This week I'm linking up with KissinBlueKaren for Beyond the Books. This is a meme where we all answer a non-bookish question. It's always so fun to see everyone's answers and get a peak at the blogger beyond the books. This week's topic is - Best Advice I've Been Given.
The best advice I've ever been given comes from my dad which is funny because he's not really an advice kind of guy. He's incredibly smart with a wickedly sharp sense of humor and a strong idea of how things should be but he's not one to tell people what to do. Growing up we weren't very close but now he's probably one of my closest friends and we have lunch once a week.

When I was a teenager and going through a tough time feeling overwhelmed with a problem that I didn't think I could get through he listened to me whine one day and finally said, "You've got to stop looking at the big picture. Take it one day at a time and if you can't do that take it one hour at a time."
That advice has really stuck with me and is something I've applied to more than just time. Basically, if anything seems impossible break it up into small chunks until it becomes doable.
What was the best advice you've ever gotten?
