Motivation Monday ~ Eat the Elephant

 'member that expression "Keep it Simple Stupid"? Every once in awhile it would be helpful to hear that phrase before I tackle my next genealogical project. Am I alone in this? Or would a reminder here and there help you too?

Super Simple Tip #1: Eat the elephant one bite at a time. A hundred or so years ago (in another life) I taught time management skills in corporate settings. The most popular of my workshops was one about battling procrastination. There are many reasons we put things off, but BIG things tend to be #1 on the list of Things I Will Do Later. I can't possibly organize all my genealogy files in a single afternoon. But I could take one folder to the TV room with me this evening and sort the papers into two piles - Keep and Recycle.
