Words of Wisdom

I just noticed this in my career text book:
Words of Wisdom
Q: How do you eat an elephant? A: One bite at a time.

This is a saying about goal-setting, about how you should break your goal into manageable chunks. It is very straight-forward and understandable as the analogy is pretty accurate.

At the same time, I find it pretty funny. If you have never heard of this saying/riddle before and just randomly see this in your career text book, you'd be wondering "Why the heck is this in a text book?"
