Here is Ben Casnocha’s list, to skip the explanations:
1. Losing Weight
2. Becoming a Better Writer
3. Becoming a Better Entrepreneur
4. Becoming a Better Parent
Ben says they are hard, but also simple. I view #1 and #2 as simple, for reasons similar to Ben’s. The hardest thing about being a parent is knowing when to punish and when to ignore. The hardest thing about being an entrepreneur is, I suspect, other (competing) entrepreneurs. I will nominate being happy as overcomplicated by society. Your thoughts?
Addendum: Bryan Caplan — a man who does not overcomplicate — chimes in.
