Not eating endangered species. Rather, addressing elephant-sized problems, projects and challenges in life.
So easy to say, so easy to chuckle about and so easy to hear.
How do you each an elephant?
With a very large fork. Sometimes a pitch-fork, to toss aside that which should be discarded, set aside or left behind.
Takes precious time. We seem to never have enough, yet we all have so many unaccounted-for hours every week.
If we kept track of every minute we would see graphically what we know deeply – we waste time, waste opportunity – avoiding use of either fork or pitch-fork or distracting ourselves with worthy pursuits, but those worthy pursuits take time we ought to be using to deal with that elephant.
