Simple solutions work 90% of the time.
In helping others, one hallmark of how I work is to make the process simple. The basic temple for solutions comes down to three steps. I use kindness as the starting point in determining what is simple. Then apply the answer in a modest way so it’s possible to change up the solution easily as problems arise. Finally remembering not to prejudge what the final results should look like for your solution.
Strive for simple solutions in your life.
The mistake is to hold the solution as being complicated or hard before you even start. This is only natural because you are already steeping within your challenge ahead. We do think deeply about our own problem so people tend to push complications into their path. Because people can work really hard to make something happen, it also means you push out harder in how you work against your solutions.
Hard workers tend to make their process hard also because they are used to working hard!
Don’t be hard on yourself! Don’t over-complicate your path ahead.
Move ahead with simplicity, use kindness to select actions that fit your nature, use modesty to keep each step manageable, remove judgement to cut out drama, conflict and complications… Then you will discover you can actually have enough time left over to enjoy your life as you grow into your next steps.
Solutions Require Pacing
Be patient with yourself.
Often times we want answers fast and solutions to be even faster. Well fast is harsh, and hard comes out of the swamp of harshness that people self create in their rush. Modesty removes the challenges that fast creates.
Problems tend to accumulate over time. It isn’t reasonable to expect a single action one day fix to something that took months or years to become a problem. So be patient and allow many small simple solutions, to add up over your steps, over time to solve your problem.
Take the time: to not figure out how to make everything work. Take the time: to focus lightly upon life rather than drilling into every problem you can anticipate.
I make the process overcoming a problem simple because 9 times out of 10 it’s simple. Are you up to the challenge in removing hardness out of your path?
