The Hard-Easy effect

·1 min

Challenge your perceptions #

Our perceptions of the difficulty of our tasks will determine how we approach them. And our perception is not 100% accurate. Some “simple” things will turn out harder, some “hard” things will turn out easier. With that in mind check your perceptions. If you find yourself dreading something that seems challenging, dive in fully. You won’t really know until you try. If you confidently attack something and find that it was harder than you expected, don’t be discouraged. It might be hard, it might not be, but you won’t really know until you go for it.
