This is just a taster of the content of the book Effortless by Greg McKeown.
Not everything has to be so hard – Burnout is not a badge of honour. Often we create self-imposed pressure by striving for perfection.
We can change the dialogue in our heads:-
|Think||Anything worth doing takes effort||The most essential things can be the easiest|
|Do||Overcomplicate, overengineer & overthink||Find the easier path|
|Get||Burnout – no results||The right results and no burnout|
Quote by George Eliot “What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other”
Imagine your brain is a supercomputer – it might not perform optimally, computers slow down if their hard drive is too full they need to be decluttered. This is the same in our heads we may well be walking around with outdated assumptions, negative emotions, toxic thought patterns, this will slow down our mental energy and we will think everything is too much effort.
When everything does feel so hard? Have a warm meal, hot shower and a good night’s sleep and you feel less heavy. Ask the question, what if this could be easy…? As a society we think trivial things are easy – important things are hard. We use language to support this, it has to “Hard earned” or “It will take blood, sweat & tears“.
We then distrust if something is to easy, we may say “easy money”.
Think this week is there something you have been putting off, try asking the question “What if this could be easy?”
