The Joy of Decluttering. The task of decluttering has been elevated to an art form…even a way of meditating on what brings you joy. What if our minds and our lives were a closet we needed to clean out to walk in God’s will for our business, to stop trying to wear what doesn’t fit us, and instead put on Jesus (and His strength and power) daily in our pursuit of success God’s way? Imagine the freedom and joy that would bring. Imagine the SERENITY! Let’s get to decluttering for His glory! Need help decluttering your mind as you plan ahead for 2022?
Here’s a great exercise that will help: the brain dump (not my original idea, so kudos to whomever thought of this first!).
Set a timer for 5 minutes and write down everything that’s cluttering your brain right now – all the to-do’s, the follow ups, the general STUFF. When the timer is done, you’re done. Now take 3 deep breaths, and set the timer for another 5 minutes to sort the list by business, family, etc. Now you’ll have organized the information, and when the timer is done, you’re done. Take 3 deep breaths, and set the timer one more time for 5 minutes, and use the Under Control tool to determine what’s really in your control vs. God’s. Then turn the paper over and break down your list further to what’s really yours vs. other people’s! Get the tool at erinharrigan.com/undercontrol.
This episode is brought to you by The ROOTED Group Coaching Membership!
In my conversations with Christian business women, I discovered a gap beyond the usual coaching, strategic and tactical support, and that gap is community. We need accountability, belonging, connection and discernment…because pursuing success God’s way looks different than the world’s way, and we need a community to keep us ROOTED in His purpose for our business! The ROOTED Group Coaching Membership fills this gap! God made us for community, and ROOTED is the community tailor made for accountability, supporting commitment and consistency, and a safe space for learning from and sharing with others. This membership is made for you, and it includes the self-paced Hustle with Heart Digital Course! Learn more at erinharrigan.com/ROOTED.
