Get Organized

There is a story about an old Cherokee who was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them: "A battle is raging inside me...it is a terrible fight between two wolves. "One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. "The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The old man fixed the children with a firm stare. "This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too." They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win the battle?" The old Cherokee replied: "The one you feed." Now, you may be thinking - Nice story. But what does this have to do with organizing and finding balance? Well, it got me thinking of a different take on this story. And it goes something like this... I have a battle raging inside of me, and it is a terrible fight between two wolves. One wolf represents clutter, and all the things that come with it like chaos, stress, frustration, loss, pain, wastefulness, hassles, and ineffectiveness. The other stands for order, and all the things that come with it like clarity, peace, gain, pleasure, usefulness, waste-lessness, ease, and efficiency. This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too. Which wolf will win, you ask? The one that you feed. Via Get Organized!
