How to Eat an Elephant

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

What does that have to do with Capturing Magic memories?  Well, the mountain of magical photos and memories I have sometimes seems like an elephant on my hard drive.  I want my family to be able to relive those magical moments, but eating an elephant is overwhelming.

So I’ll take General Abrams advice to heart and do it one bite at a time.  To me that means one layout a day.  An entire Disney trip is overwhelming, but one layout today is quite doable.  Maybe not everyday, and I don’t keep score (I don’t get behind), but I just continue to strive for one layout each day.

I’ve used this strategy before, but I stopped over a year ago.  Now I am starting again, and I am off to a great start:

How about it?  Can you make 1 layout today?  Maybe just find the photos.  And make the layout tomorrow.  But do something every day.  Before you know it you will have eaten an elephant.
