"If I do not choose for myself, someone else will choose for me. I then become an instrument for the accomplishment of their goals and intentions - and mine are lost." Louise LeBrun

Did you know?
All that clutter serves a useful purpose!
My heart sang as I read a recent article in the Globe and Mail! After sustaining years of razzing from family, friends, bosses and colleagues (yes, and sometimes even clients!) for the level of clutter I manage to create and sustain around me, a recent study by psychologist Alison Kidd helps to explain the phenomenon.
Apparently, knowledge workers use information to change themselves. Which is distinctly different than how clerical workers use information. They use information to aid in the smooth running of the company; when they're finished with it, they put it away.
On the other hand, knowledge workers take notes, for example, not in order to store information but because the process helps them to learn. And we spread stuff around our desks (and onto the floor, if necessary) because the papers physically represent what is going on in our minds. It isn't that we are too lazy to file, rather that we need the array while we are creating associations, links and maps in our minds! Thank you Alison.

Letting the Light Shine In
We spend more time at work than we spend anywhere else in our adult lives. Even so, few of us ever consider the possibility that work isn't something we do, or a place we go to, but an experience we create. And sometimes, we don't make it much fun! Given that we spend more waking time at work than anywhere else, imagine the profound results on the quality of our lives if we were to make a significant change in the way we create work.
We want work environments that support and sustain life; that invite health, humor, compassion and truth. We want to succeed without having to sacrifice our integrity or anyone else's. We want to take part in creating something greater than ourselves; be part of something where the whole is more than the sum of its parts; a place where magic and miracles are a part of life. We want to be part of making the world a better place for us and our children. We want to be able to grow and expand; to stretch; and finally, to spread our wings and fly. We want our experience of flight to stand as a model of what's possible and a testimony to our courage to take the risks that will bring joy, vitality and delight back into the realm of day-to-day living.
We want to be able to breathe deeply; to relax and to laugh; to create and bring new ideas and approaches and opportunities into the light of day. We want to open ourselves to new experiences and create them for others, without the fear of being ridiculed or humiliated or dismissed. We want to be able to have work be part of our complete life process and have room for our families and friends, without the fear of being marginalized or made irrelevant.
All of this is achievable when we allow two things to happen:
Ask yourself, "When was the last time that I fully considered someone else's idea that I'd initially thought was hare-brained?" "Do I accept input from colleagues, friends, family?" "When was the last time I learned something new about myself?" "Do I let other people know what I'm really capable of?" "When did I last share a moment of personal pride or joy with someone at work?"
In the words of Marianne Williamson (often attributed to Nelson Mandela) " as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others."
