Are You Going to Teach or Learn Something Today?
My cousin’s son posted on Facebook this great quote by Albert Einstein, and I just loved it.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
A fish could never do what this leopard is doing, so do you think a fish is stupid?
This made me think of my own life and that of my clients. There are many things in life I can do, and there are many things I can’t. I realize that in certain situations, I may have to rely on others to help me. This includes, but not limited to, talking to my doctor, conferring with my attorney, consulting with my accountant, and having friends and family lend a hand if I need one.
If I could tell you how many times I hear from my clients that they should be able to de-clutter and organize, I would probably be a very rich woman by now. My friend (you fill in the blank – spouse, mother, father, in-law, etc.) can handle this, why can’t I?
There could be a multitude of reasons why, but in the long run, if you need help from an expert, there is help to be had. Why struggle with this? The result of all this struggling is feeling stressed and overwhelmed. There is no reason to believe that you are stupid or inept. I am sure there are things in life you can do very well that others struggle with all the time.
You have the right to believe in yourself and offer help to those who can’t do what you can do. Conversely, you also have the right to believe in asking for help when you need it.

- It’s an investment in yourself that will give you the greatest return in more areas than one – physical space and peace of mind.
Why teach a fish to climb a tree when you know the fish won’t be able to? But, you sure could learn something about swimming from that very fish.
Sometimes we’re the teacher, and sometimes we’re the student. What can you teach someone today? On the other hand, what are you going to learn and from whom today?
