Is it really as complicated as you think?
Sometimes we see things from the wrong perspective. We think they are complex, complicated and wicked to learn, use to do. We see them as something unattainable, something that will always be either just out of reach, or a million miles away. Sometimes we stop and think to ourselves, “That will never happen…”, or “I could never do that…” Is it really that complex, that complicated or that wicked? Many times they are not, and we all need to learn that about ourselves, the things we do, the thing we would like to accomplish, use or do.
I think we all sometimes just need to step back and re-evaluate how we are peering into our path. How we perceive the obstacles on that path, and where we ultimately want that path to take us (whether it involves a turn, a new path or more). Sometimes, we have to brave where the is no visible path – and with the right support behind us – our group of people, whether online or offline, that are our backing, the pushers pushing us to excel – we can build a path. Our own path.
Does it need to be complicated?
Sometimes, and being a web programmer by trade I see this alot (and have even been guilty of it myself), we over complicate things. We make them harder than it should be. It’s nothing with our perspective or outlook, but in our natural habits. We add steps, layers and side trails – not out of the fear of failure or other things pertaining to our paths and such, but out of a necessity to be thorough to the point of complications.
Why? We all have off moments, and sometimes that is all it is. A moment of clouded clarity, or no clarity at all. Other times it’s the best we know at the time, and we just haven’t honed out skills to work, create and be lean, mean machines at what we are doing. Finally, sometimes we just do it to see if we can – which can work against us, or for us, depending on what the outcome should be and what the outcome ends up being.
How about we make things uncomplicated?
Let’s face our fears, let’s build that new path, let’s learn about who we are, what we can do, should do and want to do. Then, let’s get out there and do it. No more complications from us not pushing forward, okay. How about we try to maintain clarity – yes sometimes we just need to slow down or stop to gain that clarity – and that’s okay. Your competitors (if your applying to a business mentality) aren’t going to get that far ahead of you if you stop or slow down to renew the clarity. Think about it, they won’t get any farther ahead than you staying in a cloudy state for a longer period of time, now will they. And that clarity may give your business just the edge it needs.
In our personal lives – let’s slow down and find that clarity – to interact well, live well and take more moments to cherish those around us. Those who are helping us on our paths deserve nothing but our best in return for what they do for us. Let’s give them that, shall we?
