Do you ever wish you had a less complicated life?
Even if your job and life are overcomplicated out of necessity, like launching a rocket or performing brain surgery, you can still simplify everything.
How do you do it?
The fact is, the actions you are taking in your life and your job are probably not causing the overwhelm. It’s the people and the results that are causing you to feel that way.
The easier way to under-complicate is to begin saying “No” to the arbitrary and unattainable demands of others and focus exclusively on the results you want.
Here are a couple of ideas:
1) Practice the law of “Good Enough.” Perfectionism is over-rated. It will waste years of productive time that you could use to enjoy life. Set your own standards and rise to them.
2) Get good at saying “No.” Make that two-letter word your default answer for everything. And remember, sometimes, saying nothing at all gets the same result.
3) Keep in mind that the only thing you must do in life is taking a BREATH. Everything else is optional and self-inflicted.
Leonardo da Vinci said,” Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Why not show everybody how sophisticated you are?
