Doing It All…Not!

Do It All TodayToday’s Berthaism: You don’t have to do it all today!

I know Bertha’s whisper-shouting this one to me today…I’m just starting a major project…it should take 8 weeks…I’m on day 2 and I’m feeling overwhelmed. I’m not sure about you…but when I’m overwhelmed…I tend to procrastinate.

So today’s message reminds…me…us…that we don’t have to look at the big picture all the time…just look at the next piece in front of us…do that task…then tackle the next one.

LOL…she just added to it…You don’t have to do it all today…but you do have to do something!

Well…guess I’m off to take action…even a small one.


I would love to hear how you take action when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

  1. I am starting a major project, too. What makes mine so hard, I-don’t-want-to-do-it. But, if I want to be continue or be more successful online, I have to. So, how did I handle it today? I slept about three hours in the middle of the day. No time, now.

    Guess what? I still have to do it… ALL! Maybe tomorrow will be a better day and I’ll come back then and tell you how I took action.

    Gee, I don’t wanna do it!

    • Oh…Mary…I feel your pain…and wish I’d had your nap! The technology can seem overwhelming…so Bertha would tell you to focus on the outcome…and how much it will benefit your business…and how much you’ll enjoy it when you’re finished…then…just do the littlest thing you can.

      Can’t wait for the update!

  2. Jane-
    You got this! One step at a time. My father was a long distance runner. He would often run 10 miles at a time. When he would run out of gas and feel overwhelmed with the trail ahead he would fix his eyes on a tree in the distance and tell himself, Just get to that tree! and once he got to that tree he would find another one. If you break up the course into segments and checkpoints you will find it easier to chew, so to speak. I believe in you Jane and am excited for you and Bertha!

    • Oh…Matt…you are my favorite cheerleader…Bertha may even lend you her pom-poms! Your story of your dad reminds me of my first long bike ride…70 miles…there was no way to the car except to keep pedaling…and I focused on the trail’s mile markers to keep me going. Thanks for your confidence and support! Oh…and thanks for visiting the blog!
