St. Augustine of Hippo, a tremendous saint from Africa in the 4th century once said, "peace is the tranquility of order." Some thoughts as we wrap up our week:
- to which project at work did you bring order this past week?
- which project do you feel most "at peace" with?
- what can you do at home this weekend to unclutter or simplify?
The great misconception about a desire for order is that it's about controlling and being obsessive. I tend to think that those who maintain order at home and at work are not so much control freaks but have figured something out that the rest of us have yet to discover.
