How can we get the complexity out of complexity?

We live complex lives with matrixed ambitions. How can we get the complexity out of complexity and return to what matters? 

Do we need to do the exhaustive cost benefit analysis if our gut is pointing us in the right direction? It it just our fear that is standing in the way? 

How can we return to the basics.

How can we acknowledge complexity exists but distill our perspectives down to simple truths that enable us to build a context for decision making that helps us make the right decisions at the right speed. 

What are you over complicating to ensure you don't have to face the fear of change?
