A Little Reminder: There’s Beauty in Simplicity

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” —Leonardo da Vinci

There’s so much beauty in simplicity.

In daily life, we have a habit of overcomplicating even the simplest tasks. Even this morning, I was trying to connect the dots on a new project I’m pitching and even though the concept itself was really simple, the details felt muddy and tangled in my head.

I had to stop and remind myself that what I wanted was totally possible and tripping myself up was just an excuse to procrastinate and not follow through. Do you ever feel that way, too?

  1. I love simplicity. It’s the direction I try to go in with all of my projects- but like you I sometimes over complicate it in my head to procrastinate!

    Making things complex is easy- simplicity is tough to do.
