Cease endlessly striving for what you would like to do and learn to love what must be done. – Goethe
Simplified Organization: Learning to Love What Must Be Done is designed to walk you steadily through the multifaceted process of organizing not only your home, but also your mindset and your attitude.
How you think about – what you believe about – your life and your work matters immensely. We need to take charge of our thoughts if we desire to love what must be done. Our affections – what we love – and our attitudes – how we feel and respond – are within our ability to control if we are willing. We can grow and develop in these things if we open ourselves to them and intentionally align our beliefs, thoughts, and actions.
Module 1: Decide
The first module, Decide, is about changing the way you think, recognizing lies you tell yourself and learning how to choose your attitude. Our attitudes are the key to our change and our fruitfulness, and unless we start with our mindset, we won’t get very far.
Module 2: Declutter
The second module, Declutter, will help you sort out and simplify your mindset and routines. I’ll also explain why taking care of ourselves is so important, and how we can improve our health in order to improve our energy and fruitfulness.
Module 3: Define
The third module, Define, will help you work out what you should be working on right now and how to shift your focus so you see the right next thing and are satisfied in doing it.
Module 4: Design
The fourth module, Design, will help you create systems and supports to make it easier and smoother to do life well.
Module 5: Do
The fifth module, Do, will help motivate you to just take action and not worry about setting things up perfectly or doing things right the first time.
Module 6: Develop
The sixth module, Develop, will help you see that love and good works is the point of productivity and that repetition is practice not to be despised.
