After all, there are various things that stand in our way on the path to greater success and fulfillment. One of them is the tendency to make things more complicated than they are.
Now, don't tell me that this doesn't affect you. I bet that if I were to observe you, we would identify various things that you are making more complicated than they need to be.
To get to the root of the matter, I share below:
These consequences are also the symptoms by which we can recognize unnecessary complicatedness. Here are three of them:
I'm glad you asked. Here are three steps to do just that:
Create clarity about results.
It sounds very simple, but is often forgotten: Create complete clarity about what you want to achieve. Because then it is "only" about the most effective steps to get there.
Instead, many discuss the steps in all detail without the goal being really clear to everyone. This then quickly becomes very complicated, since you can take an infinite number of paths, starting from the current state.
Often it becomes extremely complicated when we try to think in detail several steps ahead. The uncertainties increase exponentially.
Instead, it is usually much better and easier to take the first steps and then look further. Because at the new point you see completely different things again.
This line of thinking is also followed in "rapid prototyping", because otherwise it takes far too long and is unnecessarily complicated to bring new products to market.
Apply Occam's Razor.
Occam's Razor essentially says that given multiple alternatives, the least complicated one should be preferred. This is because it carries the least amount of uncertain influence.
So always ask yourself which is the simplest alternative in the current situation, whether it is to solve a problem, fix a disruption, launch a strategic initiative, achieve a vision, etc.
And then choose exactly that path.
So, here you have some thoughts and suggestions on how to make the world around you simpler instead of more complicated. The effect: more success, less frustration and greater momentum.
