What is the definition of easy? Easy means a lot of different things to a variety of different people and that’s the point Andrew would like to drive home on today’s opening segment. Do not get sucked into outside messaging trying to convince you something is easy when it doesn’t even fall in line with something you want. Andrew believes that you should have a clear plan and a clear definition towards why you’re working for the things you’re working for, that way you can define what is the best and the easiest way for you to get there.
