There is an English folk advice “Don’t bite off more than you can chew!” It means to start a project that is more than you can finish.
I so do that. How about you?
Today, I will forgive myself for the projects I gave myself that were too big to finish in a day. All those crazy ideas I got into my head that I wanted to do and then didn’t finish because it turned out it would take a lot of time, and the whole thing got pushed aside to lurk in the corner as something I will get to eventually.
“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” is an old joke. The wisdom of it is to break things down into manageable bites.
Rather than decide I am going to sit down and write out all 1000 of the Glossika sentences in one sitting, much better to make a habit of writing 10 sentences a day.
I also forgive myself that I can’t get to EVERY project that my brain cooks up.
Don’t worry, brain. I have kept this blog that has all the ideas I want to get to stored for you. Just focus on the few tasks you are working on now, and let go of the rest.
(And if you want to take a bit of play time to make a monster flashcard holder, go for it. It’s not learning, it’s just having fun!)
