“I’ve made a dent in my big homework assignment. Time for a short break.” 「大きな課題を少し進めたからちょっと休憩にしよう。」


A big job is like a mountain of dirt that you have to remove. When you’re working on it, it’s hard to see that you’re making any progress. But after a while, you can see a difference. There’s a dent in the side of the mountain. It’s not a huge change, but you can see that you’ve made progress.
