Just take it bird by bird 

"my older bother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. He was close to tears... surrounded by binder paper and penicils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said "Bird, by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird".
