Oh, hi friends!
What would it look like if this were easy?
This is one of my favorite bits of advice (taken from one of Tim Ferriss’ books) that I often forget.
You can ask it about anything you’re struggling with or debating over.
Like, say I want to learn more about music theory. I could tell myself I’ll hunt around for YouTube videos and watch some and try to absorb their lessons. But the easiest version of this would be to buy a keyboard and pay to go to a class once a week. (I said easy, not cheap!)
If you’re trying to learn a new language, the easy version might be a tutor — or installing Duolingo on your phone.
If you’re trying to cook more, the easy version could be to get a Blue Apron-style meal kit delivered to your house.
If you’re trying to run more, the easy version might be to run once a week when you know you have time. Or short runs during your less hectic days.
If you’re trying to find a new job, the easy version might be someone who already knows you hiring you (the dream!) — so you might start asking around for opportunities.
It’s so easy to make things complicated. What if we made them easy instead?
