That question has the power to take you from an overwhelmed feeling to a relaxed one in a very short time.
We tend to create both complexity and time constraints for our projects.
We then feel an important strain and then feel like we’re underwater.
When you ask yourself “what if it was easy”, you’re trying to see the most important points of your problem, and figure out which elements are just minor.
The minor elements of the problem are the noise that creates the anxiety and stress you’re feeling.
At the moment you’ve managed to write down the problems, prioritize them, the anxiety is gone.
By asking yourself if it was easy what would you do, you remove all the steps which are not adding value to get from A to B.
It is, of course, metaphorical and you may not be able to execute a simplistic plan, but you’ll manage to make our life easier.
And your time centered, focused, and delivering is priceless. You are moving towards your target faster than ever.
