Casual effort in HQ contaminates the other four

Iowa River dam in Iowa City
The past is water over the dam. The future is up to us.


The in-box of life just keeps filling up. Day after day. Relentless. This is why HQ organization is so critical to balancing our mind, body, spirit and career.

Get too far behind or too disorganized on what’s a priority and what isn’t and everything else is contaminated.

We stress out so our attitude gets tainted. We don’t have time to exercise, so our health insidiously declines. We don’t have time to pray or be still, so our focus becomes more on ourselves and less on others. We struggle to keep up at work and we are passed by for opportunities and growth.

We know this.
