Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Great acts are made up of small deeds.
Good thoughts for any day.
The first is interesting, I have a tendency to do the hardest on my agenda first, after that it's easy sailing, I believe. Sometimes that doesn't work, becoming bogged down in the first task and the others get not done - I need to think about that a little.
Hm, I sort of looked at the first one as "save/do a bit here and there and before you know it, you have enough (time, money, etc.) to do what you really want to do". Maybe I need to think about it differently, but I got here by working on the pieces when it all happens at one time. Maybe time was all the bigger thing needed and I whiled away the time with the smaller ones? Yea, that's it.
Like Lilo, I tend to attack the hard things first and sometimes get stuck, ignoring the lighter tasks which become problems because of the negligence.
