How to eat an ELEPHANT!

The answer: One bite at a time.

This old saying is very good business advice.  Nevertheless it doesn’t say anything about how to deal with the feeling of being overwhelmed. Most people feel HORRIBLE when they are overwhelmed with information. Its a very common reaction to panic and to stress out, and even quit.  I have heard from very talented entrepreneurs that the feeling of being overwhelmed is actually nothing but a GREAT thing.

I am at many times in my life feeling overwhelmed. For example:

Right Now in my life I am in the process of :

  1. Buying a House
  2. Doubling the Size of One of My businesses ( Martial Arts School in Naples,  Fl: Third Law Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu)
  3. Working of Social Media Marketing
  4. Training for this seasons tournaments in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  5. Launching websites or improving websites like this one
  6. Getting done a To-Do List that is 200 items long
  7. And much much more….but I don’t want to bore you to death

The overwhelming feelings come from mentors in different areas that are achieving so much more than me and me trying to keep up with the knowledge being thrown at me. SO WHAT TO DO….

I would be a liar if I told you that I knew a sweet simple answer to this. The answer I know is:

  • SLEEP WELL!!!
  • WORK LIKE CRAZY!!!
  • EAT WELL!!!
  • HIRE COMPETENT PEOPLE AND MAKE THEM WORK LIKE CRAZY!!!
  • SPEND MONEY LIKE CRAZY TO GET THINGS DONE ASAP!!!

In other words…BE CRAZY and eat the elephant with a group of people under your supervision like if you were in an ” Eating Contest ” and buy any utensils that will speed off the process of eating the elephant. The reason I mentioned to EAT and SLEEP in the list is because even though I go without sleep often enough, I have learned to understand when hunger and sleep deprivation are affecting my judgment and often making me make a bigger deal about a situation than it really is. Nevertheless I really recommend you sleep and eat well.
