Simple and Easy

While we often use the terms simple and easy as synonyms, we are making a distinction between them.  Simple refers to the complexity of a circumstance, problem, or strategy.  If there is clarity about how it is constructed and what one must do to address it, then it is simple.

Easy on the other hand refers to how much effort it takes to address something.  If it takes very little effort we say it is easy.  If it takes a lot of effort it is difficult.

Some conflicts are easy to solve and some are more difficult.  We can explore with clarity and depth our most complex conflicts such that we simplify our understanding of what is going on and we can come to certainty about what we will have to do to address and resolve it.  But that won't make it easy.
