Organizing the Inside – Day 304 Waiting For Perfect Conditions?

Whoever watches the wind will never plant. Whoever looks at the clouds will never harvest. Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NIV)

It’s difficult to find contentment when so much time is spent determining which obstacles justify not starting today. If you want to live a simpler life, it’s important to organize your environment to support your success. If you have things around the house or office that irritate you every time you glance at them, address them right away. Getting rid of those irritants is another step forward in the right direction.

First, put your intentions on notice that procrastination is no longer an option. If you feel stuck and lack motivation, part of the reason could be those energy sucking little irritants that you keep putting off until tomorrow. Don’t allow these things to go undone. These small miscellaneous undone projects are a source of discouragement and drain your energy.

Eliminate excuses, get rid of irritants and push forward.  Stop watching the sky, and start planting so you can one day reap your harvest.  No matter what direction the wind is blowing or how many clouds are in the sky, start making progress by conquering the little things; it will give you encouragement to start tackling the big things.
