Happy Spring - although I think the calendar already thinks it's April, what with all the rain showers of the last few days, right?
Well, I've been at it again (still!) - you know me: reading! And, yet again, I want to share what I think is one of the best books I've ever read on success, happiness, fulfillment - you name it and it's here! Why do I do this? It's interesting! We always have some goals we are striving for and always looking for the short-cut - it's in our culture! So, the get-thin-quick diet; the quick-fix exercise program; the path to the Fountain of Youth ...
In my case, professionally, it's in ways to help you, my dear clients and friends, realize your goals of organization and productivity. Then, you're able to realize a more stress-free and peaceful existence. Wahoo!
The gist of "The Slight Edge," by Jeff Olson, is that by making small changes, bit by bit, you can accomplish your dreams and without as much angst and tension as jumping in full-footed might cause. So, think of it like this, my organizing buddies:
Try "The Slight Edge" on for size and let me know what you think. I'm hoping you'll be able to pull out several items that absolutely ring true for you on your organizational or time-management journey!
Here's to all the baby steps and still making it to the finish line!
"Consistently repeated Daily Actions + Time = Inconquerable Results."
(Jeff Olson, The Slight Edge)
Yep - just like we've been talking about: small steps each day and by the end of the week you've made great progress! Carry on!
Please put this on your calendar for next week and try to UNPLUG for just 24 hours!
There is real science to show that we have become so addicted to the Internet that we are losing the ability to even converse intelligently with folks if we have to find more than 140 characters! Let alone find some face-time - and I don't mean on a screen of any size, but eyeball-to-eyeball! The "Allure of the Instantaneous" and the constant connectedness is causing accidents (walking and driving!), sleep deprivation, increased blood pressure and depression.
Prove to yourself that this isn't you: turn it all off for just 24 hours, I implore you!
