“Never again clutter your days or nights with
so many menial and unimportant things
that you have no time to accept
a real challenge when it comes along.
This applies to play as well as work.
A day merely survived is no cause for celebration.
You are not here to fritter away your precious hours
when you have the ability to accomplish so much
by making a slight change in your routine.
No more busy work.
No more hiding from success.
Leave time, leave space, to grow.
Not tomorrow!”

– Og Mandino

“Never again clutter yo…

Free Your Mind


Freeing my mind involves managing the space around me.  I do not like a lot of clutter or piles of STUFF:  Paper clutter, clothes that need to be folded and put away, emails and telephone calls that need to be returned.  I strive to be organized and committed to a daily routine.  I was doing very well, but something happened to throw me off course.  Instead of trying to retrace my steps and waste energy trying to figure out what broke my stride, I am moving forward to getting things back in order.  First order of business, tackle the piles that I can physically see!  If I can relieve the negative stimulation caused by seeing the physical clutter, I think it will greatly improve my mental state of being.

I keep getting an electronic reminder of my goal to have my spring cleaning completed by March 31st.  Unfortunately, because I haven’t been as active towards attaining the goal, I find the ‘friendly reminder” quite annoying!  It is time to implement a new strategy that will give me small successes to celebrate.  Since I do not have an entire day or any other huge block of time to complete the task – I will do 30 minutes a day until the task is completed.  I put this strategy into play yesterday, and it was a wonderful feeling to see how much that I was able to accomplish in 30 minutes.  Stop being so hard on yourself and break down that daunting task to 30 minutes a day.  You’ll see progress, and you will be motivated to move forward until the task is completed!
