Structure is the nature or pattern of a particular entity or thing. When we observe something we see its totality. Bringing structure into our lives on a regular basis can be very beneficial though if taken to its extremes it can also be detrimental to our growth. Structure & boundaries go hand in hand when used in parallel with each other. They can prove beneficial in all areas especially when we successfully teach our children to operate in the same way.
When we seek to bring structure into our lives we are exercising a discipline which will naturally tame the egotistic part of our personality and assist us in completing daily tasks that we would otherwise ignore. It is very easy to put something off until tomorrow or to let ignorance become one of our dominant habits, allowing issues such as our finances or commitments to spiral out of control. What we can often easily overlook is the fact that when we do ignore something we make the road ahead harder for ourselves.
