Being Fearless Enough To Change
Over the past few weeks I’ve reached a conclusion that in order to grow – personally and professionally – I will need to make significant changes to how I do certain things.
Change can be hard, and sometimes feels impossible. As hard it seems, I’m coming to realize this: if I always do what I’ve always done, I will always get what I’ve always had. And in some areas of my life, what I’ve always had is no longer acceptable.
As I think about what I want to change, what needs to change, and what I probably should change, I’m also recognizing this: thinking about it is one thing; starting it… quite another.
Spiraling through what is now becoming a long “to do” list, I reflect upon my cluttered and disorganized clients. They too want to make big changes: nearly to a person they long for a life without the chaos that clutter tends to bring. They are caught in a particular way of thinking, stubbornly so, and the result becomes what we know as the definition of insanity: doing the same thing, expecting different results. And so we get stuck.
