Chop into pieces

One small habit that I learnt many years ago and I think it plays a vital role in my life is to chop what you have to do into small pieces. What do I mean by that?

In your life, there are so many things to do or so many things you want to do. For example, you want to read lots of books in a year. Or, you may want to finish some projects at work. However, the sizes of those things might put you off. They look daunting so you can only think about doing them. You don’t actually do them. Why don’t you chop those things into small pieces and do them one by one?

I always do that. I want to read xx books but cannot concentrate on this mission every day. So, I might read a book for 5 minutes in the morning, then 10 minutes in the afternoon. I might spend 30 minutes on Saturday and another hour on Sunday. Before I know it, I finish the whole book.

When you chop things into small pieces, their sizes would not intimidate you. You will see things differently as it’s not too hard to finish one small things at a time.

Try it and let me know how you go.
