We have a tendency to do things the complicated way. We think the complicated way is the best way merely because it’s complicated. But there’s usually a simpler way. It takes some discipline and open-mindedness to find it though.
If you find yourself struggling and frustrated, it may be a sign that you’re trying to do something the complicated way (which may not be a way at all. It might be a dead end). Take a step back and look at the situation. What can you do differently? What will give you more peace?
