Don’t Boil The Ocean

It is unavoidable that you start to hear phrases and repeated quotes at the workplace. After a year at my workplace, I keep hearing the phrase Don’t Boil The Ocean.

This phrase or saying means not to undertake an impossible task or make it unnecessarily difficult. It is quite common we get pressented with tasks or work that appears to be impossible at first. It is normal to re-act that way at the beginning especially on something that seems daunting.

I found the best strategy to overcome this is to tackle the tasks in smaller chunks which leads to another saying “Eating The Elephant One Bite At A Time”.

Taking baby steps can often lead to clarity on the tasks ahead and allow you to plan your next steps.

So, the next time you are presented with a challenge, start small and don’t be paralysed by fear.

Till my next post!
