#77 Chunk It Out

Good Morning!

When the task you’re working on seems too daunting, there is a handy thought processing and organizational planning tool you can use to complete your task without adding too much stress to your life.

It’s a short, sweet, easy to understand, and kind of awesome way of how to complete larger tasks with relative ease.

What you do is break down the task it in to its smaller “chunks” rather than trying to think about the entire process at once.

If you’ve ever taken music lessons this will be a familiar thing to you already. If you’re learning to play a new piece of music, you generally don’t practice the entire piece of music at once, you break it down in to smaller pieces called phrases and into even smaller pieces than that, called bars. You play these little chunks until you get good at each one and then move on to the next one, and so on, until you’re finished the entire piece.

The process of breaking down a huge task like cleaning an entire house from top to bottom is the same as learning to play a new piece of music.  Cleaning of the house is broken up into rooms, then then areas in each room, and then finally into the specific cleaning tasks themselves like, vacuuming, dusting, tidying and organizing, washing surfaces, drying, cleaning windows, etc.

So, the next you have a huge task to accomplish make a list of all the chunks you need to complete and then get started.

Thanks for reading (or listening) and have a great day!
