Projects are like…

sandwiches.

The bigger they are, the smaller bites you need to take out of them each time.

Trying to take a huge bite out of a large, crusty, fully stuffed demi-baguette can really hurt and tears up the roof of your mouth in the process (just trust me on this).

Trying to get too much done too quickly on a project can leave you feeling much the same.

Take your time though, and the whole process looks a lot less intimidating. Taking small bites out of your project/sandwich is quick, easy and gives you momentum – see The importance of the quick win.

As many procrastinators know, the first bite is the hardest – but that doesn’t mean it has to be the deepest.
