Complexity

My natural tendency is to distill and simplify the world around me. The irony is that it doesn't seem to be possible to do. Complexity is a part of life. It's a part of the world that has become the civilization we live in.

What if I lived in a tent in the woods? Would that remove all complexity from my life? My possessions would be simplified but my needs would be harder to meet and my long term path through life would still have many paths and decisions. Over-simplification is not a sustainable way to live.

Intention has been the key for me. My desire for a reduction in complexity is an intention but I've learned to be more specific about it.

Reducing the amount of physical possessions I own and have around me.

Organizing and setting goals for my personal finances.

Being intentional about my career path.

Appreciating the life that I have.
