Ford Saeks here coming to you from the offices of Prime Concepts Group with some more Superpower thoughts. Do you sometimes wonder why other people achieve monumental success… but you’re still struggling to get what you want in life?
If so, you’re definitely not alone.
Some of it may boil down to the differences between a can-do and a can’t-do attitude, but an even larger factor could be the strategy you are using to get where you want to go!
In my experiences speaking, training and consulting with hundreds of organizations around the globe, dealing with all types of people, I constantly run across situations where people are just making things too hard and too complicated! And it makes me laugh just to think back on all of the times in my own life and career where I made things too complicated or the answers to problems were actually right in front of me. But because I felt it just couldn’t be THAT easy, it wasn’t.
Now I know… you have to have processes and procedures, and I’m a big fan of those that improve productivity and performance to get better results, but you have to ask yourself in every situation, “Am I making things too difficult?”
If the answer is yes, it’s time to reevaluate.
So what can you do now to start making life easier?
Start by writing down three things in your life that you think are too complicated. And then list out each step you’ll have to go through to complete each of them.
After your list is done, put it down and come back to it later. Whether it’s an hour later, 8 hours later, or two days, it doesn’t matter, the key is to put a fresh set of eyes on your list.
But, when you do come back, take a hard look at every step and decide if you REALLY need all of them. If you don’t need them, then get rid of them!
As you get used to this process, you’ll start to train your mind to think in terms of simple and will start to eliminate unnecessary steps in everything you do, making life easier! Just remember, everything doesn’t have to be complicated, so don’t let it be.
