it one day at a time, one task at a time. One bite at a time.
