African Elephant

Feeling hungry?

This is one of those weeks, when I’ve clearly bitten off more than I can chew.

We had a large number of clients coming through, many with challenging deadlines, and I am going to be out for a couple of days helping on my oldest son’s school camp.  In the midst of that, I’ve still managed to maintain my usual blogging schedule.

As I look at everything that needs to be done in such a short period of time, I am reminded of the old adage:

Q: How do you eat an elephant?

A: One bite at a time!

There may be a lot to do, and not a lot of time to do it, but all I can do is break the work down into bite sized chunks and start chewing.

One client at a time.

One call at a time.

One writing deadline at a time.

And so, methodically, deliberately and inexorably, it all gets done.

I know that it seems simple, but it’s a hell of a lot more effective than panicking or curling up into a fetal position under the desk.
