Make Room For Something Amazing

Last night, I was having trouble sleeping. I picked up my copy of "Simple Abundance a Daybook of Comfort and Joy" by Sarah Ban Breathnach and it flipped open to the entry for May 16.  Before I could turn to the correct date, the following paragraph caught my attention.
There is an ancient metaphysical law that says if we desire more abundance in our lives we must create a vacuum to allow ourselves to receive the good we seek.  How can more good come into our lives if there is no room for it?  The way we create the vacuum is by giving away what we no longer need or desire but what can serve others.
Initially, I thought, "Wow, if I was a residential organizer I would send this out to everyone in my database.  Too bad it has nothing to do with organizational consulting for businesses."  Then I realized it has everything to do with business organizing. 
  • If my office is full of clutter and useless paper, I cannot find important things or stay focused on the work that matters for today.
  • If my schedule is full of clients that are no longer my "ideal" client, I am too busy to pursue the business that will be my company's future. 
  • If I am involved in too many organizations and they are not aligned with my own goals, I am too busy promoting other people's goals to work to on my own.
  • If my to-do list is too long, I lose sight of which items are mission critical.
Will you join me this week in resolving to create a little bit of vacuum in our lives?   I am finally going to take a major item off of my 2009 goals list and park it on my 5 Year Plan.  I can write a book any time, but there are amazing things happening today that deserve some space in my mind and in my life.
If you are comfortable sharing, I'd love to hear your stories of how you are creating a vacuum to make room for greater good in your life.  Send me an email at [email protected].

What I'm Reading . . .

  • "Raising Financially Fit Kids", Joline Godfrey
    Common sense ideas and insight into raising kids who are wll-prepared to manage their own finances as young adults.
  • "The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are to Where You Want To Be" by Jack Canfield
    This book really got me excited about pursuing my goals and growing my business. There is a heavier emphasis on materialism than what I am comfortable with, but overall this is an inspiring book.
  • "The Organized Executive", by Stephanie Winston
  • "No B.S. Time Management for Enterpreneurs" by Dan Kennedy
