What’s stopping you from simplifying your life?
- Not being able to say no. I have a habit of saying YES when I really mean no. So I end up doing things that play no role in my goals, and take my time from doing what I’ve set out to do. It’s something I’m working on.
- Over-thinking it. Sometimes you just have to rely on your intuition, and run with it. As Thomas Edison said, ‘I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.’ (Note - As part of the induction for my new job, I was given a book Fail, Fail Again. Good call).
- Not starting. Just start! I learnt this from a great mentor. She always said to me when I was struggling with a problem or a project, ‘Just start writing’ and as simple as this is, it really works.
