The Impossible, Massive, Heavy Task

“Little by little, one travels far.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

imagescxfexqrpHAVE YOU EVER HAD an impossible, massive, heavy task looming in front of you?

A task so important to you that the thought of not achieving it, was unbearable?

I have.

If you’re like me, it can paralyze you if you don’t deconstruct it into manageable pieces.

How to tackle an impossible, massive, heavy, looming task

  • Picture the final outcome. How does it feel? What are people saying about it?
  • What are the top 3 objectives/barriers you need to achieve/overcome?
  • List tasks under each objective/barrier to take you where you need to go.
  • Run it under the noses of people you trust, particularly those who think differently than you.
  • Tweak and modify your tasks.
  • Take them on, one step at a time and start with the hardest ones.

The smallest steps today can help you chip away at your task. Before you know it, momentum takes on a life of its own and you are well on your way.

Doing something is always better than doing nothing.

Are you facing a massive, heavy, looming task? What small step can you take today to get the ball rolling?

    Another great quote about this sort of thing is attributed to Lao-tzu: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

    Sometimes when hiking you can look back and realize how far you’ve come just taking steps.
