The all-American creed that hard work will make us successful may still linger for a long time to come. But eventually, we will have to accept our limits. Work alone does not guarantee success, as taking time off and pacing ourselves are not equivalent to laziness. There must be time for both to make the whole person.
I made it through two months of a dry spell by selling my stuff, which gave me more time to focus on getting new business in the door. I’m not sure if I should be thrilled about that or just plain sad that my stuff only garnered me two months of a safety net but in truth the money was secondary to how good and free I felt with all of that clutter out of my life. What they say is true — when you get rid of meaningless clutter, you make room for the good stuff to come knocking.
