If you are doing something like planning a shower, the details can really get to you. You want the food, the decorations, the gifts, the games all to be perfect. Then you start to feel overwhelmed by all that needs to get done.
That’s when you know you have forgotten the purpose of the project. You want to shower love on the person. And even if everything doesn’t get done or isn’t perfect, you can still fulfill that purpose.
We do this all the time with projects. Do you have any projects that you are feeling bogged down in details right now? Can you think of the big picture? The overall purpose?
Now how can you best achieve your purpose, without overwhelming yourself?
