Put Things In Order

Is life a little out of control?  Do you feel a sense of chaos around you? Are you having to back track to find things?  Have you figured out from where all this overwhelming mayhem may have originated?  

A word for this week is ORGANIZATION.  It means to put things in order.  It is the opposite of chaos which means disorder or confusion.  

The purpose of organization is to enable common people to do uncommon things.  Becoming organized is more than just a project.  It is a practice.  It is a discipline that empowers you to accomplish more in less time and with less effort.  

Edmund Burke once said, “Good order is the foundation of all things.”  When you become organized you are less stressed and get more rest.  You are more productive and can even be available to nurture healthier relationships.  You are even able to carve out time for your own personal care and development.  Being organized is a solution where everyone benefits. So, why do you find it hard to initiate?

Years ago, I struggled with this idea of being organized especially with my time.  I had a mindset that believed being organized with my schedule would obligate me and not allow me freedom to do other things that may arise.  Unfortunately, this strategy was not working in my favor.  Frequently I felt overwhelmed trying to “get it all done.” You see, I wanted to be able to do it all. This impossible plan left me feeling unfulfilled and never being able to measure up.  There were always painful compromises.  I would either get everything done for work and neglect my home.  Or I would get things done for my family and frustrate others who depended upon my gifts, skills, talents, and services.  It was a never-ending cycle of guilt, intimidation, and in essence hopelessness.

When I decided to put things in order, my life changed exceedingly. It was like a 180 degree turn around.  I realized I had choices of what I could do with my time.  I had to value my time and recognize it’s worth.  If I did not use it wisely and tell it what to do, others would do it for me.  That scenario was not producing favorable results.  The time had come when I needed to make the change.  Scheduling and organizing pleasantly gave me my time back.  I was able to truly “get it all done,” those things what were important to me that is.  What was not important, I simply did not “obligate” myself.  Taking control and putting things in order was, in fact, liberating.

I want to encourage you to put things in order.  Today, start doing something that is so daring that you can’t even believe you are doing it- get organized! You can do it.  And you will be glad that you did.  

 Here’s to a more fulfilled life.   Keep growing and keep going.  It’s a good time to be you!

Peace and Joy,
