Hard or Easy

It’s strange how so many people isolate themselves in their struggles with life and achieving success.  They seem to think the solutions to their challenges lies only within them.  To a point, I agree.  In the final analysis, if you are going to overcome your challenges in life, you have to be the one who takes the appropriate actions.

But, why make it so hard?  Hard is defined in this context as meaning you trying to solve your problems only through your own knowledge base and effort.  There’s a thing called synergy, you know.  Generally, synergy is defined as cooperation of two or more people or things to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.  The origin is from a Greek word meaning working together.  In short, make things easy by drawing upon the experiences of others.

Think about leveraging your opportunities in life as suggested by Socrates.  He said:  “Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.”

Sounds easy to me!
