you don't need to see your end destination to reach there

As we are going through yet another change in our life we moved to our new home & started preparing our old home ready to put on market for rent. I used to get overwhelmed with amount of work it is involved in moving into new home & preparing things for all that is involved. I was admiring hubby's ability to keep calm in chaotic situation, when so many balls up in the air how does he stays calm & not buckle under pressure. he shared with me good technique on how not to get overwhelm, & Now I am following it & that is making me so relaxed about all this uncertainty & change life brings in our life. his trick is his comparison with car headlights with which you can just see 100 feet on the road & if u just keep on driving that 100 feet with headlight eventually you will be able to reach your end destination without able to see your end destination. I loved his comparison & now following it to T don't have to worry about end goal just keep on doing my part of what I have to do that particular day things get done. Slowly & steadily we are in much better shape in settling in our home & also cleaned up our old home so that agent can do their part of showing it to clients. with this moving I get so much feeling of acomplishment, every time one room is organized it feels great.

Oh yes to this one!  Have a list of things that have to get done to reach the end goal and then just work your way through the list one step at a time.  It also means you can see the jobs you can give to someone else if you need to.  And that feeling of accomplishment when you cross something off the list

Asha, as usual you advice comes just at the right time for me.  I have been thinking too far ahead, will slow down and just do the next 100 feet (few days). Your hubby is a wise man indeed.
