🐘 Question that my slightly (correction: extremely) eccentric boss used to ask me:β €
β €
Q: How do you eat an elephant?β €
β €
A: One bite at a time. β €
β €
πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦ I often start the day feeling like I have a huge elephant to eat (not literally, cos that ain't very #vegetarian). There are just so many things to DO and I often feel huge bouts of OVERWHELMITIS just thinking about it. β €
β €
But, if I take it one thing at a time, at the end of the day it (mostly) all gets done, and we sleep (sort of) and we wake up and do it all over again the very next day. We eat the elephant, one bite at a time and before we know it the elephant has been NOMMED.β €
β €
🐦  It's a little bit like Anne Lamott's 'Bird by Bird' analogy; you just got to take it one step at a time, one bite at a time, one bird at a time... and before you know it that seemingly HUGE task has been accomplished. β €
β €
I hope you're feeling fresh after the long #Easter weekend and ready to face the week one bite a time! I'm certainly ready to convert these chocolate calories into ACTION :)β €
β €
Go get 'em, cocoa soldiers! <3β €
β €
p.s. has sort of made my week that there is an actual elephant emoji. i see more of this in my future. β €
