Daniela bought a watermelon recently.
I cut it in half to give it the taste test.
It was perfect.
I put both halves in the fridge to keep them fresh. One of them went fairly quickly; a team effort by the boys and I =) The other half sat in the fridge close to a week, untouched. That is, until Seth asked for some fruit. I thought what could be better, he likes watermelon and this should still be good. It was.
Daniela ended up cutting it in small pieces and put them into a plastic container. What do you think happened? That's right, it got eaten up in less than a day. All because of perception, really. What seemed like a big piece of watermelon was really just a bunch of smaller pieces.
Break down that big project, chore, report or activity that's standing in front of you, like Goliath standing in front of David. What's one step you can take to gain some momentum in the right direction? Do it. Don't get frustrated. Or do, that's ok. But don't let it keep you from taking action.
