*Feeling overwhelmed?
*Too much to do at work?
*Too much to do at home?
*Projects piling up?
*Too many social functions to attend?
*Paperwork piling up?

Then this “simple” concept is for you.

Simple to say, simple to talk about, not so simple to do.

Henry David Thoreau said it this way –

“Simplicity! Simplicity! Simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail.”



If you have never felt the sense of release that comes from decluttering, then you must take steps now to do just that! I have written articles and coached people on how to declutter and organize their physical space. I like to start my coaching with a new client by having them experience the huge benefit of physical decluttering. It is a tangible demonstration of the benefits that come by decluttering other parts of your life.

Once you experience the benefit of lightening your material load, it's time to focus on lightening your other loads.

Everything in your life takes up a certain amount of energy. The more you have packed your schedule, the more commitments and obligations you have, the more work projects you have taken on – the less energy reserve you will have to deal with unexpected crises, and the less time you will have for those unexpected, inviting opportunities.

Many people have the mistaken idea that a super busy, overbooked schedule is a sign of a successful person. What that person is missing, is the time to look up, look around and see key opportunities. This alone should be incentive for you to become very selective about how you invest your time and energy.

Successful people plan reserves into their schedule and into their lives. It reduces pressure and stress, and allows for you to available when God presents the truly best opportunities to you.
