Twice in the last five years I have moved my business headquarters or home. Each time led me to the uncomfortable awareness that I was a pack rat. Well, at least more of one than I wanted to be. I found that my closets, bookshelves and drawers were filled with mementos and decorations that didnt really matter much to me or my welfare. I had kept books that I never intended to read or refer to again, files taht were now obsolete or useless and knickknacks that were not special to me or my family. So what? Well, today I have boxed up for donation more than 140 books, 30 tape albums, dozens of assorted items all to be sent to a local charity thrift store. And the sense of liberation I feel is extaordinary! Not only that but I have a clearer sense of the real priorities in my business than before the purge. When was the last time you cleaned out your desk, closet or attic? Every time we send out the old, we make room for the new. Something wating for its time and space to come into your life. Why not make room for it today?
