Tip of the Week: Think Small


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

Think Small.
How many times have you tried to change something about yourself, only to fail? Maybe you succeeded for a while, only to slide back into your old ways. Chances are it wasn’t what you wanted to change but how you tried to change that was the problem. People who don’t succeed at making changes often fail because they try to make too great a change too quickly – they try to “eat an elephant” all in one bite. Try taking smaller bites as in one step, one task, one measure, to achieve your overall goal.
