It really CAN be that easy

Your Thing is easy. I’ll say that again: Your Thing is easy FOR YOU. That’s the key point I want to make–it’s not that your Thing is easy for everyone, it’s not that everyone sees the world the way you see it, can solve a problem the way that you do, or work the way you do. But your Thing is easy for you.

Streamlining for Success

4

Streamlining has been on my mind these past few days.

You know when someone says something, or you read something and then you SEE IT EVERYWHERE.

Yeah, that’s me this week and streamlining, de-cluttering, making things simple and more elegant.

I’m going to share why it’s so important and why you should think about (and do it!) as much as you can.

Information vs. Action

And then there will be other people (I was one of them) who took quite a few steps to get there. And shorter isn’t always better if you paid attention along the way.

Blending and Boundaries

1

I used to be pretty proud of my multitasking talents. I was one of those “Yeah, I’m a girl and I can do EVERYTHING at once and won’t be told I can’t, either” types. Now, while I still can do a lot of things, I’ve learnt that I am MUCH better at them when they are done one at a time. Apart from singing loudly and driving (I can still multitask that no problem–much to the embarrassment of my small people) I get ‘jobs’ done one at a time.
