I have always maintained that what Flab is to the human body, complications, anxiety, pressures and our inability to KISS (keep it simple silly J) is to the human mind
SIMPLICITY is a beautiful word that denotes elegance, sophistication, purity, and clarity.
It’s a virtue worth striving for, but so often it seems all too hard, if indeed we have time to think about it at all.
And that’s where the problem starts, for simplicity doesn’t just happen on it’s own. Simple isn’t as simple as it looks or sound. Ironical.
In fact, without conscious, sustained effort focused on simplicity, the opposite-increased complexity-is almost certain to manifest itself.
Complexity-whether in product design, decision-making, or any daily function-is a curse and progress killer which is to be avoided at all costs.
Too often in our working environments we come across “red tapism” “layers upon layers of management controls” “too many people” too many opinions” “too many factors to manage” etc. etc.
In fact on an average every professional comes across a wall of complexity at least twice or thrice a day.
As companies grow so does the degree of complexity which runs their operations. In some abstract and inane wisdom the top management keeps spinning a web of complexity across the organization.
In this message, my aim is to provide you with a simple three-step strategy for the successful achievement of any goal.
Ready to DE clutter? Let’s Go…
To lead a successful life, career, or business, you need only three things:
- A crystal clear understanding of WHAT you want to achieve.
- A passionate desire and burning WHY that inspires massive action.
- A plan of action, which points to HOW success will be achieved and when.
That’s it, three simple steps is all it takes to transform your life, write that bestselling book, build a profitable business, and enjoy a wonderful marriage.
The problem however is that while everyone wants to be successful, far too many people are unsure of their WHAT, WHY and HOW.
As a result, they spin their wheels, struggle unnecessarily and make the achievement of a goal a difficult, time-consuming, complex process.
The solution for complexity in your goal achievement efforts will always call for radical acts of simplicity, new and smarter rituals, and good old-fashioned common sense.
Debunking and junking old and complex layered thought process.
However this is easier said than done, and also the first step to achieve Simplicity is to do a thorough and honest introspection. It is akin to stripping all layers of clothing and standing naked in front the mirror.
Its only when you are able to truly shed the old skin, will you be able to regenerate a new layer.
Are you ready to strip? The mirror is waiting. Time is running.
