I used to not be able to say this, but now… Well, I’ll admit that I can move about freely with my work being that it is pretty much mobile. I’ll go and sit in different locations, and especially when I’m feeling stuffy in my own office I make a conscious choice to go somewhere else. Maybe it’s by a tree, by some water, or even on the patio. I have a particular waterfall near the house that I like to go sit by.
One of my biggest dreams was to not be confined to a certain place. And now, through my intentional efforts it’s becoming much easier to fulfill that.
It’s been a big dream of mine, because I believe environment plays a huge role in our ability to really flourish and maximize our potential. More organizations are starting to see the benefit of allowing remote telecommunicating with their employees, though there are still many still hanging on to stacking cubicles. The ones who change to the new model understand that their employees get better work quality as well as a financial cost savings by not using up all that office space. In many cases, it makes a ton of business sense.
Bottom line is that I make my environment a priority. It’s one thing to say that I will read to improve my mind, or exercise, or spend quiet time with just God and me, but my environment plays a huge role in my ability to do those things well.
My life areas are important to me, and if I choose to not be intentional about my environments, then I’m admitting without saying that my life areas are not important to me.
What’s important to me at that point is how I’m able to appease my circumstances.
I no longer make decisions to appease circumstances. My decisions have to count for something that matters long term. One of the most nourishing things you can give your core is the choice of environments you live, breathe, read, work, and play in.
I invite you to make your environment a vital part of your core nourishment. What happens at the core affects everything else; it either feeds your growth, or it prevents it.
If you want to continue growing and everyday become better than you were, then give yourself an environment that’s very conducive to everything you do.
