Here’s to not adding unneeded complexity to our obstacles.
I mean, it’s hard enough to keep going as it is.
But sometimes we make things more complicated than they need to be, don’t we?
I think the issue here is that simple is not necessarily easy. And it is always easier to talk and plan than it is to do.
- Maybe quit worrying about the nuances of SEO, and write another guest post this week.
- Maybe quit talking about what you want to do this week, and write three things on a note-card that get done by the end of the day.
- Maybe quit reading and talking about dieting, and have a Greek yogurt for dinner tonight.
- And maybe, to find success, it is as uncomplicated as: You need to just not quit.
The obvious example here is fitness.
How do you take care of yourself? Eat healthy and workout consistently.
It’s simple. But it’s not easy.
Always find the direct route. Look for the shortest path between A—where you are—and B—where you want to be. I tend to fill my problems with unneeded complexity and junk that just takes up space. Most problems don’t need an elaborate solution. Most problems are simple.
