It is not the task, which is hard. It is the “clutter”, the “things and thoughts” in our heads. Most of our tasks are simple. The hard thing is to define:
What is our task and what is not?
Instead of going from complex to the simple, try to start with zero and ask:
What are the minimum numbers of steps to completion?
What are the minimum steps to xyz?
What is the concrete physical next actionable step?
Focus and clarity are the new superpowers.
Because what you want is completion. You want a solution!!!
