Pro Tip: Filling A Bucket, One Bite At A Time

If your work requires “filling a bucket”, meaning you have a quota to make daily, can be a little daunting. The old metaphor of eating an elephant one bite at a time is helpful here. Break your task down into small increments, that way your task isn’t so big. This applies to anything in work or life. We often look at something in totality but if we take it in segments it works out better for us. Work smart, not hard I always say.

  1. When I was younger had jobs where finish no problem. A friend told me not be gung-ho about getting the job done quick. Boss would expect it all the time and give more work. This was working in construction. Did not take long to master the art of pacing myself.

    Yet when I start a task it becomes a mission, no matter about the time and effort. Even on the PC, when thinking all set. Then whatever it is a task became a quest. Times spent 24 hours figuring it out. Now I go with the flow.
