One-at-a-time

Here are the directions to drive to my workplace from my house.

Take Lützowplatz and Karl-Heinrich-Ulrichs-Straße to Kurfürstenstraße
500 m

Head west on Lützowstraße toward Lützowplatz
170 m

Turn left onto Lützowplatz
170 m

Turn left onto Karl-Heinrich-Ulrichs-Straße
180 m

Continue on Kurfürstenstraße. Drive to Kurfürstendamm
3.6 km

Turn right onto Kurfürstenstraße
850 m

Turn left onto Nürnberger Straße
270 m

Turn right onto Tauentzienstraße
290 m

Continue onto Kurfürstendamm
2.0 km

Make a U-turn at Lewishamstraße
170 m

You will find my workplace will be on the right.

Presented this way, it is nearly impossible for anybody who doesn’t know Berlin to follow these directions. Yet, if the same instructions are presented one-at-a-time while driving using Google Maps, anybody can follow them.

Our to-do lists are intimidating to look at. It can be overwhelming to see everything there is to do, and this can prevent us from getting started. The key is to break these actions down and knock them out one-at-a-time
