It’s not always that we need to do more
But rather that we need to
focus on less.
Nathan W. Morris

And therein lies the rub.  Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed because we look at a big project and just don’t know where to begin.  The problem with big projects is just that….they are big.  When it’s overwhelming, it’s time to just look at one small thing and start there.  

You need to focus on less. If you’re cleaning out a cluttered room, start with a shelf.  Pick up one item on that shelf and then decided what to do with it.  Then pick up another item.  If you start small, it’s easier to keep going and before you know it, the shelf is cleared off. Focus on less.

By focusing on less, you can also celebrate more.  If you decide to declutter and focus on the whole room and only manage to get one shelf done, then you feel like nothing has been accomplished.  But if you want to declutter by starting with just one shelf in that room, when you’re done with your one shelf, you met your goal.  At that point, you can decide to do another shelf today or come back tomorrow and do another shelf.

You need to focus on less so you won’t feel overwhelmed.
