How to Eat an Elephant (Instructions Inside)

“How’s the progress going on your big project?”, I ask.

“Well, I’m not really working on it right now”, she tells me.

“I’m just doing my work. Taking care of life, you know.”

Oh yes, I sure know.

“Basically I’ve put it out there, so it really is a matter of the right person seeing the idea and picking it up”.

Hang on a second.

That’s not going to work.

She’s the instigator, the inventor, and most definitely she’ll have to be the motor behind it.

Otherwise, it’s not going to happen.

But her project is huge.

It’ll take many years to build and realise.

And that’s a problem, because when something is that big, it looks like a mountain you’ll never be able to climb.

But if you think about it, just putting one foot in front of the other will eventually get you to the top.

Like they say: The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.

Not that I recommend we start eating elephants, but you get the idea.

So when you have a huge project and you just keep procrastinating on it, like we all do, here’s how to keep moving forward:

Identify activities that you know will keep you moving.

Make them small steps, things you can do in 20 minutes or so.

So small that you couldn’t live with yourself if you’d put off even those tasks.

Then make a commitment to spend 20 minutes each working day.

No excuses.

You can find 20 minutes a day, if the project is important enough.

Commit that time.

Implement.

Track your daily accomplishment on a calendar.

Keep moving.

Feel good each time you get to mark another x on your progress sheet.

And, let me know when your project is finally done and live.

You’ll get there.

On another note:

I’ve started preparations for the next LEAP.

And it’s going to be about how to earn good ‘n solid cash, with your art and the upcoming holiday season.

So stay tuned for that.
