It’s Not Complicated

When trying to figure out problems at home and problems at work I often find myself working through complicated problems and coming up with complicated solutions.

But when I look back at past problems they are rarely complicated. They were hard or they were emotionally painful, but they usually weren’t that complex.

I think that 99% of the time we convince ourselves that our lives are complicated so that we can avoid difficult decisions or pretend that we are not making a selfish decision.

Next time you find that your life is complicated or too busy. Step back and ask yourself what hard decision am I avoiding?

Life isn’t complicated it’s just hard. Embrace the suck.
