One step at a time

How do you climb a mountain?
One step at a time.

How is everything going to get done?
One task at a time.

How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time.

How do you manage a life that overwhelms you?
One step at a time.

Do the next thing. After you get done with the next thing, then worry about the thing after that. Nobody can take 2 or 3 or 50 steps simultaneously. Worrying about every step will drown you when you can only take the next step.

Break the overwhelming vagueness of everything up into steps and then work through the everything,
One step at a time.

This is what I’ve been having to tell myself and my wife lately as we work through the overwhelming life changes that are going on. What actions do you take to make the overwhelming parts of life more manageable?

  1. I try hard to live in the moment. No should haves, would haves, could haves. take life moment by moment and know that you can only do your best as you see it AT THE TIME. That may change after a while, but you are responding to what is presently going on in your life. Trust in your heart and your instincts. if you have clear, honest intentions things WILL work out for the best.
