It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds of I achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. What am I over complicating? Well, the better question for me would probably be what am I not over complicating? I love to overcomplicate things, and that's why I say simplicity as my middle name, because it's an urge I have to fight right, like my natural tendency is to overcomplicate things, but I know that's not right and I know I need to simplify. So...

I make simplification kind of this big goal of mine, this thing that I hold up that I'm really good at, to overcompensate for the fact that I'm not really good at it, like it's not naturally a thing for me. So what am I overcomplicating? I can look around my life and I'm certain I can find lots of things I'm over complicating when I really shouldn't be. Like, to me, over complicating just proves I'm smart, right, like if I was, if I was stupid. I do the simple way, but I'm so smart I've got to, you know, connect all these doughts and do all this amazing stuff when really probably the smarter way is to simplify. But I need to justify my existence. I don't know what it is where I where I tend to overcomplicate things. So what am I going to do with this question today? Well, we're going to look at some areas I definitely think I'm over complicating and kind of address why I'm over complicating it.

I think that's the root that I personally need to work on, is why do I overcomplicate things? And this comes back to ego, I think, like I just said, it comes back to ego. So much of life comes back to ego, doesn't it? So what are you over complicating? Where you can you make things simpler, and why are you over complicating these things? I think these are really good questions for today. See You tomorrow.
