Overwhelming challenge

When you feel overwhelmed it’s easy to give up. Yet it’s just as possible to take action.

If a thousand jobs must be done, doing one of them doesn’t feel like much. Yet it is something, and an important something.

To work through an overwhelming challenge, you have to start somewhere. So do that, start somewhere.

From a perspective of inaction, the weeds seem to be growing faster than you can pull them. Yet as soon as you start pulling, you realize that is not the case, that you’re making progress.

No matter how overwhelmed you may be, you have a choice. You can make the progress you’re able to make, or you can become even more overwhelmed.

Pull the first weed, travel the first mile, make the first call, write the first sentence. And transform the feeling of being overwhelmed into genuine empowerment.

— Ralph Marston
