Eating an elephant

By Lafe Taylor

Have you ever been overwhelmed by problems? or lost in a conundrum of difficult decisions or tasks? Often times our lives, our schedules, our finances and sometimes our businesses become so overwhelming that we don't know what to do. Life in general is constantly vying for attention and every problem that arises appears to be the most important. The sheer volume of problems and difficulties we face can be like eating an elephant on a full stomach.

When you find yourself being overtaken by problems take a step back and rationally assess your situation.  It's easier said than done at times, but don't let the emotional stress of your current difficulties get the better of you. Instead of trying to tackle all of your problems at once, breakdown your problems into smaller more manageable tasks.

Take control of your problems one task after another. The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Focus on the bite in front of you and slowly watch the elephant disappear.
