Ideas Without Implementation Are Dead

Okay, I admit it. I'm an idea girl. But I'm also a get-it-done girl. Which means when it comes to getting somewhere I want to go, I'm 2 for 3. 

Because inbewteen ideas and execution is this little annoying thing called planning. Planning is not my strong suit. Mapping things out is not something I enjoy. I find it tedious and quite difficult to break down my vision into bite sized, actionable pieces. 

Know your weakness? Check.

Anne Lamott wrote this amazing book called Bird by Bird. It's about writing (and life) and the title comes from an experience she had growing up in school. She had been assigned a project on birds and was overwhelmed. Her dad told her to take it "bird by bird" and when she did that, it changed everything. 

It's like they say, "when eating an elephant, take one bite ate a time".
