Dec 14 – Could simplification be the key? Have things gotten much more complicated, complex, or challenging than you thought they would be or should be? Do you feel like you are spinning your wheels in order to make progress on a particular initiative? Are you going through the motions in a particular endeavor, yet believe it could be more efficiently executed? When we are impacted by more complications or complexities, we can easily get caught up in what is overwhelming or challenging about it.
When progress feels impeded, it can impact our ability to make progress on a variety of fronts. Taking a step back to look at the situation in simpler terms may help you better determine your next steps so that progress can begin again.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to a different perspective of your current situation. What unique talents and skills do you bring to the situation that need to be better leveraged or focused? What aspects of the situation are prohibiting you from being able to do your best work? What steps or protocols could be eliminated without negatively impacting the final outcome? How can you make a particular portion of the effort easier or less complicated? How can you divide up the responsibilities to get more accomplished in a systemized or piece-by-piece manner, so you can see progress happening again? The idea of dividing and conquering can be just as much about how you tackle a situation as it is in having several people helping. When you divide and conquer in how you plan and execute, not just in who is responsible, you will be amazed at how far you can go. Simplicity increases understanding and the ability to replicate success.
