Break Your Day to Bite Size Pieces

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that one look at your schedule and you feel like you ready to jump back to bed instead of take on the world? But the day will seem more manageable if we take it one moment at a time. Think of a jigsaw puzzle. When you dump a thousand pieces on the table, it looks like a mess, an overwhelming impossibility. If we give up and put all the pieces back in the box, nothing happens. You start by finding the edge pieces, looking for corners, sorting by colour, and slowly the final picture begins to take shape.

If today looks like a five-thousand-piece puzzle, start small. jobs. Handle only this morning or this hour or the next five minutes. Your day may turn out to be an unexpected masterpiece.
