I like to reply people with, “I have 10,000 things to check from my list” when they asked me, how’s thing going?
Another colleague added, I check one item from my 10,000 things to check, but another 1,000 are queueing at the end of it.
This reminds me when the helper in the house I’m renting asked me after I came back from my holiday, she asked how did my day go?
My reply was I had to clear 10,000 things in my email.
And her response was, it’s okay, just shoot them one by one, you still count it, so it means it will be gone eventually.
That was an eye opener to me.
If you can count it, you’ll be able to finish it.
