My husband and I have a quote that we keep in mind often from President Thomas S. Monson.
"Life is hard by the yard, but by the inch it's a cinch!"
There is so much in this world that overwhelms and stresses us. At times we tend to look at everything all at once as a whole rather then taking it one step at a time.
For my husband and I this is a struggle at times. It's hard when you have so much thrown at you all at once that it is hard to focus. But when we keep in mind each task one at a time, then we are able to accomplish more and we are a lot happier. I am so grateful for this reminder daily to take things "inch by inch."
