Complexity Is the Enemy

Guess what?

I don't have all the answers.

Sometimes, I do know better, and I still make the mistake.

That's because I'm human, and so are you

As humans, we're going to screw up sometimes. It's inevitable.

The ones that are most successful learn from their mistakes and don't continue to do the same old stuff that just doesn't produce the outcomes and results that they want.

That's why this simple, five-step formula, borrowed from the lovely folks at Tony Robbins, works in every single situation.

  1. Know what you want
  2. Know why you want it
  3. Take MASSIVE action
  4. Know what you are getting
  5. Change your approach
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 until you get what you want

It seems simple, and maybe even a little too on the nose.

But guess what?

Complexity is the enemy of execution.

Simple is great.

We love simple because simple works.

It also creates less anxiety.

I would rather have the simple plan properly executed than the complicated one not even started or completely mismanaged.

So many more things can go wrong with a complicated strategy versus a simple one.

Fail to heed this warning at your own risk.
