Simple is not easy. (Bryan, it’s too early for this.) 🤦♂️
Often, people use the words simple and easy interchangeably.
But what is simple is not necessarily easy.
“Bryan, what the heck are you yapping about?” (Flashback to discussions with my parents)
You see, the reason that so many of us don’t do things is related to the fact that they’re simply not easy (see what I did there? 🤓 )
Let’s look at the meaning of each word.
Simple means something that is uncomplicated in form, nature or concept.
Easy on the other hand means something that can be achieved without great effort or obstacles.
Here are some examples to help clarify the meanings:
👉 Starting a diet is simple. Sticking to it is not easy.
👉 Creating a routine is simple. Respecting it is not easy.
👉 Knowing your destination is simple. Getting there is not easy.
👉 Conceptualizing a strategy is simple. Executing it is not easy.
👉 Knowing how you want to manage your business is simple. Managing it the way you want is not easy.
Don’t get discouraged because what you thought was simple didn’t go as expected.
Instead, adjust, execute, repeat. There are endless variables in our paths to which we have to adjust.
If what you’re trying to achieve was easy, everyone else would have done it.
You got this!
