Download: Divide and Conquer
You have a lot of project piling up both at home and at the office. The inbox keeps piling up. You’ve got a ton of unanswered DM’s. Your boss just dropped a request for a 47 page report due in 2 weeks. There’s a huge stack of laundry in the bathroom and you have bills from an entire month that needs paid. It’s all so overwhelming! How do you to even begin?
Simply, that’s how.
If each day you do a small pile of laundry, answer a few DM’s, and come up with a consistent plan for checking and responding to your email inbox, things will get better. Predictably.
Instead of waiting until the last moment and attempting to crank out all 47 pages of that report that’s due in two weeks, why not focus on doing 3-4 pages per day instead?
The Sistine Chapel took a very long time to paint, but Michelangelo finished the famously commissioned task. Stroke by stroke, and piece by piece, the Sistine Chapel as well as numerous other famous and historical things were created.
One brush stroke at a time. One block at a time. One board at a time.
But when we look at such creations and marvel at their great accomplishments and complexities, nobody says “Gosh Paul, that sure doesn’t look difficult. They did that piece by piece”.
Most people only possess a surface level appreciation for things.
They don’t get to enjoy life’s intricate journey like you do as a creator.
The world’s top achievers know that when you want to conquer a thing, you divide it.
