How To Eat An Elephant

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

-Mark Twain
1835-1910, Writer

Nothing profound or new in this one… but it’s a great reminder. With so much on my plate lately, it was perfect timing for me. Stated another way – “How do you eat an elephant?” Well, I believe it was the great Mike Litman that first told me that the only way to tackle those tough tasks, or ‘eat that elephant’ was of course… one bite at a time.
