We are all faced with challenges that overwhelm us at first glance. But as Nelson Mandela tells us "Everything seems impossible, until it is done". So how do we transition from a mountain sized task to a pebble size task? We write the tasks down into microsteps. If the request for an 80 page report is sitting on our desk and we have a month to complete it, we could write four pages every day for 20 days. After each day we give ourselves a rewards such as a fancy tea or a walk around the neighbourhood to reflect on our accomplishment.
How do you get though tough projects?
