“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci
There are 3 certainties in life:
- And people COMPLICATE their lives as much as possible.
My version of COMPLICATED looks like this:
- OVER SCHEDULED weekends.
- Saying “Yes” when I should Say “No”.
- Getting DISTRACTED.
It’s so easy to COMPLICATE our lives.
The more we complicate, the harder it is to succeed.
Tony Robbins said, “Complexity is a mortal enemy of success.”
A HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL life is based on SIMPLICITY.
SIMPLIFYING is about:
- Knowing your PRIORITIES.
- ELIMINATING the unnecessary.
- Having the COURAGE to make changes.
HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE:
KNOW YOUR PRIORITIES
A SIMPLIFIED life starts by knowing your PRIORITIES.
SIMPLICITY is about spending our limited time on the people and things we VALUE most.
It’s knowing what is important and eliminating the DISTRACTIONS that get in the way.
ELIMINATE THE UNNECESSARY
A SIMPLIFIED life is about ELIMINATING the unnecessary from our lives.
Clutter crushes SIMPLICITY.
It must be eliminated.
The other day I DELETED all of my texts.
It felt LIBERATING.
It makes my iphone feel 10 pounds lighter.
What do you need to ELIMINATE?
This will make more room for what matters most to you.
SIMPLICITY REQUIRES COURAGE
It’s having the COURAGE to say “No” to an offer that steals your time.
“No” is LIBERATING.
“No” makes SIMPLE possible.
When you say “No” you eliminate distractions and have the time to focus on your priorities.
It’s not easy to tell Aunt Irma that you won’t be at her holiday dinner.
But sometimes it’s necessary.
SIMPLICITY IS POWERFUL

What do you need to SIMPLIFY in your life?
It’s a SIMPLE question that can lead to a REMARKABLE place.
