Eating an Elephant

I received this message today via e-mail. It speaks to just about anything one sets out to do so I thought I would share it. I once used the idea to tackle sorting boxes of family pictures…the day came when the project was done. Jesus said you can move mountains. With a shovel and this philosopy, one day the mountain will be moved. I have other things going on in my life right now that could use this wisdom:

WRITNG A BOOK IS LIKE EATING AN ELEPHANT.
ONE MUST EAT A LITTLE BIT EACH DAY.

Interesting that its author uses the elephant to make his point…until the elephant is eaten, his just sits around in your living room.
