When I look at how much I must do (and how behind I am) in grading and other things, I could feel overwhelmed and stay stuck in that feeling. I see the enormity of the task instead of the small parts I know I can finish.
When I choose to tackle what’s ahead of me, little by little, I make progress. Sometimes, we shouldn’t pay any attention to the big picture. We should focus on a small task, then the next one, then the next one. Soon, we’ll finish, and we’ll stay happy and at peace. We keep plugging along, little by little.
