Over-complicating things

I???ve discovered that it???s easy to blame the complexity of issues or the complexity of people???s nature on why things fail or get done the way they do. I think that if you do want to complicate things beyond where they truly stand, it???s well within your power to. The thing about complexity is that complexity begets further complexity and you can get sucked into that whirlpool. You are then one step away from indecision, doubt and uncertainty. The way to remove yourself from this is simply to state that it???s really not as complicated as you think it is. Be brave and make a point to articulate out loud in what two ways something before you really is that simple. Don???t confuse this with having to make a decision on the issue itself ??? that will come in its time. Here, we???re concerned with the act of classification or labeling. If we tell ourselves that it???s complicated, then it is.

Simplify your life and your choices but reducing the number of complexities you perceive in the situations and issues before you. Sometimes you need to do that just so that you can move ahead. Sometimes, it gets you unstuck. More importantly, it gets you making a decision. Complexity for complexity sake, might make a pretty picture but you need to move on. Simplifying how you look at things and how you call it, may be the way forward then.
