# 147 steps to tackle a BIG project

Do you have a BIG project you need to work on? Is the project as big as a mountain? Is the project so big that you haven’t even started on it? Is the project so big that you are having trouble sleeping at night?

Did you delete all of your recipes and now you have to re-enter them into your computer? Do you have a mess of weeds in your garden? Did you want to clean out your basement? Were you going to learn a new computer program?

Does the BIG project taunt you?

*“Hey there! You will never be able to get started on this project. I am as big as a mountain. You will never be able to do this! Go read a book! Why don’t you take another nap! Eat all the cookies! Take another bath! Read weird stories on the internet! Check your e-mail again!”*

This will shut the Big Project up.

That is really the only way.

**Believe you can.**

**Then do it. **

Enter the recipes into the computer, pull the weeds, clean out your basement and learn the new computer program. Enter one recipe, pull one weed, open up one box, read one section of the computer program.

**Just start.**

The project won’t get finished, while you are in the bathtub, taking a nap, or eating cookies.

**The only way to finish is to start. **[ Would you like to tweet that? Here is the link if you would like to. tweet tweet ]

**What is your big project today?**

I am trying to learn a new computer program. My brain feels like mush. I am only on step 47. One hundred more steps to go, I think. I will add or subtract steps as needed.
