One Bite

What’s the best way to eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

If you want to complete a project but it feels daunting to you, or you think you don’t have time, just start doing it, even one little chunk at a time.

Keep this approach going, and you WILL finish whatever is on your plate. Because you can’t “do” a project anyway, you can only “do” the next step.

And as Mark Twain put it, “the secret to getting started is getting started.”
