Overcomplicating it is a mechanism we all use to let ourselves off the hook.
We claim ignorance and take comfort that someone else just knows some shit that we don't and that's why they are winning at something and we are not.
And maybe they do, but they had to learn it somewhere.
It's all more simple than we want to believe.
Not easy. Simple.
We think we always need to do more and be more of everything.
When all we really need to be more of is focused.
When we remove all the bullshit the only thing left is the work and that's why we complicate it.
We are scared of the real work.
The work on ourselves.
The work on our relationships.
The work on our skills.
We inherently know that the work is relentless because as we grow it asks for more.
But what if we just took focused effort and stacked days together?
What if we took care of today while it's here and tomorrow when it arrives?
Could we all win in time?
When is the last time you took audit of your days?
How much 'extra' would you find complicating your life?
All of those things stealing your energy that would be better used on things that actually matter to you.
Where would we be if we prioritized, simplified, and focused?
Faith. Family. Fortitude. Freedom.
