This time of the year is once again upon us.. time to trim the tree and get the house ready for the Christmas festivities to come.
I love our tradition of going out as a family and cutting our own tree, bringing it back home and decorating it. They even made a movie about us: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
It’s getting worse. Time to take a deep breath, this is only a small pack of hangers. They can’t possible get the best of me. In that calm moment, an idea (a divine inspiration?) comes to me. I just pick up the tangled mess with 2 fingers and gently shake it. Poof…. 5 hangers fell easily on the counter, ready to be used. Yeah… could it be that easy? I did again… same results. I was able to un-tangled the entire pack in less than 5 minutes. No frustrations, no temper loss.
Sometimes the solution to our problem is a lot easier than we make it to be. It’s all too easy to get stuck on a mindset that “this is the right way, the logical way to accomplish the desired results”. But sometimes, thinking outside of the box we can get much better said results. Don’t close your mind to simple opportunities.
