Question:"How do you eat an elephant?"
Answer: "One bite at a time"
A silly little expression but very appropriate for our business and life in general. Many times people get "paralyzed" when confronted with what may seem to be an insurmountable task. The "paralysis" can keep them from getting started, which is a guaranteed prescription for failure.
When faced with what seems to be an "insurmountable task" just get started! Don't worry whether or not you are doing the right things first... waiting to figure out what is the right thing will never get the job done! Better to start and re-direct then never start at all!
