How to Eat an Elephant


How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

In planning my epic motorcycle trip things just slip off the tongue so easily like, “I’m going to take a road trip on my motorcycle around the country”. As my departure is getting closer (it’s Tuesday 7/10/12) I started feeling nervous and thinking of how dangerous this trip actually is, I struggled with it for a couple of days and even considered not going or driving my truck. I needed to make a decision so I forced myself to sit down and try to see what parts of the trip are of concern.  I dissected the first part of the trip to each exact routes, rest stops and my overnight accommodations I suddenly felt like my plans were not too ambitious and if I stay focused on each small portion. Also I sat down with my brother Rodolfo who is an independent insurance broker and figured out what I would do for health insurance.

I think this may be the case for a lot of people looking to make something big happen, I know I just went through the exact same thing with leaving my job to take this trip and in the end the paths that are more challenging are more rewarding.
