You are trying to eat an elephant in one meal.
Trying to do too much in too short a time.
You aren’t chunking down your plans into achievable objectives and doable actions.
You are setting yourself up for failure.
You are getting more and more desperate every time you fail to reach a target that’s been set too high.
Set achievable goals
Be rigorous and realistic with your plans to achieve outcomes
Develop habits of steady measured progress
Elephant is being eaten
You are not stressing out or being overwhelmed by your task
You have negotiated realistic timelines
You have enrolled support for your project
Progress, not panic is being made
