On a daily basis I pay a lot of attention to the minute details of other peoples' lives. The only reason I am able to stay relaxed enough to help anyone feel more organized is because I can also see the big picture. This is so important: there is no way we are going to be able to sift through the day-to-day junk if we don't know why we're doing it. That's why I often encourage people to picture the IDEAL outcome and hold that in their minds and hearts as they accomplish the necessary steps along the way.
Today I am writing to let you know that I also have a big picture idealistic vision that fuels me as I do this work, and it's so beautiful and delicious that I want to share it with you.
Imagine a world in which nobody is stressed out. I'm not saying it's a world in which nothing bad ever happens, but what if everyone wakes up each morning embracing the day, finding everything they need exactly when they need it, making excellent use of their time, space, and heading to a dream job that speaks to their hearts and makes the world better for others as well? What if all the little things that bring us down and leave us swearing at each other in traffic each morning were completely eliminated?!
I don't operate under the assumption that I can work with every stressed out or disorganized person this lifetime, but I think we have to recognize that every little bit of peace and clarity and simplicity does more than just make us feel a little better for a minute. When we are "organized", we are able to do our best work, and live our best lives. The world loves us when we are at our very best because we make it a better place!
That's why I'm so glad that you're reading this, and I hope that not only will you implement at least one tiny strategy today to eliminate some of your stress, but also that when things start to feel unmanageable for you, reach out for some support. As an organizer I hold space so that your ideals can come out and play. I can do this over the phone, even via email. 773.612.6121, or email Madelyn@idealspaceconsulting.com. Please share this with a friend because it only one person at a time that we change the world, and I would love to hear your comments about your own vision for a better world.
