Bite Off More Than You Can Chew


This time Finn may have bitten off more than he can chew.

There’s a lot to be said for biting off more than you can chew.

I’ve done that lately, and although it has caused me to be just a little too busy to blog the way I used to, I’ve gotten so much done: thousands of words written, quarts of sweat shed working out, and so on.  I’m looking at what I’ve achieved and thinking, “How the hell did I get all that done?”

I was setting goals the other day, putting deadlines in my planner and so on, and for a brief moment I thought, ‘some of these dates are a little aggressive.’ And then I thought, ‘aggressive is good.’  If I set a goal that’s twice what any reasonable person would believe achievable, and I fall short by 10%, then I’ve still achieved 190%.  But if I hit the goal I’ve achieved the impossible.

Why don’t you give it a try?  Here are a few choice quotes to inspire you to bite off more than you can chew:

“The best sauce in the world is hunger.” ~Cervantes

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  ~Napoloeon Hill

“What is the beautiful if not the impossible.”  ~Gustave Flaubert

“Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.”  ~Thomas Edison

“If it was easy, anybody could do it.”  ~Old Proverb

“To infinity and beyond!”  ~Buzz Lightyear
