Words That Inspire - SIMPLIFY

What do you gain if you SIMPLIFY?

Dictionary* says:

to reduce to basic essentials, to diminish in scope or complexity, to make more intelligible.

What it REALLY means:

removing clutter and interference from your life and work; looking at large obstacles as the sum of small challenges; choosing to do less, have less, want less.

Why it MATTERS?

SIMPLIFYing, both physically and mentally, leaves more space for creativity, problem-solving, and exploring. Decision making is clearer, communication is enhanced and personal enjoyment is increased.

Questions that INSPIRE:

? What personal or professional situation would you like to SIMPLIFY?

? How would SIMPLIFYing make you feel?

? What do you gain if you SIMPLIFY?

? What barriers are in the way of SIMPLIFYing this situation?

? What one action can you make today to SIMPLIFY?
