Simple and Direct
Is this the simplest way?
Is this the most direct way?
In a world of complication, simple and direct are the gold standard. They are fast, efficient, and effective.
The problem is that most people don't use these. They instead focus on the complication. The chaos. The need to prove. The need to be heard and seen.
Don't get me wrong, I've fallen prey to this many, many times. And wouldn't you know, the result has been anything but simple and direct.
When things are complicated and chaotic, take a moment, take a deep breath, and ask yourself, is this the most simple and direct way?
You may be surprised just how easy it can be.
