"Sometimes the greatest gain in productive energy will come from cleaning the cobwebs, dealing with old business, and clearing the decks."
~ David Allen
As the year draws to a close, it is great time to clear the decks and move old things out of the way. Getting rid of emotional and physical clutter may be one of the most important things you can do for yourself this year, especially if you REALLY want to move forward in your life and career. These old "cobwebs" may be old beliefs, old negative feelings toward someone or some situation, or the physical clutter that makes it hard to know what resources you even have. When you get rid of the clutter both from within and without, you gain room for greater energy to produce your dreams.
This week: Start moving out the physical clutter you've held on to. Give things you no longer need away. Ruthlessly throw things out. Look at your inner world as well. What old beliefs have you been holding on to that no longer serve you? Do they keep you from trusting others? Do they keep you from trusting yourself? If so, this week create a plan for getting rid of them. Are you holding on to old feelings and disappointments from your past experiences? If so, be determined to let these go as well. If you don't know how to do this, THIS WEEK, find resources that can help you do it.
