Who else is an Anne Lamont fan?
If you are perhaps scrolling through this blog avoiding something you need to do... or stuck knowing what the next steps are... or, if you're like me and sometimes you care too much about the scope of a big project and get paralysed because you care too much and don't want to screw it up...
If that's you, then perhaps you need to read this too:
Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he’d had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother’s shoulder, and said, “Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”
