Oftentimes we make choices that add complexity to our lives. It may not be apparent at the time, and it might not seem like a big deal, but over time these things add up.
Take writing 200 words a day for example. New users to the platform make a commitment to write everyday, otherwise they risk losing their streak. This might not seem like a problem for most, as writing new articles inspires creative thinking. But for some this might cause anxiety, for now they have to add yet another deadline to their already busy day.
I can think of hundreds of other examples in my life as well as others, including friends and family. A lot of people I know just think life happens to them and like to complain. Things continually go wrong because they openly introduce new things into their lives. These things add complexity.
So I don't really know where I want to go with this, but I think it's important to take a mental stock take before making a new and potentially life altering decision. Ask yourself "will this make my life more complicated?" when making decisions. Sometimes it's worth it as if forces you to be a better person and grow. Other times it just makes you stressed.
As adults I think it's better to err on the side of less for the older we get, the more precious our time becomes.
