As we launch into 2022 many of us have goals, resolutions, and aspirations for the new year. The one thing we can all do to keep ourselves on track will be to simplify.
When things get complicated we tend to avoid them. When we make things complicated for others they struggle to follow our lead.
You need to reduce your complex thoughts, systems and processes down to simple, clear, understandable instructions. Simple is actually hard but the results are worth it.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes that I feel relay the importance of keeping things simple.
“Complexity is the enemy of execution.”- Tony Robbins
“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” - Steve Jobs
“Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple.” - Richard Branson
“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers who can cut through the argument debate and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.” - Colin Powell
"If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter." - Blaise Pascal
Simple is a competitive advantage!
