“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Confucius
Recently, with more time to reflect I’ve realised how relevant this ancient quote still is, particularly in the years leading up to the #covid19 event.
Our world has become ever more tech-driven and complex, with a constant focus and push to increase productivity. The disruption and ensuing stress created with the continuous implementation of automation and the continual need to upgrade systems and skills has contributed to unprecedented workplace stress levels and poor work-life balance. Many of us feel disconnected even though, ironically, we are ‘connected’ 24/7.
I’ve been reviewing tools used successfully in the past that are as relevant as ever. One of my favourites (that’s incredibly quick and easy to use), is KISS.
KEEP: IMPROVE: STOP: START
If it sounds simple, it’s coz it is.
We’ve had the opportunity to hit PAUSE and now we can RESET.
The restart, probably with fewer resources, is a chance to choose a less complicated, more balanced life and KISS.
If you would like me to send you the KISS Framework please send a request through our contacts page and I will guide you through it.
