One’s beliefs and self-doubts can either inspire or inhibit them. Recently, I was reading a blog post posted on JohnChow.com. The post talked about the concept of thinking big. I am probably the first to admit that when looking at something I see the negatives before the positives. In other words, I think of what could go wrong before I’ve even tried and therefore had set myself up to fail before I’ve even started.
The funny thing is however; when I started this blog in 2009 I knew instantly that it was going to be a success. As I type that last sentence that feels a tad bit conceited on my part, but allow me to explain. Even back in 2009 when I started I was looking for a Cerebral Palsy resource that I would gain insight and understanding from regarding things that were going on in my own life for example at the time, unemployment. I wanted to see myself in my situation closely related to on the Internet and unfortunately my search was unfruitful. Therefore, the logical answer seemed to be create what I had envisioned and that is exactly what I did.
I think you can get trapped into looking solely at the big picture, to the point that it seems overwhelming. Overwhelming, almost to the point that it seems insurmountable, one thing that I’ve learned over the years by watching others and then figuring out how to implement this in my own life.
Making the Big Picture More Manageable
Sometimes we get so absorbed looking at the big picture that it is difficult to see how to get to the final intended result. But, by making the project more manageable and breaking it into smaller sections you still get the end result you wanted and probably the outcome would be better because you looked at this whole in smaller parts.
The weird part about this whole blogging thing is that I never saw it as one big thing. I saw it as each blog post would make up the collective whole of my blog. The point I’m trying to make, is don’t stop thinking big because you are afraid that the big picture is insurmountable. But rather, break it down into smaller parts which effectively will make it more manageable and less overwhelming, and as I said before the final product will probably be better in the end if you break it down into smaller parts.
If you have enjoyed this post I would like to know how you manage large projects. Are you the type of person to feel overwhelmed by the whole of the project or do you break it down into smaller parts?
