“…She does not eat the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:28b
Step 1 of how to eat an elephant, eat a frog! Mark Twain said:
Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.
The first chapter of the book One Bite At A Time covers this concept much more thoroughly, but the basic idea is to do the worst thing first. Instead of putting off the things you dread until the last minute, if you do them first then they are out of the way.
My goals this week will be to start off each work day tackling my most difficult projects first, then when I come home I will do the same, tackle the difficult chores first. This will be my first bite at that elephant, and it tastes a bit like frog legs.
