How Would You Like Your Elephants?
Basically, they suggest that the choice is having it all or having enough, which in Juggling Elephants terms means, do you want the elephants super-sized or regular size? Regardless of ambition, goals or purpose, everyone has elephants-those tasks, issues, goals or even dreams that weigh on you physically, mentally, emotionally or physically. And they will keep coming throughout your life in both work and your personal endeavors.
We do have to decide how big of an elephant we are willing to try and juggle-and what the consequences are of juggling one elephant over another.
