When you make a decision to boost your career, heighten your profile, improve your life, stop putting off important goals and be your best, one of the first steps is to address energy drainers in order to free up time, space and emotional resources for the things you really want.

Recently, I was on my hands and knees in the garden, tugging on stubborn weeds, being careful to pull them up by their roots, as my mother taught me, when the question occurred to me: why weed? Why must we vanquish a healthy, living plant other than our aesthetic sense that they just don’t fit in with the plan? What would happen if we just left them alone? A shower and a few Google searches later I had reasons I already knew, but wanted to confirm. Weeds compete with flowers, grass, vegetable and fruit plants for water, sunlight and nutrients, leaving non-weed plants starving. Invasive weeds are so successful in competing for space that they overwhelm the native plants and become the dominant species.
