How do you eat an elephant?

The best advice I was ever given when feeling overwhelmed with ever-growing workloads was the answer to “How do you eat an elephant?”.

Easy, you say, “one bite at a time”.

Well, that’s one way to look at it, we all know that chunking tasks works. The advice I got was actually this, “don’t, eat an orange”.

The point here is, sometimes you need a minute away from the task, while still being productive.

I like to do something else creative, some art or craft is great to keep creative momentum while clearing away the stress of your workload so you can return refreshed, clear and reinvigorated.
