Where do things feel complicated today? Because I bet there’s something, somewhere.
For me, it’s schedule-related stuff. How do I fit in all the things I want to fit in, when there continue to be only twenty-four hours in a day? Every day? Couldn’t we have a few thirty-hour days every once in a while? But no, apparently we could not.
I have so many good ideas for what to do with those extra hours. And yet they continue to not exist. So: back to the how-to-make-things-simpler drawing board I go. We can do this.
Maybe for you it’s something else—your dinner routine, your shoe collection, all those files on your laptop screen. But don’t worry. We’ve got a plan.
There is something in your life that could be made simpler right now. I know this because you are human, and we humans tend to make things more complicated than they need to be.
In our homes, in our work spaces, in our cars, in our routines, in our calendars, in our closets, in our garages, even in our relationships—if we aren’t paying attention, the less-important details will crowd out the essentials, every time.
No matter what needs simplifying in your life—your wardrobe? Your morning routine? Your kitchen cupboards?—you can follow these same steps to figure out what you need, what you want, and what to let go of.
