This post is pretty much a pep talk for myself… but I figure if you can get a little something out of it then maybe we can both win!
Perhaps you’re like me and you’ve got a list of things you want to accomplish. They could be personal goals, career ambitions, or things you’d like to get done around the house.
And… if you’re like me maybe that list is so long you don’t know where to begin so you just don’t begin at all. You get stuck in a rut.
There are a couple quotes that I’ve found and saved in a file that hopefully will help me get “unstuck”.
The first is from the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge who said:
“We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once.”
Yep. I need to quit being so paralyzed by the size of the list or the magnitude of some of the things on it and just pick something and get the ball rolling.
The second quote that’s been running through my thoughts is from Ford Motor Company founder, Henry Ford.
“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
Hopefully, these quotes get you thinking and inspired like they have me. I’ve already started mentally going through my list trying to decide which task I want to tackle first.
Doing so has lead me to remember something I’ve said to my kids often… although I don’t know who to attribute it to.
“There’s only one way to eat an elephant. One bite at a time!”
What’s your elephant… and are you gonna start on the trunk or the tail?
