Easy vs. Simple.

I don’t know about you, but every time I travel and not drive, I spend every minute of my time listening to talks, online courses etc. Yesterday, I listened both to Gary John Bishop and Mel Robbins on Creative LIVE and both of them made this elegant distinction between easy and simple.

I never said it was easy. I said it was simple.

– Gary John Bishop

We tend to mix those two up – sometimes on purpose. Because nothing worth having comes easy, we make believe that the solution itself is complicated when it often times is incredibly simple. It just takes effort. And most of the time it’s worth it.
