"Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win."

Jonathan Kozel

You have probably heard the saying, "He bit off more than he can chew" in regards to someone taking on a task bigger than they can handle.  Jonathan Kozel had good advice on this very topic when he said, "Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win."

The things you do need to be important, but realistic.  You need to know that a task you choose can be completed.  You may need others help or you may need to learn something new to finish what you start.  The key is not overwhelming yourself with too much.

Sometimes is simply a matter of agreeing to do too many things.  People "know they can depend on you" so they dump everything in your lap.  That is fine if you in turn can delegate tasks to others, however, be sure what you keep to do yourself are "small enough to win".  Know that you can finish what you start.
