Lately I’ve tried to simplify everything in my life. I’ve found it’s so much better for me to keep things simple.
Whenever I overcomplicate things and add unnecessary layers of junk, things get out of control. Over the past few years I’ve noticed my failures have come after periods of unnecessary complication.
I’ve made it my goal to simplify everything and stick to a simple route to make progress and achieve needed balance.
Simple. Progress. Balance.
One example of keeping things simple is my eating. I’m not following any crazy plan with the new year even though there are 18359 diets being promoted right now. I’m just keeping it simple by eating 3 meals a day. That’s it. I do also make sure I eat enough protein at each meal. Generally these are healthy meals and I include fruits and veggies but that’s not even a focus right now. Beyond that? Too much. Keep it simple. Stupid. ;)
(Surprise, 3 meals a day works for me. Without snacking I easily stick to a right amount of calories. I can’t do tiny meals or snacks… took me long enough to learn, right?)
This need for simplicity has repeated itself in a lot of other areas of my life. Work. Finances. Relationships. All of it. I’m focusing on a very narrow path and sticking with it and avoiding the rest. It’s just easier to keep it simple like that and I find it works.
If you’ve had trouble finding success at something for a long time, maybe you should try keeping it simple. It’s easier to find what does and doesn’t work when you don’t have lots of moving parts to something. Most things really are simple. Let’s not overcomplicate it.
