How do you eat an Elephant..?

Eating and Elephant (A big goal or lifestyle change) we have to break it down in "bitesize" pieces, so that when the year starts getting momentum, that you don't feel as if you're loosing control. Each segment has it's own procedures and planning behind it and as long as you keep on "failing forward". You will reach your goal, even if you stumble over a bump or two in the road. It's the contrasting situations in life that makes you appreciate the end results!

Society has created the principle that everything has to happen "fast"...

I've heard so many people say, "Rome is not build in a day" or my favorite one is: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time..."


Society has created the principle that everything has to happen "fast"... Fast food, Instant oats or porridge, Instant 2 minute noodles, Instant pudding... and the list goes on. Our phones now have to have "fast chargers" and we go on fad "rapid weight loss" journeys.


Does some of this relate?


Our patience have grown so weak that we can't even stand in a que for longer than a minute before we start tapping our toe or checking our phone every couple of seconds or staring at the person behind the counter in the hope that your stare would make them uncomfortable enough to assist the people in front of you faster... Or, when was the last time that you actually sat down and listened to your child's question or thoughts on something?


This time of the year is still nice, everyone is feeling the Christmas cheer, but this only last until we reach the 26th of December. I know in our house we already have talks on goals for the new year and what are we going to "tackle" as soon as we step into the first week of January 2022. What I know I've neglected each year was the "how"... It's easy to say I want to live healthier or I want to spend more time on a hobby... Have we sat down with the how? I know I've never did this before and every year starts the same way with the same sort of aim. "On your marks, get set... GO!"


But we rush into the year with no set plan and before we know it we've given up the healthy lifestyle or the promise of reading a new book every week or what ever you've set out and in most cases you have a short break during the winter school holidays and you kind of get yourself a bit fired up to last you until end of August, but then you start selling yourself the very "famous" story of "too little, too late". Yes?


We either set out goals too big and maybe sometimes unrealistic or big goals with not an equally big plan to keep us motivated. Or we set out goals with no plan and then we turn around at the end of the year and call it a failure. Why?

When you fail to plan, you plan to fail!

Eating and Elephant (A big goal or lifestyle change), you need to break it down in "bitesize" pieces, so that when the year starts getting momentum, that you don't feel as if you're loosing control. Putting it together, brick-by-brick, once piece at a time. Each segment has it's own procedures and planning behind it and as long as you keep on "failing forward". You will reach your goal, even if you stumble over a bump or two in the road. It's the contrasting situations in life that makes you appreciate the end results more! As long as you keep moving forward.


Some people rather "suffer in silence", but I know I like to receive acknowledgement or motivation and that is why I've started my first 2022 campaign "Lets eat THAT elephant together!" We can encourage, listen, support and down right push you till you've overcome each hurdle. So, I've decided to make it interesting to see how many people we can share this with? The top 5 people with the highest amount of shares will receive a pamper package and the bonus of meeting a group of people whom will keep each other motivated and supported.


At the end you must always remember... KISS!


K - Keep,

I - It,

S - Simple,

S - Silly


Stay Strong! You've got this!
