Heeding an Idea

mfb 20200423_075502

There comes a time when an urge comes over you to put everything right. And, although this feeling finds different people at different times in their life, the younger one receives it, the better off he or she is. You find yourself with a feeling of this where you need to clean up the house and set sail on a course of keeping everything inline the best you can follow it.

The worst that can happen is your place ends up clean, and you understand what you have in the bank and that the bills are eventually all up to date. The best that can happen is that you may find yourself in a better position. You are more comfortable because you feel more at home in your house, and with better knowledge of what you are spending and where the money is going. Who knows, you may be able to put something away for a rainy day.

None of this is a guarantee, because it depends upon how you see that feeling and what you do with it. No sensing found yet? That is OK. If you look at where and how you live, and it does not suit you, start working on how your house feels and what you can do (while staying on a budget of what you earned.)

The next thing you can do is come up with a schedule to clean your abode and get everything where it should be. Clean the floors and clean the shelves and dust all that which will make you feel better. Do not be afraid to go through the drawers and see what is there and what might be better if removed. Spring cleaning does not need to wait for spring. It can be done at any time of the year, depending on whether you are happy with what you see where you live, or if you want to change things to make it neater and more efficient.

I’m not saying this is for everyone. It is good, though, for those of us who tend to ignore something until it’s later than it should be. And, for those who want to find better ways, I cannot tell you what those better ways are. They are different for each of us. What I can say is those ways are out there and can quickly work out once you set your mind to it.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
