You can make it easier, by surrounding yourself with tools and practices that support True You. In this edition of True You Journal you'll find 5 simple and free tools (plus a lagniappe!) to make it easier to claim your health, wealth and happiness.

Remember, True You is a journey, not a destination. By using the "moving in the direction of" principle [ Read the Blog], every step you take gets you a little closer to heart's desires.

Remember, you are not alone on this journey! Be seen and heard at: our blogfacebook, twitter (@Coach_Liz), linkedin, this monthly email.

Essential Strategy #3: Mindful Organization

When insides don't match outsides, there is friction. Think of that friction as fueling the fire of burnout. Let's reduce the friction by making sure the way you use your space, time and actions reflects your best self and highest potential. Mindful organization goes beyond arbitrary neatness and efficiency. Mindful organization consciously leverages your space, time and tasks to launch you toward your idea of success with greater ease and joy. Mindful organization is strategic and purposeful, and very, very personal.

This is not a book on organization (although you should get one). This is a book about living your life according to your terms and priorities so you can enjoy a long, fruitful career. You're going to need to develop and maintain mindfulness in three pervasive dimensions: Space, Time and Tasks.
What does "mindful" mean? Living in alignment with your priorities requires you to put a keen "eyeball of awareness" on all you do,  what fills your space, and what you give your time to, with increasing demand that everything support, not undermine, your goals. Mindfulness can get brutal. Once you tune in, you will naturally favor that which supports your personal priorities and release that which does not.
