“Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success-or are they holding you back?” W.Clement Stone.
“One must live the way one thinks or end up thinking the way one has lived.” Paul Bourget
“Never underestimate the effect of clutter on your life.” Karen Kingston
There are many books and shows out there about simplifying your life and how important it is. They are right! Everything we do, own or commit to takes energy so it is imperative that we are careful what we add to our lives. The fact is though, some of the most precious parts of our lives are actually huge complications. For example when you get married it complicates both of your lives. Now instead of just considering your wishes you have someone else to consider as well. Not to mention all the stuff you both bring into one house! When you decide to have a child that’s another big sweet complication. These are all choices we made that add complexity to our lives. When you start writing a book or creating a new business you add complexity. For most of us the benefits of these complications far out way the energy spent. They are worth it! An important part of having an extraordinary life is to add complexity selectively. Make sure you get rid of the energy drains in all areas of your life so that you are free to focus on what matters to you. Now if there is a bit of clutter around you know it comes from projects you are passionate about. If there are complexities you have chosen them instead of the other way around.
