Simple Isn’t Always Easy

The Powerful Paragraph

In a recent coach training session, I surprised myself by saying to my practice client, “sometimes simple things are hard things.” It’s a simple statement, but it holds a lot of meaning. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how simple the task is or how easy or quick it is to accomplish. What may matter more than the logistics is our mindset: Do we have a trend of resistance? Or do we seek responsibility and accountability? Taking a moment to think about the “why” of task avoidance is a powerful shift. The types of questions we ask ourselves when navigating hurdles can greatly influence the outcome.

The Powerful Question to Ponder

Where and why do you carry resistance to simple tasks?
