Then you should ride that elephant until you fear it no more!My boss at my last job used to say to me when I was faced with a big project "How do you eat an elephant?". The answer of course was always "One mouthful at a time".
But - what do you do if you fear the elephant.
Some common problems with lists that cause resistance are:
Incompleteness: If you haven't captured everything then you can't trust your list to have absolutely everything.
Non-doable actions: If your actions aren't the very next step to take then it becomes difficult to choose one to do.
Hope this helps.
