Regardless of goals, I try to find words of wisdom that speak to me and add meaning to my life. I follow Gretchen Rubin on Linkedin and last year, after she released her new book Better than Before, she provided the quote “Outer order contributes to inner calm” on her Linkedin post and it was exactly what I needed at the time. I wrote it on my board at work (and is still written there).
I read The Happiness Project, Gretchen’s first book and liked the concept. We really have to figure out what makes us happy and to do those things.
“Outer order contributes to inner calm” is a good motto for me for 2016 as I try and get things (in my life) organized. As things are in their place, less time and energy needs to be spent on the unimportant stuff and that will lead to inner peace and time to focus on what matters.
Thinking back, this quote was the likely catalyst for the final push to launch my blog (as I kept procrastinating). Thank you Gretchen!
I’m not sure if Words of Wisdom Wednesday will be ongoing but I thought it was appropriate for today. Let me know if you like this and if I should keep these Words of Wisdom Wednesdays going.
