Order and Routine are Bedrock Stones for Success

Success in your endeavors/resolutions/goals and dreams (however you coin the term for making a successful 2017) happen when you have these two bedrock stepping stones in place—Order and Routine.

Without Order, coupled with Routine, no matter what you set out to accomplish, success will most likely be temporary at best.

ORDER sets life in alignment.

Take for example the importance of proper vehicle wheel alignment.

Five Stepping Stones for a Successful 2017

In what sequence of importance would you put the words in the picture above?  
Would you agree that some of these words unlock the potential of the others?

What benefit do they have for your life?

The sequence of importance you would give those words may depend in part on your behavioral/personality traits.  Some individuals would need to have “A Plan” established before setting out to create the others.  On the other hand, some people could not create “A Plan” without having “Order” and “Space” lined out.

Understanding yourself and your natural behavioral tendencies will help you be more successful in 2017!  Perhaps as you look at these stepping stone words, one or two of them pop out in your mind.  Why did that “stone” come so quickly to mind? 

Take some time to reflect on why it came to mind and what you need to do with it, then determine what you will do with the other stones?  

Stepping stones have a job to do.  

They are meant to help us get from one point to another. Where is it you want to go in 2017?  

For further reflection, consider the following representational ideas…

New Year's Resolutions on Repeat

It’s the time of year when we set up what we resolve to do in the new year.  Many commercials and talk shows always seem to begin with the “healthier you” mantra and quickly point out the fact that this is the number one New Year’s Resolution that has a perpetual “repeat” button.

We should all be encouraged by those who have gone before us who hit the “repeat button” time and time again—never giving up.   They lead the way! 

Take for example Thomas Edison, most noted for his invention of the light bulb.  In reply to his numerous attempts on various experiments regarding electricity, Thomas Edison said, “I know several thousand things that won’t work.”

Abraham Lincoln had his own set of perceived failures before becoming our nation’s sixteenth president through the most trying time of our nation’s history.

What can be learned from these men?  In a word –Perseverance.

So what if your New Year’s Resolution(s) is or are the same as last years; you know what did not work and can build on that!

Take a week or two for thoughtful reflection on what resolutions you want this New Year—even if some are repeat resolutions.

Make those resolutions specific enough to be measured but not so easy as they do not stretch you in a healthy way.  If they are too vague, you’re let off the hook.

As the year progresses you more than likely will come along roadblocks.  Don’t let those stop you!  Persevere.  You just found one way that does not work, now keep moving.

I am sure by the end of 2017, you’ll have grown to understand new things about yourself, others, and will have developed a greater sense of who you are and what you are to be about!

HG Labs’ Brightly Green Cleaners wish you much success as you persevere in your resolutions for this New Year!

The Week Before Christmas--Green Clean Checklist

Feeling in the mood for a light-hearted Christmas comedy, I watched “Christmas with the Kranks” last night. As in the movie, if loved ones cannot be with us, we are less inclined to decorate and or host holiday get togethers.  If holiday guests are on the docket, that can be our motivation for making our homes as festive as possible .  I hope your guests gave you more advanced notice than the Krank’s received!

With one week to go before Christmas, are you finding yourself scrambling to get everything ready?  Though we can’t purchase gifts for you, we can give you a Christmas green cleaning checklist to help you maintain a green clean, tidy environment for your family and guests.

Create Mental Space During the Holidays

I love to look at beautifully decorated homes all decked out for Christmas.  However, I find pleasure in bringing out just a few of my favorite Christmas decorations.  The simple Christmas décor in my home has a calming effect on myself and my family.  It is a bit of a mystery but, less décor = more mental space. 
Perhaps, you could use more mental space this holiday season.  You may want to consider less decorations in exchange for more mental space.

Take it a step further and create a simplified gift list.  Maybe you began your Christmas shopping, but are feeling overwhelmed.  Maybe you have not even begun shopping and yet feel overwhelmed, either way, you'll find some relief in this post!
