Keep It Simple

Doing simple things is as simple as doing things simply. Sometimes, one reason we don’t get those great stuffs done is because of the complicated ways we go through instead keeping it as simple as possible.

This is one of the reasons you have not heard from me since my last post here. Thinking of how to write a perfect one has hindered me from achieving that. This also applies to some other areas of our lives. Some things have been left undone because we have refused to keep it simple, we want to complicate things because we think that’s how we can make it look good or perfect.

If you want to write a book, a poem, letter or memo, you should just start putting it down exactly the way you can say it to anybody. Remember it is only what is written that can be edited to become perfect. Wearing heavy make-ups might make you look like a doll or horrible, instead keep it simple. Trying to impress an interviewer or a potential customer or client by complicating your looks or speech might make you lose that dream job or that big deal. If you refuse to keep your recipe as simple as possible, you might end up not eating the meal and probably leaving some others hungry too. If you have a business idea and you have decided to write a business plan, just start by outlining the major aspect of the business you can imagine, what you want to achieve and how you intend to in a simple way, you will end up having a comprehensive plan you might need to throw some out.

Simple tasks are done easily while complicated ones are difficult to achieve. Even if you have a very big task to carry out, it can be broken down into stages and done in a simple way. Most tasks are not always as difficult as we think; we only create that difficulty in our mind. This is usually because we are trying to be some else; that person we imagine as perfect or trying to satisfy somebody; forgetting that people are difficult to satisfy.

Just be yourself and go ahead to do that task as easy and freely as possible, you will be amazed by what you will achieve from keeping it simple.

Because I have decided to keep it simple, I just thought about and finished writing this piece in about 30 minutes.

You can do the same too.
