Because we have different definitions of easy, firstly, and we really do not know our own selves.
To find that something is easy or not, is relative a lot of variables. Picking up a glass of water is considered easy, but if you are tied down or that glass of water is 1000′s of miles away, it is not. A lot of things are ‘assumed’ to be in their respective places for a ‘thing’ to be easy. That is where the confusion in definitions come in.
We think that starting a blog is easy. Well, it is. But we have already confused ourselves by saying that our objective is to start a blog. That is not the objective, now is it? The objective probably is to ‘start a community of like-minded individuals’ or something more concrete. Starting a blog is easy because you know how to start a blog. Starting a community of like-minded individuals is also easy, but only if you have either done it before or have read the right material on how to start such a community. Defining the objective clearly, simply and accurately is where most of us make the mistake. Had you known the real objective of you doing something, you would not only do it better, but might end up changing your game plan accordingly.
The reason anything is not easy is:
- either you do not know what you really want to do,
- or you really do not know how to do it.
The first problem is solved by smart work, the second problem is solved by hard work.
Make sure you know what you are doing (haven’t you heard that one before, heh.)
