“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
The photo above was taken during a hike I did with family last fall in the Great Smoky Mountains. The photograph shows a path leading up a hill and then it curves off into the unknown. According to the map, there was a waterfall a few miles up the trail, and that was our desired destination. So off we went.
The path twisted and turned through the mountains; the scenery changing at every turn. It was a beautiful hike and we were eager to see what was beyond the next bend. Every now and then we would check in with other hikers that we encountered along the trail just to make sure we were on task. We were assured that the waterfall was up ahead. We could not hear it; we could not see it, but we trusted the map and the other hikers. We were confident we were on the right path and so we simply enjoyed the journey putting one foot in front of the other.
Finally, the sounds of water crashing on rocks could be heard in the distance and we knew the waterfall was just around the corner. We excitedly trekked onward and at last we arrived at our desired destination!
The Path to an Organized Life
There are similarities between hiking and adopting an organized lifestyle. We must start with a destination (goal) in mind; and then chart a course (plan), moving confidently down the path (action / journey), checking in every now and then (coaching), until at last we arrive at our desired results (success).
Side note: Encountering an unexpected detour may slow down your progress, but it does not have to become a ROAD BLOCK. Ask for help and get back on the right path. Success is just around the bend.
If you find yourself lost or going in circles because of too much clutter and chaos, know that help is a simple phone call away (480) 382-1085. Commit to that first step, and let’s get you on the right path. The path to success. Got Chaos? Get Calm.™
Fall is the time of year to release and let go. If you are ready to let go of all that no longer serves you, call now to schedule your appointment.
“Seek progress, not perfection.”
