Getting complex tasks done

Sometimes, we want to do something and almost immediately we discard the idea because “it is too xxx” (where xxx could be complex, difficult, time consuming, etc).

Sometimes that is the case and it is OK. Then again, did we really assessed it was too [insert]? Or was it that it was easier to use the excuse to avoid doing it?

By giving in so easily, we lose opportunities, we limit ourselves and eventually we convince ourselves we are not good for anything.

Have you thought about breaking the task, goal, activity, etc, into smaller parts and then focus on that small part? Once complete, you then go into the next one. It is like walking. We can’t move instantly from one place to another, but we can get there one step at the time until we arrive to our destination. This approach can also allow us to build a ship or anything we set out minds to…

What is it you want to do and have been using the excuse “it is too [insert]”? How about breaking it into smaller do-able challenges?
