is much easier if you have a home office
that supports your increased success.
In order to take your life to the next level and enjoy even greater success, it really is helpful to have an organized workspace that you enjoy being in. A good workspace facilitates your productivity!
It is so much easier to undertake a challenging task when your physical environment is serene and free of clutter.
Re-Imagining Your Workspace
Does the idea of reorganizing your home office environment seem daunting?
Well, complicated feats begin first with a simple intention.
What is the intention for your home? How do you imagine it, ideally?
Whether you have a four-story mansion or a studio apartment with a roommate — what do you picture in your mind when you see your home serving you better? Start from this intention!
Next, set an intention specifically for your office area. Create a clear visual image in your mind, of you standing in your workspace and feeling supported by it. Imagine that the environment is so simple and clean and organized that you feel certain you could accomplish anything there!
Here is my standing desk at home (yes, I like to stand while I work for most of the day):
Consider state-of-the-art homemakers. They conceptualize their “profitability” as making a home that successfully helps to restore and re-energize their family. When you think about, that’s just about the most noble profession that there is.
This process of beginning with a clear intention is an effective first-step toward achieving any goal. It is particularly effective for undertaking improvements to your physical environment.

The 2 Paths toward Achievement
Every minute is valuable when you’re working toward growing your business. You won’t have to waste time on unnecessary inconveniences when you’re organized. Losing your train of thought because your surroundings are so chaotic will be a thing of the past. My philosophy on this is pretty basic. I have found that there are in essence 2 different paths toward making significant achievements within your life:
#1) The Bombastic Way
#2) The Swim-with-Current Way
The swim-with-current way of achieving involves using clarity and focus to align yourself with a simple purpose.
Which of these two methods of achieving greater success do you choose? Me? I prefer the swim-with-current way.
It’s easier to understand this principle when we look at an example:
Chicago’s O’Hare Airport had over 2,400 flights a day last year. That’s almost 70 million people floating up and down through the air. We’re talking about enormous, heavy flying machines ascending and descending every single minute, carrying live human beings!
If we humans can organize a project as outrageously intricate as Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, we can certainly organize our homes and offices. Every day people are successfully completing huge projects. I’m referring to projects that have so many moving parts that many would have said, “impossible!” But extremely complex projects are entirely possible if you start with a clear intention.
