You have a unique gift of reducing the number of steps required for almost any task. You constantly look for ways of simplifying. For you, life is better when it’s simple and uncluttered. If you can simplify something and help the world, you will.
Sounds like you, doesn’t it?
This short video details the characteristics of your WHY, the challenges that
come with your WHY, and the solutions to those challenges.
You are one of the people that makes everyone else’s life easier. You break things down to its essence which allows us to understand each other better and see things the same way. You constantly look for ways to simplify– from recipes to business system to how you organize your garage. You feel successful when you eliminate complexity and remove unnecessary steps.
The biggest challenge that you face given your WHY is to embrace the fact that others are quite comfortable with a fair amount of chaos. To you this makes little sense. Chaos is confusing and inefficient. It adds layers of complexity that are unneeded and contributes nothing from your perspective. You have a hard time with mess and disorganization.
There is no easy answer to the dilemma facing those who share your WHY. Human beings are messy by nature and not prone to seeking simple solutions at every turn like you do. Acceptance and celebration are your friends—accept the fact that others cannot do what you do and celebrate the contribution that you make to everyone around you.
If your WHY is to Simplify, you are direct and to the point in your relationships. For a great relationship with you, you want to know what is going on, you want things simple to understand and you don’t want a lot of fluff. You don’t like drama, nor do you need a lot of attention because that would be too confusing and excessive. Conversations with you are short and sweet and you are good at making your significant other feel comfortable. Sometimes it can be challenging when you are too direct as it may seem like you are upset or unhappy because you just want the facts. Less is more for you and that can work well for some of the other WHYs like Trust, Make Sense, Better Way, Right Way, and Clarify but it may be more difficult for Contribute, Challenge, and Mastery.
You are great to have on the Team because you are great at taking the complex and simplifying it for others to understand. In meetings you are typically not very vocal and may go an entire meeting without saying anything but when you are called on for feedback or advice – you are great at summarizing what was said and making it easier for others to “get.” Sometimes you can seem disengaged or disinterested because you are gathering data or figuring out what others are saying and you can even seem blunt when your answers are short but that is your gift and when the rest of the Team realizes that – you become a big asset to the Team!
You make a great parents! You make things simpler for your kids by decreasing clothing choices, decreasing food choices and making things easier for them to do. Less is more applies and you believe that when children have less things to decide -they are happier. You do well when your children agree with this thinking – but if they want more and more (like many do) – it can become challenging for you as it goes against what you believe. Young kids will follow – older kids might want more so be ready for it!
Career choices for people with the WHY of Simplify are endless because you can do very well in many business settings. Almost every business wants things simpler and easier so that more people can utilize their business. You would be great in Marketing and Advertising as you can help people simplify their message or brand. You would be great in management as well to summarize problems or solutions so everyone can understand. You would do well as an Engineer, Doctor, Dentist, Accountant, Leadership Training, and really almost anywhere where simplification is valued.
