“The smarter the person, and the smarter the device, the greater the complications.
This episode’s original title was “Simple Truths,” because wherever you find real challenges in your life, the solutions are often simple.
Instead, we decided to call it “Complications,” inspired by the Apple Watch, which refers to its smart device apps as “complications” when they’re displayed on the watch face.
Why would they call this device’s apps complications? Because as feature-rich and helpful as they are, they complicate the device’s original mission: telling time.
Life is similar. If we have financial troubles, chances are all we have to do is remove the complications and find the simple truth: Why aren’t we paying ourselves first?
Too much drama in your life? What complications could you remove to restore peace?
Often, the answer to our problems lies in the power of LESS—fewer complications. Think about your biggest problem. What simple truths lie at its core? What complications can you remove?
Paring things down to simple truths may seem difficult because life’s distractions make it hard to concentrate and find focus. Our phones beep alerts constantly and our attention is fragmented. But when we eliminate the noise, the simple truths become glaringly obvious.
We may think goal achievement is difficult, but the simple truth is, where is your habit-tracking data? To stay on track, you must be tracking—a SIMPLE truth!
We seem to love unintentionally complicating our lives. The smarter the device—and the smarter the person—the more complications arise. It’s critically important to remove complications and find the simple truths.
