Simple isn’t Easy
Keeping things simply is a goal for many of us. An overly complex life can overwhelm and often is keeping us away from the things we really love.
Even one of my favourite quote about simplicity, by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr is not simple at all…
“I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.”
Finding the simplicity in things is a process of mastery.
Meditation, for examply, is simple – just watch your breath without judging it – but it’s not easy – masters can practice for a lifetime.
The simplest things in life are not easy… and that’s where character is grown.
Staying focused and on track, overcoming the obstacles to your goal and becoming the person you need to be to make simple things easy is the goal.
