Simplicity, while often a great asset, is sometimes overlooked simply because it’s well, simple. Not everything requires deep thought, even though it may be sometimes be called for, but many things just require motivation and sometimes we discard simplicity for procrastination sake.
We’ve all been there. We need to create something, solve something, fix something and we begin with a great first thought, then stop to consider the effects of our actions, and dream up all manners of complicated intertwined reactions and cascades. We make the simple complicated.
Our world has become increasingly complicated. Everything seems to have layers upon layers, consider our TVs, phones and computers, all have dozens upon dozens of functions most of us will never understand, much less use. Our jobs and careers have layers of regulations, guidelines and rules, of course that may be necessary but, is it any wonder that we as individuals struggle with simplicity.
Simplicity, where have you gone?
Making the things in your life you indeed have control of simple, can be a powerful motivator. Eliminate the complexities, the layers, the stalls and self-doubt. Trust your gut, believe in yourself. Many times simple is best.
