Simple and easy are not the same thing...



Sometimes I have these little sayings or phrases that make a really profound difference in my thinking... they often seem like semantics or something that isn't worth even thinking about, maybe they aren't, but the thoughts that they make me have in my head are worth it, they motivate me or make me happy or make me think.

One of those little sayings I have is "Simple and Easy are not the same thing" 


Here's what it means to me:

One of my favorite quotes of all time is "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."Mahatma Gandhi. Think about that... there is no word in that sentence that most 4 year old kids don't understand. It's a super simple phrase... but an extremely hard task for most people to actually pull off. 


You want more money in your pocket - just make more and spend less, it's that simple... but it seems to be hard for the vast majority of America. 


You want to lose weight - just put less calories in your body than you burn everyday, no really... it's that simple! But it is very hard to pull off for some people.


You don't like where you are living - Move or make a choice to enjoy your situation... not a complicated issue but incredibly hard for some folks to keep from falling into the trap of just pouting and bitching. 


You want to help those around you - just do it, volunteer, find a program... it's super simple.... or you can just bitch about how the government doesn't help people...


Don't have the time in your life to do all the things you want to do? Think that's why it's so complicated? Lack of time is your in-depth reasoning for why it's more complicated than this post is making it out to be? Quit fricking watching American Idol and get the things changed that you want changed in your life!


Nike's iconic phrase "Just do it" is the next best phrase to sum it all up... the three most simple words in the world... but the world is still trying to figure out this very hard, but simplest of phrases when it comes to applying it to their own lives. 


Sorry this is so random... its was just in my skull.

  1. Simple to me is perfect right now. Enjoy what I have, if I want more...I will get it my way. But not stress about it.

    Easy...I don't like it. It sounds too easy, too boring?

    Even though I like simple, I want to have to work to keep it simple. Easy sounds almost like a cop out, like you don't have to do anything to get there.

    Am I making sense?
