“We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once.”

~Calvin Coolidge

It is easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of projects, meetings, and other work we face every day.  Our smart phones, iPads, and laptops just make it more intense, bringing new demands to us wherever we are.  Not to mention the tasks and projects in our personal lives!  Whew!  When it all gets a bit too crazy, I like to remember today’s quote, take a deep breath and do one thing right now.  That action often is just what I need to regain perspective and feel a bit more in control.

One thing at a time – done well.  And then the next.  And then the next.
