The Big Orange Suitcase

It's again taken way too much time to 'get a blog done'; it's been on my to-do list for weeks now. Finally, the title comes to mind: The Big Orange Suitcase. I'll get to that momentarily.

What do you need to get done? What's on your list of things to do? And, what's stopping you from accomplishing these things?

In Office Zen, a recent Lunch & Learn for Cayman National Bank, Cayman Islands, we talked about the never-ending to-do list and feeling you never get off the treadmill of things to do. Not taking action to get these things done:

  • increases the stress response.

  • creates a feeling of burden.

  • wastes valuable money.

  • wastes valuable time.

  • deteriorates motivation.

  • creates chaos and confusion.

  • takes away from time for more pleasurable pursuits.

Making a list is not enough! It's vital to take action. That can be difficult for those who procrastinate or get distracted. What's on your list? What distracts you? What can you accomplish today? To move forward, and live a more burden-free life, determine your priorities and resolve to get things done, beginning today.

Look for my upcoming webinar "Taking Action" later 2023 or opt in for a 2-session coaching package which takes you from where you are to where you want to be.

The Big Orange Suitcase and Traveling Light

Upon reflection, my friends and family must have all sighed with exasperation when I showed up with that giant, orange suitcase. It usually met the limit for checked-baggage weight. For this summer's travels, 2023, I opted for carry-on, and it's a lesson in just how much we need in order to have a pleasant experience (or life).

Of course, this story has a lesson in how much material 'stuff' we have (that's too much) and for the extra baggage that we carry emotionally and mentally that undermines positivity, flow, and ease. Burdens like old resentment, worry, regret, fear, unforgiveness.

Where might you need or want to 'get light' in your life? Are you overly busy? Burdened with too many demands? Holding onto things of the past that you cannot change? Or, are you just burdened with 'too much material stuff'? Free up energy and space by de-cluttering and donating things that add up to 'too much stuff' and by letting go of fears and resentments.

To help you create the life you want to live, classes, workshops, corporate trainings, and private coaching all resume later in September. See more here:

See you further down the road. Donna
