Why does everything feel so complicated?

For so long, I chased ever-increasing turnover, shiny offices packed with staff, and respect from my peers.

I even went on the TV show The Apprentice to try to prove something to god knows who!

The strange thing about achieving big things is that they never feel like that at the time, and you pick holes in them from the moment you get there.

In fact, I don’t think I ever believed I was successful.

Always flying by the seat of my pants, trying to keep this big boat of expensive people, offices, resources afloat.

I lived within a whirlwind, and I believed the only way to get free of it was to spin faster and suck up more and more things.
I look back at it now and I smile at the lunacy of it all.

Even as I write this, I still have the hangover from those days. In many ways, I feel happy that I realised that life chasing the cheddar is simply not what brings joy, happiness and contentment to my world.

Simplicity does.

And simplicity for me means freedom, time, and opportunities.

Instead of being tied to ‘must do’ activities, or big overheads that must be paid, simplicity has set me free.

In fact, simplicity has made me wealthier in time and flexibility, but strangely it also has made me far more financially wealthy than when I had two businesses turning over a million in revenue.

This anomaly is purely down to focus. Removing overwhelm, distraction, and non-essentials out of my life, I am able to get so much more done in a short space of time.

I have space to think, to plan, and to complete tasks.

I feel I am continually progressing and it’s because I have simplified.

It was this aha moment that formed the basis of Progressive Simplicity.

I want that same, centred, successful feeling for you.
