OK – this is an oldie but a goodie. You are given a job to do (or you have imposed it on yourself).
It is BIG –
it is HUGE –
it is so mammoth that you fear it will CRUSH you.
It might be writing a novel, it might be moving house, it might be finishing a big report for a major project…
So how to tackle this enormous task? Well, actually there is only one way. If you are told that you have to eat an elephant, there really is only one way. And that is – one bite at a time.
So take your novel and reward yourself for every paragraph that you write. Because the book will only be finished one page or paragraph or sentence or word at a time. And you can do it if you just keep munching one word at a time. Good luck!
