Keeping On Track

Years ago American minister and writer  Maltbie Davenport Babcock made an interesting observation about success.

One of the commonest mistakes and one of the costliest is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic – something or other which we do not possess. Success is generally due to holding on, and failure to letting go. You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course of reading, train yourself physically. Will it be success or failure? It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word decide contains. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success. Remember the Chinese proverb, With time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes satin.  

Whether you are climbing a rock wall or keeping the desk or kitchen island clear of clutter, success is generally due to learning new skills and keeping on track with the journey. Do you need someone to help you learn the strategies and techniques to get you where you want to go?

Professional organizers are teachers who work with your personal preferences to help you become more productive. What would you do with a few more hours this week?
