Getting organized -- revisiting....


Like a many of us who are faced with the challenges life affords, we find we have to practice to achieve some of our objectives. Most of us don't become good pianists because we sit down at the piano and play Chopin or the Beatles. Even they didn't just "have it." They worked hard and often to find and craft their melodies. And a few of us have had to learn how to be part of a relationship. In reality, it might take a marriage or two to find success at learning how to become a couple.

The same can be said for establishing how we approach the space we live and work in. It isn't a one-time deal. And there is not a lot of art to the deal. It's about commitment -- going back again and again -- revisiting, re-investing time and care to reach a goal. And while we are doing just that, we are discovering oh so much about ourselves and our past, present and future. It can be a rewarding experience, that revisiting.

Just last week, I uncovered memories that were precious and transferred old photos, scanning them into my computer and sharing them with family and friends. We all had an unexpected opportunity to enjoy what was long ago and far away, only now just a few clicks as we captured what had been lost for years.

That is the beauty of going back, not just once, but as many times as it takes. And we don't have to do it all at once unless certain circumstances dictate that we do. What a find to understand that repetition can be a wonderful way to attain satisfaction. After all, Rome wasn't built in a day!
