I’m currently in the midst of a particularly busy season.
If August was the sprint, this is the marathon. This is the part that feels overwhelming and exciting and where all the growth and anxiety and change happens.
This is the best and worst part.
I’m loving and hating it.
Without going into detail, mostly because I don’t have time, I just wanted to take a moment here in my personal space to say that I believe these big projects get accomplished one little choice and one little step at a time.
I heard this story about Desi Arnaz once and the huge piles of scripts and work he always had on his desk while he and Lucille Ball basically transformed modern television.
When asked how he got it all done, he simply said “One script at a time.”
In looking at some of the tasks ahead on the current project I’m embarking in (which is happening while all the other projects I’m involved in are still very much going and not relenting at all), it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or wonder how the hell it will happen. But down that way lies madness. And even worse, not getting it done.
So instead a trust in the magic and I trust in myself and I do each task one at a time.
I just get it done.
No time for complaints or judgement. There is time to listen, but that’s different. Time now is just to act. Soon will be to reflect.
But until reflection, it gets done one script and one step at a time.
