One Bite at a Time
I received an email yesterday from a reader who said that he didn't want to set large goals because he was afraid he might fail. Large goals are manageable if you focus on the step-by-step process of achieving them. I believe the mistake that many people make is that they focus on the goal and not the objectives of what it takes to get there. The objectives are the little things. One of my favorite quotes is by the Rev. Dr. Robert Schuller which says, "Yard by yard life is hard but inch by inch it's a cinch." If you focus on the little things, the large things will take care of themselves. After all, isn't that the way to eat an elephant-one bite at a time?
