We’ve all experienced a point in life where we just tried too hard and the results were lousy. I remember classmates pulling all-nighters studying for a test only to get so completely exhausted they ultimately bombed the test. I also knew a guy who trained so hard for a race he wound up getting injured before he even got to the starting line!
Sometimes we learn from our mistakes, sometimes we don’t. Here’s a video where I hope to inspire you to put forth that perfect amount of effort in your business to become successful. Check it out!
To paraphrase Einstein, “things should be as simple as possible, but no simpler.” I think that applies here in that when you make things too difficult, they’re destined for failure or, at least, the risk of failure goes way up! I’m not here to argue risk theory but suffice it to say that simplicity will serve you well in your business and in becoming successful.
Now, truth be told, “simplicity” and “trying too hard” is subjective and based on one’s own perspective. What is simple to you may be entirely over the top to someone else. That’s OK. There is no need to impose your perspective on another nor compare another perspective to your own. Be your own best judge and leave it at that. Anything else simply decreases your chances of success.
To be fair, not everything is easy and complexity will find its way into matters from time to time. Get help. Break it down. Simplify. Find the best solution. Proceed.
So, before you crank up some convoluted plan for Google domination or pull together a team of highly-trained, keyboard-punching hamsters to post classified advertisements, take a step back, look at the big picture, find your simplicity, and stop trying so hard. After all, if your concoction is so complex and you never actually get to the starting line, how are you going to win the race?
Best to you!
