Serving as a leader within this fast-paced society requires the contemporary “leadership girl” to be able to wear many professional “heels,” if you will, while at the same time, master the art of balance.
Balance … a word that has become more commonplace in recent years, yet still remains elusive to many fearless leaders.
You may be surprised that the answer to this question lies within a simple strategy for organizing one’s clothing closet. That’s right … the clothing closet!
As you reflect upon the last time you completed this chore, think about your approach.
You likely entered your closet and surveyed the array of clothes hanging on racks, as well as the shoes stacked upon the shelves. Next, you probably gathered a few seemingly unappealing items and placed them on your bed for further inspection.
If you’re like me, you then spent some time wrestling with whether you actually still liked the items; and, you may have also tried the items on to confirm your decision to keep or part ways with them. After trying different items on, you likely made some interesting discoveries.
For example, you notice that your old “favorite pair of slacks” now fit more like culottes due to repeated trips through the washer-and-dryer cycle. Your “go to” heels, once a main staple in your wardrobe, now have worn soles and fit less comfortably on your feet. Finally, your “power suit” no longer lifts your spirits, but drains your energy, as you are forced to constantly tug at its “form fitting” seams due to unrealized weight gain on your part.
And, the list goes on and on!

FYI, I wrote this original piece in 2015. And I’m still enjoying my heels and focusing on the art of balance as a leader. Enjoy, my friends!
