Simplicity is a Good Thing

The other day, I woke up feeling a little overwhelmed by my dreams and goals.  Then I remembered, dreams are supposed to make my life easier.  They are supposed to make my life more fun.

Here are three ways simplicity can improve your dreaming and doing process:

1. Simplicity keeps you focused – If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, it makes sense that the most efficient way to do something is a straightforward approach. Refuse to be distracted.  Establish boundaries.  Stop multi-tasking which actually decreases efficiency.

2. Simplicity means less to keep track of – If your thoughts and actions align with your dreams and goals, it likely means you won’t have to try so hard to remember or to think straight.  Everything is pointing toward the same target.  Continually working on different projects means you’re continually having to remember where you left off and finding your flow again.

3. Simplicity streamlines to make room for possibilities – Using possessions as an illustration, whatever stuff you have is taking up room that could be devoted to what’s new and fresh.  Clear away what’s cluttering your life in the way of time and possessions.  Evaluate what you can get rid of and what you can say no to so that you get fresh traction.

As Dreaming Made Simple says, “A Simple Change Can Make a Big Difference.”
