Simplify, Simplify, Damn It, Just Simplify!

Yesterday I spotted a friend’s Facebook update that said “simplify, simplify, damn it just simplify” which really struck a cord with me.  I sat there amongst new-baby chaos and a mounting to-do list, and started going through everything that was playing on my mind, wondering if there was anything I could make less complicated…

Goodbye Stress

I’m sure we’ve all been in the situation where we’ve overcomplicated something, and probably got stressed or overwhelmed as a result.  Sometimes things get tricky because we’ve created too many options for ourselves or we just aren’t thinking clearly.  Other times the drama of a situation can take hold and before we know it we’ve created a monster scenario born from something originally quite straight forward.

Whatever the case, asking yourself “How can I simplify this?” or “What’s the easiest option here?” can really make a big difference.

By having a conscious awareness that there COULD be a simpler ways of doing things, and then questioning your processes and procedures, you open yourself up to a less complicated way of life.  And when you’re in the mindset that life really can be simple, you’ll be amazed at how much more you can get done in a day.

So today, after putting off selecting a new health insurance provider for weeks, I’ve simplified the process.  Instead of being bamboozled by options and overwhelmed by different policies, I wrote down what I needed covered, looked at two comparison websites and then made my decision.  Not rocket science, as they say, but after procrastinating for far too long this annoying task has turned into something of a sore point.  With a clear mind, and the ‘simplify, simplify, damn it, just simplify’ approach, it’s ticked off my to-do list now.  BIG SIGH!

What are you going to simplify this week?  Post a comment below and let me know!
