Clear the Space
Have you ever looked in your refrigerator for something that you know is there, but you just can’t find it? You move the pickles, you take out the mayonnaise, you look behind the leftover meat loaf, but you still can’t see what you’re looking for. Finally, you are hit with a blinding flash of the obvious: you need to clean out the refrigerator!
In life we periodically need to simplify and get focused by doing a version of “cleaning out the refrigerator.” One of the most powerful things we can do is to let go of those things that are complicating our lives and getting in the way of what we really want. You can’t accomplish the things you aspire to until you clear the space for them to happen.
For years I have worked with groups and individuals on the concept of “Let It Go” and the impact it can have on efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of life. What’s interesting is that most of us intuitively already know what we should let go of. The challenge is to actually take the action to end negative patterns, habits, or relationships that are getting in our way.
