The next step, the best response (whether an answer or question), the sales pitch, the advice, the decision … they are often much simpler than we tend to imagine.
Depending on how your brain works, of course. Some people are wired to think ‘in terms of simple’. I, however, am not one of them by default. I have a tendency, at least at times, to over-complicate things.
But the more I practice looking for the simple, most obvious, least effort solution to problems and questions, the more I get better at it, and the more effective I become.
